The Scientific Industry covers a wide range of equipment from mass spectrometry to optical test machines. The common requirement in the industry is precision linked to smooth and quiet operation, qualities that Hepco V bearings come with as standard.
Many of the applications we encounter need stainless steel systems to run without lubrication. Our V wiping principle takes care of this need and ensures associated equipment remains clean. The ability, with V groove bearings, to vary the frictional resistance of the system to meet drive torque requirements is an added benefit.
