Heason Technology at DSEI 2019

After a successful show in 2017, Heason Technology returned to DSEI with a full line-up of motion components appropriate for the security, defence and aerospace industries.

This year we had the pleasure of co-hosting the stand with our distribution partner Spinea, the Slovakian designer and manufacturer of high-precision, zero-backlash reduction gears and rotary actuators. 

Situated in South Hall on Stand S3-102, visitors to the Heason stand could see a selection of precision mechanics, motion controls and software motion components from our distribution partners including: 



As well as showcasing products, the centrepiece of the show was our custom-built EtherCAT Controlled 6DoF Hexapod, where many visitors took the chance to complete our ‘maze’, a new addition to the Hexapod from the Engineering Design Show last year.

Ash Chury, UK & EU Sales Manager, comments: "Best show to date! Great to meet up with our existing clients and to meet new customers. It’s been great to have the support from our supplier Spinea."

Eve Hanford, Sales Desk Administrator, also comments: "We’ve had a great time at DSEI this year. It’s been good to see our customers and suppliers, as well as helping the sales team with new business!"

For further detailed technical information, take a look at our show preview ‘Heason Technology at DSEI 2019’ which explains more.

What is the EtherCAT Controlled Hexapod?

The Hexapod uses components from our key motion partners; Thomson precision linear actuators driven by Kollmorgen brushless AC synchronous motors. The Hexapod is controlled via Elmo motion controller with EtherCAT linked Elmo DC servo drives. Find out more about the Hexapod in our press release.
