PBC+MOONS' at SPS—Nuremburg, Germany
PBC+MOONS' Joint Venture

PBC Linear recently attended SPS IPC Drives 2015 Trade Fair in Nuremburg, Germany, as a part of the MOONS Industries booth. At the show, PBC MOONS joint venture showed complete mechatronic linear motion systems and smart robot modules.  Included in the booth were PBC Linear®’s Mechatronics Enabled products, SIMO® Series and Compact Series linear systems, which were paired with the world class stepper, smart stepper, and smart-servo motors of MOONS. 

The SIMO Series linear motion platform offers a range of bearing options including plain, ball, or roller combined with drive options such as lead screw and belts to provide a versatile solution across a spectrum of applications.  The Compact Series is suited for smaller geometries and also offers bearing options of plain and ball bearing, combined with a choice of lead screw or ball screw drive mechanisms.

Both NEMA 17 and 23 sized MOONS motors with a variety of options are utilized.  Open loop stepper motors can be used for basic applications, while upgrading to a smart stepper provides onboard control and Ethernet connectivity.  A step-servo can also be used providing greater performance with a 20,000 count encoder built in.  All of these options can be integrated directly to a lead screw, eliminating the coupler resulting in a rigid, precise system; or connected by a traditional coupler for belt driven systems.
