New Linear Actuators available from PBC Linear

PBC Linear Actuator Series

Pacific Bearing Company is pleased to announce its brand new line of linear actuators. With the reputation for providing the most innovative solutions to the most difficult applications, PBC has recently introduced the PL, MT, and MX series linear actuators. While each of these series of actuators has their own strengths, all of them provide reliable, long-lasting service and will help save on production time and cost.

Increase Accuracy and Decrease Cost with the PL Series

The PL series’ simple, precision machined aluminum design allows for both easy installation in various applications and long lasting durability. Its machined profile allows for flushed mounting on both sides and the base for ease of installation. The magnetic seal allows for the system to function from the grungiest environments—food and beverage—to the most clean—medical and pharmaceutical. Also, by eliminating the belt drive gear boxes required by similar actuators, the PL series has a lower overall system cost. With its pre-loaded ball bearing rollers guided by the patent pending Integral V hardened steel raceways; the PL series creates the perfect solution for smooth and quiet precision guidance.

So Versatile, You’ll Think It Can Do Anything—MT Series

The MT series actuator provides the most options for the most applications, even horizontal and vertical applications.  This system also provides a longer stroke length; which is a must for applications that require greater distance between tasks. Magnetically sealed to keep contaminants out, the MT series is an obvious candidate for working in the dingiest environments, but it is also excellent in working in clean-room, laboratory and other medical surroundings. 

The Maximum Load Actuator—MX Series

A heavy-duty system, the MX Series features large CAM rollers to carry high loads at greater speeds. With rollers positioned on the exterior of the running surface, a greater moment load capacity is achieved. These features allow for lower production costs on the heaviest of system applications. The MX series also has a long stroke length in order to accommodate tasks that require movement over a further distance. With fast delivery and a full team of Engineers to aid with technical assistance, the MX Series is a great choice for your high load needs.
