Introducing the SIMO® Series Linear Motion Platform 

Putting Real Flexibility into Linear Slide Design

SIMO Series Group of 4



PBC Linear® is pleased to introduce the new SIMO® Series Linear Motion Platform.  The SIMO Series is a family of linear motion solutions designed to put flexibility into the Design Engineer’s hands.  The options begin with a choice of rail heights; low profile for tight spaces or a tall version for greater structural integrity.  Each of these aluminum rails is qualified through the patent pending SIMO process where machined accuracies at extrusion prices are achieved.  With 3 tribology choices, 3 drive choices, and multiple assembly options that are all interchangeable within the same dimensional geometry, the SIMO Series Linear Motion Platform can be configured and optimized for a single axis, or combined to create a multi-axis XYZ system.  The tribology choices available are the self-lubricating FrelonGOLD® plain bearings which are ideally suited for contaminated environments, V-wheel roller bearings for high speed applications, and profile rail linear guideways with recirculating ball bearings for rigidity and precision.  Any of these bearing options can be driven by a choice of lead screw with machined nut or anti-backlash nut, ball screw, or two versions of belt drives.  This versatility to mix-n-match within the same design envelope allows an engineer to test multiple configurations, and gives them the ability to easily adapt to changing requirements dependent on load, speed, accuracy, environment, and life considerations.
