Engineering Services by Leslie Lui Mechanical Design Engineer

Bishop-Wisecarver's applications engineers field many calls every day to answer technical questions and offer advice to customers who are in search of the best solutions for their linear motion applications. Bishop-Wisecarver invented the ground-breaking DualVee Motion Technology® more than 38 years ago and offers the widest range of standard linear guide wheel components, such as 6 sizes of DualVee® wheels, 5 sizes of track, and associated hardware. Alternatively, Bishop-Wisecarver can provide short runs of “custom” wheels engineered to customer requirements, such as special greases for specific applications. For example, our low temperature wheel is rated for use down to -94°F (-70°C) and is ideal for refrigeration and sub-zero climate applications while our high temperature wheel is rated up to +500°F (+260°C) to meet the demands of welding, plasma cutting and baking applications. Many other options are available; contact us to find out more.

More complex solutions may include a full customization of one of Bishop-Wisecarver’s linear actuator or guide systems. Our LoPro® systems are available undriven or in belt, chain, lead or ball screw drive configurations and easily withstand aggressive operational environments. All system features are customizable, including length - driven actuator systems up to 25m in length have been supplied while un-driven slide systems can have unlimited lengths.

Bishop-Wisecarver’s technical resources include applications, mechanical, materials, and manufacturing engineers. Bishop-Wisecarver is equipped with the latest engineering tools, including computer aided design and computer aided engineering software, R&D test equipment, and inspection/measurement equipment. We partner with our customers to design new products that meet the exact needs of their specific applications. After the designs have been reviewed and approved by the customer, Bishop-Wisecarver can provide prototype samples fabricated from our state-of-the-art machine shop for verification by the customer or, by request, can perform in-house product qualification testing. Once accepted, our production capability can be scaled-up to meet large volume requirements.

Bishop-Wisecarver strives to exceed our customers’ expectations and to provide easy access to custom-engineered solutions. Bishop-Wisecarver’s engineering resources are flexible and can be quickly reallocated to ensure that our services, whether custom solutions or technical consultations, satisfy customer demand and meet on-time delivery.
