Finding the right motion product for any automation project just got easier with Bishop-Wisecarver’s Product Selector tool located on the home page of our newly designed website or on its own page here.
Customers easily and quickly answer 5 short questions and the Product Selector tool provides a list of products that match their stated requirements. The list includes each product’s image, description and links to additional info. The entire process takes less than 2 minutes, saving customers valuable time and giving them confidence in researching the best product for their individual needs.
The 5 questions to be answered are:
1. Do you need a curved product?
Bishop-Wisecarver offers linear products, rotary products and curvilinear products (those that have both curved and straight segments).
2. Do you need a driven product?
Bishop-Wisecarver offers components and guides that rely on manual movement or on a customer’s own drive system to provide movement. We also provide driven products; some are actuators, others are guides that have a drive option.
3. What is your approximate load need?
Bishop-Wisecarver products can handle from 0 to 132 kN (29,675 lbf) on their own, which solves a wide range of needs including the most heavy duty capability.
4. What are your material requirements?
Customers can choose from four different types of materials: stainless steel, carbon steel, aluminum or polymer. We provide multiple options as customer applications might require materials that are corrosion resistant, best for food safety or meet certain regulatory requirements.
5. What are your environmental factors?
Our company is the leader in manufacturing motion products that are built to last in extreme and harsh environments and critical conditions. These include excessive cold or heat, high speed or very long length applications, washdown or corrosive applications, vacuum/cleanroom, food-grade, high debris and more.
The Product Selector results don’t have just one answer, but instead provide a narrowed down list of options that make it easier to review the wide range of solutions offered by Bishop-Wisecarver. Bishop-Wisecarver application engineers are always available - and eager! - to help customers determine the multiple approaches they could take to solve their toughest automation challenges. Offering the Product Selector tool is a valuable first step in proving our Signature Experience commitment to customers.
