Bishop-Wisecarver engineering and manufacturing of linear & rotary motion solutions, custom complex assemblies, and embedded intelligence systems.

Manual Linear Guide Systems

Bishop-W`isecarver, together with our partner HepcoMotion, offers the widest range of guide wheel-based linear motion solutions in the world. Our linear guide products are available in several sizes to accommodate loads of all types, from light to heavy. Our linear guide product offering is suitable for use in numerous applications, such as machine designs requiring incorporation of linear guide products into the machine structure. We also offer motor mounts for our linear guide products for applications that require a separate drive unit. Carbon, stainless steel, and polymer versions are available to suit any application environment.

Simple Select provides customers with an easy ready-to-mount linear guide based on HepcoMotion's popular GV3 slide system. Simple Select linear guides are available in sizes from 20mm to 76mm to accomodate loads from 685 to 10,000 N.

The UtiliTrak linear guide is a narrow, compact profile solution that is ideal for using two parallel systems, where the vee side serves as the motion guide and the roller side compensates for misalignment. UtiliTrak is available in SW Series steel, PW Series polymer with aluminum channel or CR Series composite stainless steel where a corrosion resistant linear guide is required.

For high load applications, choose the HDS2 linear guide product line. Or for a completely stainless steel linear guide, select the SL2. MinVee offers a miniature linear guide that is ideally suited for semiconductor, laboratory, medical and packaging applications. LoPro is available in both actuated and non-actuated linear guide versions and DualVee and GV3 offer guided motion componentry to suit a wide range of linear guide applications.

  • QuickTrak® – Modular Linear Guides

    SKU: QuickTrak
    QuickTrak® is a family of modular linear guide components and sub-assemblies utilizing DualVee Motion Technology®. The design helps manufacturers and automation solution providers assemble machines with motion guidance systems faster and easier with its T-nut and T-slot based kit of parts. The QuickTrak system can be customized without additional machining, and mounted with standard T-nuts onto extrusions, resulting in 70% less downtime, and substantially reduced total cost of ownership.

  • UtiliTrak® – Compact Linear Guide

    SKU: UtiliTrak
    UtiliTrak is an ideal choice for running two systems in parallel, where one slide uses DualVee guide wheels and the other uses MadeWell® crowned rollers. Because precise parallelism is difficult to achieve, it is not uncommon for mounting surfaces to be slightly out of parallel. UtiliTrak's design compensates for mounting errors, and does not require absolute parallelism for accurate operation. The DualVee guide wheel carriage assembly and vee channel serves as the motion side, while the MadeWell crowned roller and open channel side allows for parallel misalignment.
