Automated kiosks is a market which continues to foster heavy growth. This year, 775 billion dollars will be spent on adding new kiosks world wide! That is quite an expansion for a market that used to be reserved to candy bars and gum. Now, designers are employing more sophisticated techniques to ensure reliable retrieval and delivery for higher value items; such as MP3 players, DVD's and even prescriptions. As expected, motion control and positioning have a great effect on the cost, durability and life of the kiosk.
To address these needs, PBC Linear has added some new materials to our website in order to show our relevance within the kiosk space. From retail vending/retrieval systems to mass-media storage, PBC providesw a range of motion control solutions that can be scaled to fit any design platform.
