About

Bishop-Wisecarver Corp., Components


Since 1970 Bishop-Wisecarver has been a world leader in guide wheel technology, inventing the DualVee guide wheel as a problem solver for automotive, machine tool, paper processing, textile, and general industrial automation applications where traditional guidance technologies were ineffective.

This linear slide technology integrates three main components: the DualVee guide wheel, its DualVee mating track with patented mounting shoulder, and the DualVee support bushing. DualVee Motion Technology (DMT) continues to evolve into the ideal technology for today's cutting edge industries: Medical, Packaging, Aerospace, Electronics, and Semiconductor.

Our product line includes quality made components and accessories, manual linear guide systems, actuated linear guide systems, and rotary guides and systems. Our more popular product offerings include the following trade names - DualVee, LoPro, UtiliTrak, and GV3. Stainless steel, high temperature, and clean room compatible products are among Bishop-Wisecarver's more recent product introductions, but new product development continues to be an ongoing process at the Bishop-Wisecarver Corporation, with innovative designs being introduced at regular intervals.
