NEW PBC Linear Patent Published!

September 03, 2014 - Rockford, IL  -  Posted by PBC News

Swage PatentPBC Linear is proud to announce the publication of Patent Number US2014/0150239-A1 for the swaging process and the method developed for manufacturing embedded raceways.  This process ensures the pre-engineered alignment of parallel rails while guaranteeing the security of the hardened steel raceways throughout the life of the unit. 

The process combines aluminum and steel to create a lightweight, precise, and durable solution for longer rails.  All of the critical edges of the rails are cut using the SIMO process, making them more rigid, accurate, and repeatable.  This pre-engineered alignment lowers the cost of components, which in turn lowers the cost of assembly time and overall installation cost. 

This patented process is used in multiple different PBC Linear technologies, including:

  • SIMO Series: V-Guide Bearings
  • Linear Actuator Technology (LAT): Ball Screw Driven Linear Actuator
  • Cam Roller Technology (CRT): Redi-Rail
  • Integral-V Technology (IVT)

Components using this process are great linear guides for any application that requires repeatability, accuracy, and rigidity.  With PBC Linear's wide range of products utilizing this process in manufacturing, the possibilities are endless.  Contact one of our Application Engineers to get started!
