Easy Does it with Bishop-Wisecarver's New PW Series Utilitrak® Linear Guide
Ideal for Applications Where Low Cost and Easy Installation are Key
Pittsburg, CA - - June 8, 2006 - - Today, Bishop-Wisecarver Corporation announced its new UtiliTrak PW Series Linear Guide, an economical way to add light duty linear motion to your manufacturing applications.
This latest addition to the company's product line features high reliability with smooth, antifriction operation, all within a sleek, compact design. UtiliTrak is easy to install and eliminates the need for expensive, steel units in applications where low cost is a key objective. Its low-friction polymer wheels feature a high-grade synthetic lubricant and stainless steel studs. Chemical-resistant polymer allows UtiliTrak's wheels to withstand harsh environments, making it an ideal solution for a wide range of industries.
The precision-engineered PW Series UtiliTrak was created with efficiency - and convenience - in mind. Its polymer overmolded wheels carry loads up to 311N, and travel up to 1.5 meters per second. Eccentric and concentric studs allow customers to vary preload to a desired amount. Large thread diameters accommodate high installation torques, ensuring the wheels keep their adjusted preload value despite vibration.
Track is sold V-style for polymer DualVee® and U-style for MadeWell(TM) crowned rollers. Track is made of sturdy, anodized aluminum and is sold in lengths up to 12 feet, which can be easily joined for longer length applications.
Wheel plates are built to last. They come in 3, 4 and 5-wheel configurations, and are available in sizes 0, 1 and 2 for both DualVee polymer wheels and polymer MadeWell crowned rollers. Wheel plates contain built-in lubricator wiper caps at both ends, which clear debris and lubricate the track surface.
