Bishop-Wisecarver has introduced the HepcoMotion PDU2M profile belt-driven unit, a high-capacity version of its PDU2. This unit incorporates a carriage that contains four extra rollers on each side in order to withstand increased moment forces. Suitable for demanding single-axis systems and multi-axis applications, the PDU2M delivers a 50% higher load capacity, a 200% increase in moment load capacity and a 1,000% improvement in moment load stiffness compared to the standard PDU2. The device comprises a rigid yet lightweight aluminum slotted profile fitted with a toothed belt drive and carriage, which effectively encloses the unit. Rated for operating speeds up to 6 m/s and loads up to 750 N, the 20AT3 belt allows driving forces up to 280 N.
