Simplicity Brand Technology Icon   Simplicity Frelon technology from PBC Linear

A trusted product line for over 25 years, Simplicity® self-lubricating technology has a well-established reputation for solving industries’ toughest linear motion problems. Simplicity began in 1985 when CEO Bob Schroeder created the first self-lubricating plane bearing. Composed of no rolling elements, the “little red bearing’s” simplistic design allowed it to thrive where the competition could not: dirty environments, extreme temperatures, heavy wash-down and high vibration. Thus, the Simplicity product line was born. Now available in a host of linear motion components—pillow block assemblies, flange mounts, precision bushings—and in ISO and Japanese metric sizes, Simplicity technology can be implemented into almost any application to improve performance, extend wear life and save on cost.

Linear Plain Bearings with Simplicity® Maintenance-free Liner

PBC Linear has combined Frelon material with precision bearing technology to create Simplicity® linear plain bearings. Simplicity self lubricating plain bearings can move in linear, oscillating, rotary, or any combination of motions at speeds exceeding 4 m/s (165 in/s). Designed to handle loads 20 times greater than linear ball bearings, they will not catastrophically fail.

  • Handles loads over 700 kN (157,000 lbs)
  • Wide temperature range:  -240° C/ 204° C (-400° F/ 400° F)
  • Low maintenance in contaminated environments
  • Size interchangeable drop-in replacement for linear ball bearings
  • Straight OD or optional crowned self-aligning OD
Only certified Simplicity® 60 Plus® Shafting provides maximum linear bearing performance. Download the brochure here.

 

Linear Plain Bearing Pillow Blocks

PBC Linear has combined the Frelon material with precision bearing technology to create the Simplicity® linear plain bearing and then placed that bearing inside of a housing to create a Self-Aligning, Plain Bearing Pillow Block.  Made to thrive and survive in the presence of contaminants, the self-lubricating liners offer a number of other desirable features:

  • The ability to absorb hard particulates eliminates galling and shaft damage
  • Vibration is dampened, offering smooth and quiet linear motion
Only certified Simplicity® 60 Plus® Shafting provides maximum linear bearing performance. Download the brochure here.

 

Simplicity® Precision Sleeve Linear Plain Bearings

PBC Linear has taken a Simplicity® linear plain bearing and put it into a smaller package. It's compact size offers weight advantages, as well as space saving features, while retaining the other benefits of Simplicity® plain bearing technology.

  • Absorbs hard particulates eliminating galling and shaft damage
  • Vibration damping, smooth and quiet linear motion
  • Ball-less design will NOT catastrophically fail
  • Reliable friction characteristics that do not increase over the life of the bearing
Only certified Simplicity® 60 Plus® Shafting provides maximum linear bearing performance. Download the brochure here.

 

Flange Mounts - Plain Linear Bearings

Flange Mount Plain Bearings offer the same great advantages of the Simplicity Linear Plain Bearings, incorporating a perpendicular flange for easy mounting.  Flange Mount Linear Plain Bearings come in single and double length and offer round or square flanges.  Flange Mount Plain Bearings are available in Imperial (inch), ISO Metric and JIS Metric versions.  Some additional benefits include: 

  • The ability to absorb hard particulates eliminates galling and shaft damage
  • Vibration is dampened, offering smooth and quiet linear motion
  • Custom modifications available – contact an Application Engineer for details

 

Square Bearings and Linear Rails

Simplicity™ square bearings and plugs offer the same characteristics of the standard round-way Simplicity™ bearings, but in a square package. The square bearings are available in 2-sided and 4-sided versions for options in adjustability.

  • Bearing sizes in 1” and 1.5” inside dimension
  • Self-lubricating for oil free operation
  • Replaceable bearing plugs can be purchased separately and used as a wear pad
