New factory will produce aluminium frame system

21 June, 2013

The linear motion specialist HepcoMotion has set up a separate factory to manufacture its MCS aluminium frame and machine construction system. It says that it needs the new facility, located next to its main production site for linear motion products in Tiverton, Devon, to keep up with demand for the MCS range from the UK and abroad.

One of the products that will be manufactured at the new site is the RapiLok profile connector that creates rigid, right-angled joints in seconds. The system, launched last year, avoids the need to cross-drill profiles and only one profile needs to be tapped, avoiding the need for additional components.
