Linear Actuators Technology
Soon to Be Released: The Compact Series Linear Guide System from PBC Linear is designed to provide smooth, accurate, and repeatable linear motion in tight spaces. The Compact Series boasts a low profile—23 mm—standard system height making it an ideal solution for applications such as lab automation, medical, automated delivery systems, dispensing robotics, and electronic board manufacturing.
The Compact Series (CS) can be configured—with standard options—to adapt to the demands of the application. Options include: two bearing choices, gliding surface technology or profile rail technology; lead screw with multiple leads; standard fixed or Constant Force™ anti-backlash nut; manual drive; integrated stepper or smart motor; and a motor mount option for use with other motors.
- Bearing options: Gliding Surface Technology provides smooth and quiet operation. This choice is low cost, self-lubricating, and maintenance free. Profile Rail Technology provides rigid performance and is ideal for applications that require high loads or precise positional accuracy.
- Lead Screw: 6 mm and 10 mm diameter lead screw is available in 1, 2, 5, and 10 mm leads.
- Nut: Standard fixed or Constant Force™ anti-backlash nut.
- Motor: Integrated NEMA 17 or NEMA 23 stepper motors; single, double, or triple stack; motor mount option for attaching stepper, servo, or smart motor, etc. Option with a manual hand knob is also available.
The Compact Series is a natural addition to the existing Linear Actuator Technology (LAT). LAT offers a broad range of mechatronics solutions for small, medium, large, and extra-large applications. Choose from belt, ball-screw, lead screw or un-driven systems complete with a number of mounting and performance accessories. Require a multi-axis solution? PBC Linear will work with your design team to create a sophisticated assembly that simplifies processes, improves performance and saves on cost.
