Bishop-Wisecarver Corp. Entries

  • ►  Motion Control • Motion Control Systems 

    For: Entry

    Systems that use some type of hydraulic pump, linear actuator or actuator to control position or velocity of other components.

    Bishop WiseCarver offers motion control systems including custom automation, rotary hexapods, conveyors, and more for harsh environments, can run at high temperatures, offer smooth motion, long lengths, and more.

  • ►  Motion Control • Actuators 

    For: Entry

    Mechanical devices that introduce motion. Types include pneumatic actuators, hydraulic actuators, linear actuators and piezoelectric actuators.

    The Bishop-Wisecarver DTS rotary actuator system utilizes oval and rectangular track systems with a high tensile strength timing belt for continuous or intermittent motion. Other DTS rotary actuator options include AC geared motors, IEC frame gearboxes, pully bearing units, trip latches, and sensor mounting brackets.

  • ►  Motion Control • Guides/Rails 

    For: Entry

    Rails and guides are used in a variety of motion control applications to guide moving parts in automated systems.

    Bishop Wisecarver manufactures manual linear guides in the following configurations: DualVee, LoPro, Simple Select, UtiliTrak, GV3, HDS2, SL2, MHD, MinVee, and HTS. DualVee linear guides can handle temperatures ranging from -94 to +500°F, and they have sawmill and clean room applications. These rugged rails come in original, original/studded, or washdown configurations.

  • ►  Motion Control • Actuators • Rotary Actuators 

    For: Entry

    Bishop-Wisecarver Corp. manufactures rotary actuator systems that utilize oval and rectangular track systems and provide actuation via high tensile strength timing belt. Rotary actuator options include: AC geared motors, IEC frame gearboxes, pully bearing units, trip latches, and sensor mounting brackets.


  • ►  Motion Control • Actuators • Heavy Duty Actuators 

    For: Entry

    Bishop-Wisecarver Corp. offers belt, chain, lead screw, and ball screw actuators. Model PSD ball screw actuators can handle thrust loads to 300N, high load capacities to 500N, speeds to 1m/s, and lead screws ranging from 4 to 70mm. These actuators are corrosion-resistant, easy to integrate, and ideal for assembly, pick, and place applications. They come in closed, open, non-driven, or double-acting formats. Model DAPDU2 double-acting belt units are available in forces up to 280N and lengths up to 6m.

  • ►  Bearings • Linear Bearings • Linear Ball Bearings
