PBC Linear began in 1983 as Pacific Bearing Company, creating a patented and innovative solution to the common problem of failing linear ball bearings. Since then, we have greatly expanded our technology, expertise and services into a complete linear motion manufacturer. We specialize in providing our customers with everything from out-of-the-box components, to mechanical sub-assemblies, and even complete linear systems.
We channel our wide product knowledge and engineering expertise into all aspects of the manufacturing products; such as our newly designed SIMO™ machine (Simultaneous Integral Milling Operation). The SIMO™ process is the solution to aluminum extrusion inaccuracy. Each piece of aluminum extrusions has a natural bow, twist and camber which require a lengthy machining and alignment process for accuracy; however this traditional method is costly and not fully effective.
The SIMO™ process uses synchronized cutters to concurrently mill all critical edges of an aluminum extrusion in one quick pass. This creates a piece of extrusion that is accurate, straight and consistent on all sides. The entire machining process—which used to take hours—now takes minutes! This allows PBC Linear to provide our customers with incredibly accurate length products at little to no extra cost.
PBC Linear now offers its linear motion components completely assembled in pre-engineered Systems, Slides and Stages. We also offer ball screw, lead screw, and belt drives, in addition to linear motors, and cylinders. Catalog systems are available in a few days and custom systems are also available quickly. Check us out for these timesaving, low cost alternatives.
At PBC Linear, we use our skilled staff, sophisticated tools, and innovative products to create long lasting solutions for your application. Our carefully designed and refined products have been strategically planned to solve the toughest problems in linear motion.
