Pittsburg, CA – – Bishop-Wisecarver Corporation announced the availability of its new QuickTrak series clamp extrusion, a quick and economical way to accurately mount its widely recognized DualVee track – in a fraction of the time required by existing methods.
This latest addition to the company‚â€™s product line is designed to fit the leading 40mm series structural aluminum extrusions. QuickTrak requires no track drilling or fasteners, resulting in a low-cost installation. The unique design creates a solid interface between the beam, clamp and DualVee track, retaining the components in a state of compression, which significantly increases joint rigidity.
The initial offering is designed for the company‚â€™s size 3 DualVee track, but will soon be followed by additional sizes and variations. Notably, due to the 90 degree vee design, smaller size DualVee wheels can also run on the size 3 track. DualVee track is available in carbon and stainless steel, hardened or unhardened, and in single lengths up to 22 feet. Plating options are also available.
Bishop-Wisecarver is willing to design custom QuickTrak/DualVee configurations to suit individual application needs. ‚â€œWe continuously endeavor to anticipate and fulfill our customers‚â€™ changing needs through ongoing development and expansion of our proven DualVee line,‚â€ says Pamela Kan, President of Bishop-Wisecarver. ‚â€œQuickTrak continues our 40-year history of customer-driven innovation, providing an ideal value added option for quick DualVee track integration.‚â€
The company will showcase QuickTrak at IWF in Atlanta, August 2008, and IMTS in Chicago, September 2008.
