PBC Linear Quick Response With Efficient CAD Modeling

How does PBC Linear respond so quickly to customer demands for CAD models and drawings for linear bearings, guides, and large linear actuator assemblies?CAD Engineering

PBC Linear actuators are basically a length controlled product with parts suppressed and unsuppressed depending on what options are selected.  Everything in linear motion is controlled by some sort of equation or rule, as long as the design is a standard product which is fully developed. These equations or rules can be entered into Solidworks and Solidworks Excel Design Tables.

Parametric Features in Solidworks and Excel:

  • Solidworks/Excel Design Tables allow for efficient engineered CAD that can output prints, assemblies, and models in a matter of minutes.
  • The design table is Excel based, which allows for the use of drop down boxes, formulas for restricting input, and a user friendly part numbering system like those implemented by PBC Linear.
  • Solidworks allows formulas that can control the number of spaced tapped holes, features that are patterned, features extruded to a certain dimension, etc.

The Benefits of Designing Parametric Assemblies:

  • Engineering design time is cut by thousands of hours per year, resulting in significant cost savings and fast response to customer needs.
  • Prints are expedited to the shop more quickly, shortening customer lead time.
  • Both customer and manufacturer benefit!

Excel and Solidworks are powerful tools which are rapidly becoming engineering necessities.

The end result of implementing these technologies is that PBC Linear can quickly respond to customer needs for CAD support on a wide range of linear motion solutions.
