PBC Linear has focused on eco-friendly
motion solutions since the introduction of the self-lubricating
Simplicity™ linear bearing in the 1980’s. Now a fight against pollution
and unnecessary waste has driven the development of a “Green Committee”,
putting new recycling plans into action.
While other companies are designing
products that use less grease and oil, PBC Linear has refined their
self-lubricating, no oil design through the enhancement of our Frelon
liner®. Frelon has proven to be an effective and environmentally safe
product for over two decades. Uni-guide, Modular Guide, MRS Sigma® are
all examples of new products that self-lubricate and have no need for
additional oil or grease.
PBC Linear is recycling a wide range of
waste products; such as paper, cardboard, steel and aluminum scrap
metal, and wood. In addition, PBC Linear has always integrated safe and
non-toxic ways of cleaning and disposing of their materials; making sure
that all of the necessary, responsible, steps for a safe
environment—both in and out of the workplace are in place.
In order to continue to be part of the
solution, PBC Linear has begun a more aggressive recycling program
through the establishment of the “Green Committee.” The primary goal is
to investigate more solutions to fight against pollution and conserve
energy in the future.
