Bishop-Wisecarver Hepcomotion GV3 - Linear Guidance & Transmission

Bishop-Wisecarver's Hepcomotion GV3 provides a wide array of precision linear guide components utilizing guide wheel and roller wheel technology. Slides are available in three different precision grades, ranging from completely ground surfaces to as-drawn quality, to fit performance and economic needs. Lubed-for-life guide wheels come in twin bearings, double row bearings, and compact slimline bearings. GV3 may be used as a simple guide or as a self-actuated rack or belt driven system. To view a list of compatible slide/bearing combinations, see the GV3 mix and match chart.

Bishop-Wisecarver MadeWell - Radial Wheels & Crown Rollers

Part of the new DualVee family of integral wheels, MadeWell crown rollers are available in steel (sizes 1, 2 and 3) or overmolded high performance polymer (sizes 0, 1 and 2). Like patent pending DualVee integral guide wheels, MadeWell crown rollers offer a one piece construction. The inner raceway is actually the stud (except on the smallest sizes).

Bishop-Wisecarver Hepcomotion HDS2 - Heavy Duty Slide

The HDS2 Heavy Duty Slide System line adds assembled carriages, two new sizes of construction beam, and a host of improved features to the proven HDS product line. Three new larger bearing sizes up to 150mm provide even higher load capacity (up to 50kN each). The expanded line also includes a new larger size 33 single edge V slide and flat tracks, as well as stainless steel or corrosion resistant component options. The advanced HDS2 system provides the flexibility for many sizes and types of heavy duty components to be interchanged to achieve a comprehensive combination of space and performance possibilities.

Bishop-Wisecarver Hepcomotion PRT2 - Precision Ring & Track

Not all motion needs are linear, which is where PRT (Precision Ring and Track), DTS, and commercial product lines come in. The PRT line offers rotary systems, while the DTS line offers actuated rotary systems. For customers seeking a more economical rotary system not requiring high accuracy, the commercial series offers a great alternative.

Bishop-Wisecarver Hepcomotion HDRT - Heavy Duty Ring & Track

HDRT combines the flexibility and function of the PRT Ring Slide and Track system with the size and strength of the HDS product line to support loads of up to 40kN (8,992 pounds).

Bishop-Wisecarver Hepcomotion DTS - Driven Track System

DTS utilizes oval and rectangular track systems and provides actuation by means of a high tensile strength timing belt. Motion may either be continuous or intermittent to fit customer needs. Carriages are often fixed to the timing belt at equal pitch lengths, and in the event that a carriage’s path is impeded, it will disengage from the drive. DTS may also be mounted to high strength aluminum beams. These DTS positioning table systems are fully compatible with extrusion framing. Other accessories and options include AC geared motors, IEC frame gearboxes, pulley bearing units, trip latches, and sensor mounting brackets.
