At Tactical CNC, we build our systems with the highest quality components available because we want our systems to stand the test of time and regular use.  Everything from large components to small are the best of the best, including the bearings used which are Bishop Wisecarver’ patented Dual Vee™ bearings on the X and Y axis.  These bearings are proven to offer smooth and friction free movement in industrial applications, making them an ideal choice.  Bishop-Wisecarver Group (BWG) was started in 1950 and has continued to manufacture exceptional products for over 65 years, helping manufacturers and automation solution providers engineer linear and rotary motion products.

The Bishop Wisecarver’ patented Dual Vee™ bearings are used by various manufacturers assorted industries for good reason – they just work.  Bishop-Wisecarver Group provides an explanation of what DualVee is and why it works so well, “DualVee was designed as a problem solver for automotive, machine tool, paper processing, textile and general industrial automation applications where traditional guidance technologies were ineffective. DualVee Motion Technology has continued to evolve into the ideal solution for today’s cutting edge industries such as medical, packaging, aerospace, electronic and semiconductor. Bishop-Wisecarver invented the DualVee guide wheel and has been a world leader in guide wheel technology since 1970… Linear motion components, guides, slides and actuators find use in a variety of precision linear motion applications, from machine tools to medical equipment. Linear motion guides offer a wide variety of performance characteristics, with one of the most significant factors being the type of motion control technology employed. The two most common types of linear motion technology are plain bearing and rolling element. Rolling element-based linear guide can be further categorized as either re-circulating element or guide wheel.”  And BWG further elaborates on the smooth motion even in harsh environments, such as metal fabrication shops, “DualVee Motion Technology® (double row angular contact bearing) is designed for use in dirty and extreme environments. The once patented 90º vee edge guide wheel design creates a velocity gradient due to the range of contact diameters of the wheel. With the inner diameter traveling at a lower velocity than the outer, debris is naturally drawn outward. This velocity gradient causes a constant sweeping action, thus cleaning debris from the track. DualVee guide wheels feature a constant radius ball bearing path, which minimizes vibration resulting in smooth running systems. The ground surface finish and induction heat treating of the wheels stainless and carbon steel components ensure a long lasting system. Composite polymer wheeled systems are also available for even quieter smooth motion systems.”  Bishop-Wisecarverpatented Dual Vee™ bearings help our CNC plasma cutting systems run more smoothly which results in a better cut for you, ensuring higher productivity and reduced material waste.
