Why DualVee Technology?

Bishop-Wisecarver is recognized as the market leader for guide wheel technology. In 1967, Bud Wisecarver patented the DualVee Guide Wheel and started designing product based upon DualVee Motion Technology® (DMT). Three main components define DMT; the DualVee Guide Wheel, mating Vee profile track with patented mounting shoulder, and support bushings. DualVee Motion Technology is one of the most popular guided motion products due to its self cleaning action and self aligning track (mounting shoulder), resulting in an overall lower installation cost.
