Precision ring track offers conveying solution

Precision ring track offers conveying solution For over 50 years Lippert has been building special purpose machines for the ceramics industry. It principally serves the tableware, sanitary equipment and engineering ceramics sectors. The glazing machine for toilet bowls and wash basins is just one of a broad range of equipment it produces. The old design of this particular machine required the purpose-built manufacture of the arc-shaped segment in-house. For the new design, sourcing an alternative from HepcoMotion provided a ready-made solution that is not only more accurate but also less expensive. The two HepcoMotion PRT linear sections specified by Lippert are each 600mm wide and the arc-segment, 799mm with an angle of 90deg; its carriage is belt-driven by a geared motor. PRT ring segments and slides are available in four widths from 12 to 76mm in diameters from 93mm to 1,033mm; straight lengths are available in one piece up to 4,020mm. Special diameters and individual segments are manufactured on request. Compared to re-circulating systems the HepcoMotion V-principle offered Lippert many practical advantages. The bearings are manufactured from highly durable carbon steel and are easily adjusted to be play-free. As a result they run quietly and with low friction. The system's specially designed carriage conveys the nozzle of the hose containing the glazing solution to the point of delivery at a speed of 200mm/s.
