Double Product Feature: Paper Towel Transfer Unit & Spool Handling Unit

DOUBLE FEATURE Too much of a good thing is a very good thing, and in today's application spotlight, we're featuring two HepcoMotion products back-to-back. Check out how two different products were used for motion without limits.

Twin back-to-back oval tracks have carriages joined with support rollers, with connecting links for driving, that move paper towels from one place to another. This assembly combines the PRT2 (precision ring and track) and DTS (driven track system) product lines.

The durability and strength of HDLS (heavy duty driven linear system) lies in its capabilities. The beauty of HDLS is that it utilizes heavy duty slides and actuates them by AT series belt. Both the narrow unit and the wide HDLS units feature left, right, and dual
output shafts, and gear boxes may be supplied directly coupled to units. Extended output shafts on gear boxes are also possible to drive two systems in parallel.

Optional shock absorbers and rubber buffers are available for HDLS systems. In this application example the gripper holds a spool of kevlar fiber tape during the production of high performance composite storage tanks. The spool gripper rotates on a ring and moves on the HDLS unit.
