Off the shelf connectors for parallel motion

The continuous development of the HepcoMotion Utilitrak linear motion systems has already brought significant benefit in terms of enhanced quality, availability and cost. The Utilitrak linear guide provides a narrow, compact profile that is well suited to a variety of production environments where smooth, high speed motion is required. And now thanks to the introduction of standard bridge connections parallel Utilitrak systems can be installed with ease.

Utilitrak is an ideal choice for running two systems in parallel where one slide uses DualVee guide wheels and other MadeWell crowned rollers. As precise parallelism is difficult to achieve it is not uncommon for mounting surfaces to be slightly out of true. The Utilitrak design compensates for these mounting errors and does not require absolute parallelism for accurate operation.

The DualVee guide wheel carriage assembly and vee channel side serves as the motion guide while the crowned roller and open channel allow for misalignment. The benefit is significant savings in cost and assembly time associated with mounting and surface preparation.
