Reliability in demanding areas

Reliability in demanding areas High loads and demanding duty cycles can compromise the operating efficiency and life of many linear motion systems. These however are the precise operating criteria for which the new SBD Sealed Belt Drive from HepcoMotion has been designed. This high performing yet cost competitive product provides a compact and exceptionally clean linear solution. It also introduces a brand new method of sealing that is considered to be far superior to that of alternative products on the market. SBD incorporates a flush, metal cover strip that runs the entire length of the high strength aluminium beam which houses the linear guide and belt. This prevents the ingress of dirt and debris into the system. Many of its competitors simply recess the belt into a groove within the body of the system but this method does not provide anywhere near the same calibre of enclosure afforded by SBD. SBD not only satisfies industry's need for an efficiently sealed system that is immune to its environment but also provides HepcoMotion with a system that is eminently suited to clean-room conditions. SBD is therefore introduced into two versions, standard for general engineering use and a clean-room alternative that is certified by the Franhofer Institute to confirm its compatibility. The clean-room version differs only slightly in its sealing method. It also contains a greater proportion of stainless steel components and has extraction ports in the beam. This feature enables the customer to add a partial vacuum system to remove any debris from inside the unit before it becomes airborne.
