Vote for PBC Linear as your Design world Leader in Engineering

PBC Linear - 2009 Design World Leadership AwardWe are halfway through the year and Design World’s Leadership in Engineering campaign is starting to heat up. For motion control, PBC Linear has returned to win for the second consecutive year. We are linear motion solution providers and dedicate ourselves to ensuring customers receive the best in world class components, sophisticated single-axis sub-assemblies and fully optimized multi-axis solutions.

PBC Linear has spent much of 2010 testing our knowledge and creating innovative solutions that cater to both broad and specific customer needs. We also devoted our attention to serving the market as reliable experts in all things linear motion. Finally, we launched a new website designed around the specific needs of the engineer to facilitate easy access to all materials in a fresh new look.

Some recent applications this year include a simplified solution to mobile flat-screen TV mounts in homes and commercial buildings using Integral-V™ Technology (IVT). Trak-Kit, the design firm responsible for the mounting system, worked hand-in-hand with PBC to improve their mounting assembly by using IVT to ensure smooth guidance under extended moment loads. IVT helped to significantly reduce the number of assembly components, improved alignment and enhanced performance. Another company used PBC Linear’s engineering expertise to create a customized bearing solution that reduced part count from 6 pieces to 1 piece—drastically decreasing the products assembly time.

We also utilized our engineering expertise to create a new campaign of informative technical videos, whitepapers and webinars to pass our knowledge along to the customer in order to hep them make the best choices in linear motion design possible. Recent issues we have tackled are: 2:1 ratio, pre-load adjustment, where and when to use particular linear guide technologies, and full cost comparisons of IVT vs. competitors.

For those who have not yet visited our company website, we recently launched a new, more user-friendly design. Made for engineers, by engineers, the new design grants easier access to CAD files, product information and literature/video downloads. Plus the new website features boosted content for all PBC products. Stay tuned, new web developments will continue happening throughout the year.

Another new introduction for this year is the upcoming release of the Low Profile Uni-Guide linear slide. This compact solution embodies the same performance advantages of the already established Uni-Guide in a 24 mm footprint: allowing the slide to provide long-lasting positioning and transfer in confinded, hard-to-reach areas.

As the year draws to a close, PBC Linear will continue to be a driving force for innovation and new linear motion solutions. To vote for your Leader in Engineering, register by visiting!
