SEALED BELT DRIVE
Bishop-Wisecarver Corp. has announced the HepcoMotion SBD sealed belt. A stainless steel band runs across the length of the beam, which is held in place by a magnetic strip. The band and strip effectively enclose the linear motion system, minimizing the entrance of dirt and debris. The product is offered in standard and clean room configurations, in 80 and 100 mm beam widths, and in single beam lengths to 6 m. Longer beam units may be created by joining.
