Hepco V based linear rail systems have been a popular choice in the Film and Television industries for many years, specifically in the production of special effects. The need to move cameras into position or move models on a screen set in various directions requires ultimate smoothness and, above all, quietness.
The low friction characteristics of Hepco V groove bearings coupled with the ability for the system to be configured in a variety of ways provides designers with many solutions. Moving through curves, straight lines, straight lines and curves together or with 1-Trak, the possibility to track any conceivable 2 dimensional shape. Next time you see a film and wonder how they produced that effect there is a high chance that Hepco V based linear motion systems were involved.
