PBC Linear utilizes a variety of PRT technology within our complete Linear Actuator products, including:

  • MTB, SIMO, Compact Series, MUK, ML, and MT

PRT can be an excellent choice of applications that require high rigidity and/or high accuracy.  In many applications when specified PRT is not the only technology that would work and in some cases, can lead to problems.
