GST LogoPBC Linear’s Gliding Surface Technology (GST) catalog is now available for download.  The full color catalog offers detailed information on the GST family of products, including performance statistics, engineering drawings, and application examples.  Users also gain access to other useful tools such as quick e-mail links, links to product related informational videos, and free CAD downloads.

GST Catalog Cover

Gliding Surface Technology (GST) showcases plain bearing designs creating simple, two-piece configurations of rails and carriages with self-lubricating surfaces.  By utilizing plain bearing design, Gliding Surface Technology offers low profiles, compact sizes, and smooth, quiet linear motion.  Available options and a range of products provide unlimited design alternatives and configurations.  PBC Linear® manufactures Gliding Surface Technology to perform and withstand harsh environments.

  • Plain bearing design will not catastrophically fail
  • Vibration damping provides smooth and quiet linear motion
  • Pre-engineered – ready to use
  • Corrosion resistant
  • Light-weight aluminum construction
  • Long life without lubrication
  • Compact, space-saving solutions available
  • High loads and high shock resistant

PBC Linear’s core product competencies spread beyond Gliding Surface Technology (GST) with a wide array of components and complete mechatronics solutions.  Technologies include:

  • Round Shaft Technology (RST) utilizes precision round shafting as the guideway and linear plain bearings or linear ball bearings for movement.
  • Cam Roller Technology (CRT) uses PBC Linear precision straight rails and a multitude of different sliders to provide high accuracy and high speed linear guidance in an economical solution.
  • Integral-V Technology (IVT) provides a complete system built with or without structural support framework.  Hardened steel raceways are directly embedded into the rail to eliminate fasteners and reduce mounting components.
  • Profile Rail Technology (PRT) high performance ball-type linear guideways.

In addition to a broad range of components, PBC Linear offers a full lineup of mechatronics solutions, which is supported by a Joint Venture with Moons’ Industries, which was announced in late 2014. 

  • SIMO® Series (SIMO) is a family of solutions designed to put flexibility into the Design Engineer’s hands.  With choice of rail height, as well as bearing and drive-type options, the SIMO Series Linear Motion Platform can be configured to precisely fit any application.
  • Linear Actuator Technology (LAT) is the ideal choice for automated positioning, transfer and guidance.  Choose from belt, ball-screw, lead screw or un-driven systems complete with a number of mounting and performance accessories.

See PBC Linear’s full range of components and mechatronics solutions February 10-12, 2015 at ATX-West in Anaheim, CA at Booth #4583.  Be the first to see PBC Linear’s NEW Compact Series (CS) linear actuators at the show.  The CS product line satisfies an unmet sweet spot in small applications requiring smooth, accurate, and repeatable linear motion in tight spaces.  This is the ideal solution for applications such as lab automation, medical devices, automated delivery systems, dispensing robotics, and electronic board manufacturing.
