PBC Linear: Linear Motion Solutions Redefined

October 14, 2009 - Rockford, IL  -  Posted by Zach Olson

The New Pacific Bearing 

A little over a year ago, Pacific Bearing Company enhanced its name to PBC Linear to better communicate our services to our customers. Since CEO Bob Schroeder established PBC in 1983, PBC Linear has taken his vision to new heights by not only manufactures high-performance components, but well-designed mechanical sub-assemblies and complete, problem-solving linear motion solutions.

Simplicity Linear Bearings since 1985PBC Linear carved out its reputation for solving the toughest linear motion problems with the invention of the self-lubricating Simplicity® linear plane bearing. Developed as a solution to common environmental obstacles that cause linear ball bearings to bind, stall, and fail, the Simplicity® bearing provided long-lasting smooth and quiet linear motion in extreme temperatures, vibration, contamination and dirt. As our company expanded, we have carried on the tradition of providing inventive components, sub-assemblies and full solutions to a wide range of industries worldwide.

PBC Simo
 ProcessThough PBC Linear is a global linear motion company, we manufacture all of our long-lasting products at our 150,000 ft² facility in Roscoe, IL to ensure quality and performance. We combine our engineering ingenuity with our manufacturing prowess to provide a strategic manufacturing and assembly line that allows our products to sustain consistent, competitive advantages. An example of this is our patent pending SIMO™ (Simultaneous Integral Milling Operation) process. By consistently milling all critical edges of an aluminum extrusion in one pass, the SIMO™ process assures simple, high accuracy mounting and elimination of the aligning and post-machining process. This allows our products to be more durable, precise and lightweight. It also gives our customers high accuracy extrusions at little to no added cost.

Offering a complete and sophisticated line of linear motion products; such as bearings, linear guides, tables, slides and actuators; PBC Linear is the customer-centric source for linear motion. We are a company founded by engineers, for engineers, and staff a full team able to guide our customers in every facet of linear motion from concept to production.

Looking ahead to 2010, PBC Linear will continue to be
a driving force for innovation in linear motion around the globe.
