Food Industry applications can be particularly demanding on linear motion components. The need to wash down machines together with high production rates is a combination only the toughest systems can survive.
Specifying components that provide a long service life and a high level of corrosive resistance is a challenge. Hepco’s linear rail and guide systems meet careful material selection, innovative product design, together with high quality machining processes.
V guide linear motion systems perform particularly well in food industry machinery, the low maintenance durable qualities are certain to keep your running costs down.
