Inspection & Scanning

Bishop-Wisecarver products are the right motion systems for a variety of scanning and inspection applications across industries.

Laboratory/medical industry OEMs rely on Bishop-Wisecarver to deliver smooth and quiet motion, as well as corrosion resistance after sterilization.

In quality control applications, BW technology can smoothly and precisely traverse long lengths and curvatures.

Our guides, actuators, and complete automation systems supply reliable motion whether your equipment analyzes electronic assemblies or airplanes.


At the core of our systems and actuators is DualVee Motion Technology®. As vee wheels run on their matching track, the angled profiles wipe any debris out of the way. This self-cleaning action keeps the motion extremely smooth and running reliably.

  • Corrosion resistant options – complete solutions with stainless steel, anodized aluminum, and polymer-overmolded components
  • Vacuum-grade wheels ideal for lab, semiconductor, etc.
  • Miniature linear guides (MinVee®) provide smooth motion in a low profile

Bishop-Wisecarver has solutions that range from manually operated slides to precise, rigid actuators.

DualVee Track Inspection and Scanning


LoPro Gantry Kit Inspection and Scanning

Design your optimal motion path for both speed and footprint by using BW linear, rotary, or complex curved systems.

Our vee track comes in base lengths up to 22 ft (~6.7 m) and can be joined end-to-end to create long linear systems without the costs of precision machining.

Take the guesswork out of creating a gantry or multi-axis inspection system – simply connect LoPro® Linear Actuators with a Gantry Kit.

Designing rotary tables, long transfer circuits, and indexed stations is easy with HepcoMotion® Precision Ring and Track and Driven Track Systems.

Vee guide technology can even combine with linear motors to offer highly versatile, independently driven carriage transfer at high speeds.


Bishop-Wisecarver is proud to be the exclusive North American distributor of HepcoMotion® products since 1984.
