Product Details

UtiliTrak is available in four series based upon the guide wheel material:

PW Series includes polymer guide wheels running on an anodized aluminum linear track channel designed to provide a more economical choice for lighter duty applications where highly smooth operation is not as critical.

NOW AVAILABLE! VC Series includes versatile carbon steel guide wheels designed to reduce time and cost associated with installation of into the hardened carbon steel track.

SW Series includes carbon steel guide wheels running on a hardened bearing grade carbon steel linear track channel for larger loads and smooth operation.

CR Series includes stainless steel guide wheels that run on a linear track channel which is a composite of stainless steel linear track and anodized aluminum base material, and is ideal for medium loads where corrosion resistance is required.

PW Series

Polymer Wheel Series UtiliTrak is a lightweight solution for light to medium duty transport applications, and offers the lowest installed cost in its class, corrosion resistance, low noise, and wear resistance.

  • Linear track channel is anodized 6063-T6 aluminum alloy
  • Wheels feature chemically resistant high temp polymer overmoulded on a stainless steel bearing
  • Built-in wiper caps at each end of the wheel plate clear debris from the track
  • Loads to 311N
  • Speeds to 1.5 m/s
  • Acceleration to 3 g's
  • 3, 4 and 5-wheel plate assemblies available
  • Available in sizes 0, 1, and 2

Wheel Plate Assemblies

The two outside guide wheels are concentric, while the center wheel(s) are eccentric. Fit up is pre-set at the factory, but is easily adjusted by rotating the eccentrically mounted center guide wheels. This allows modification of running characteristics such as drag, breakaway force and running friction.

Each assembly includes a standard lubricator, which distributes a light coat of oil along the length of the channel during normal operation. Lubrication of the channel increases load, life and speed capacities.

Bridge Connections

Two types of bridge connection are available. The steel version is available in a variety of widths, and features mounting holes according to customer specifications. The aluminum version features MCS profile extrusions with T-slots for ease of mounting.

Hybrid Actuator Design Packaging Machinery

HYBRID ACTUATOR DESIGN

Custom Designed Actuator Provides Increased Stability for Heavy Loads

THE CHALLENGE:

To orient the products from the conveyor into finished bundles, the TPA was equipped with an overhead rotary end-of-arm mechanism that can shift in weight and speed based on need. However, this end-of-arm would become unstable and wobble at high speeds and heavier weights.

Bishop-Wisecarver Products Defeat Debris in CNC Machines

THE CHALLENGE:

A manufacturer of desktop analyzers required a compact and reliable method of positioning and scanning the testing kit trays. The trays extend to provide easy access for the user to add samples to the reagent kits, then get drawn into the analyzer during operation. The reagent kits are scanned using a moving scanner head, which also required guided motion.
