SIMO Series

PBC Linear® got some wide spread attention in conjunction with exhibitor, 3DP Unlimited™, at the International Consumer Electronics Show, held in Las Vegas, Nevada, the week of January 5, 2015. PBC Linear’s SIMO® Series linear actuators are utilized on 3DP Unlimited’s large format 3D printer, the 3DP1000—which was on live display throughout the show . The industrial strength SIMO Series actuators enable precision grade 3D printing over the large build area of 1 meter x 1 meter x 0.5 meter. The 3DP1000 boasts a low price tag—under $20,000—and is capable of printing layer resolutions down to 70 microns.


Large 3D Printed ChairThe robust SIMO Series actuators used on the 3DP1000 consist of double-row V-Guide roller bearings, with built in lubricators, riding on a hardened steel raceway. The rigid tall rail is used as a structural member and houses the lead screw with PBC Linear’s Constant Force anti-backlash nut for consistent performance. The NEMA 23 stepper motors from Applied Motion Products feature an integrated amplifier and 800 micro-stepping (as set at factory). Learn more about the SIMO Series Linear Motion Platform here.



The International Consumer Electronics Show featured over 55,000 exhibitors and welcomed over 180,000 attendees. 3DP Unlimited experienced extensive local and national media coverage including Fox Business News, USA Today, Chicago Tribune, and more.
