Application Description: The very compact piezoelectric thereapy head is mounted on a 110 degree ring segment. It is moved manually and weighs approximately 20kg.
Solution: Since stainless steel is the preferred material for such an application, a Hepco Ring segment ground all over provided good load carrying capacity and a high level of corrosion resistance. The ring segment also had the required precision to enable the exact location of the kidney or gall stone to be attacked without affecting the surrounding tissue. Because the vee bearing technology has low friction characteristics and allows applications to operate without lubrication, the therapy machine can run dry avoiding possible contamination.
Products Used: HepcoMotion precision ring segment
