* PBC Linear engineers analyzing every subtle detail of this application
- State-of-the-art 3D modeling software
- SolidWorks® Design Platform and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) ensures easy specification interface
- Design control processes based on the highest industry standards
* Technical data, downloadable 3D CAD
Models, and product bios are all at the fingertips of the customer with PART Community.
The engineering staff at PBC Linear begins the design process by offering their customers downloadable
CAD material and a library of technical data through PART Community—a web-based 3D CAD viewing program.
* SolidWorks® exploded-view model for PLA Linear Actuator, showing
off all of the individual parts that provide the high precision linear motion the PLA is known for.
As the design process progresses, PBC Linear engineers use customer specifications to formulate
a solution for the proposed application using SolidWorks® to create a 3D representation of the application.
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software is used to further refine s the design. Simulations are used to investigate the effects
of static and dynamic loading, impact, vibration, heat transfer, and dimensional tolerances—showcasing where the “hot spots”
of stress will be for each feasible strain on the system. The software also exaggerates the strain to give engineers a clear
picture of how each external factor affects all parts of the application.
* FEA software highlighting stress “hotspots of a newly developed
actuator, red signifies where the highest levels of strain will be on the system.
In the final step of the design process, the end-product is created, subjected to in-depth performance
and metallurgical analysis right in-house to ascertain limits on temperature, load, speed, and stress.
