Because production cables broke regularly when changing bobbins this resulted in major unforeseen production costs for the customer. He was looking for a buffer system that could maintain tension in the cable together with a quiet smooth movement. The buffer length needed to be over 24m long.
A solid belt driven unit which has been manufactured fully to the application requirements and comprising of the following components:
A 25 meter Heavy Duty Beam provided with our strong HD25 slides mounted with a robust belt driven carriage with 64 bearings and cap wipers.
A toothed belt that can withstand high pulling forces was included, together with a geared motor that could easily withstand the forces of more than 4900N.
Finally – as an extra security item, to avoid the breaking of cables – a seperate HepcoMotion powerslide cilinder HPS50/76 was mounted which can act as a shock absorber should an unexpected issue arise.
A HDLS Heavy Duty linear system of 25000mm long, with Ø64 bearing units and a 50mm wide belt, provided with rubber buffers. + geared motor.
A Powerslide cylinder HPS 50/76 with a stroke of 1000mm.
Because of the virtually maintenance free but robust concept of our HDLS unit the customer has a system that is fully customized, can easily withstand high pulling forces and which also works extremely smooth and shock-free. The breaking of cables when changing bobbins is a thing of the past and this customer is very satisfied.
