With a proven history in similar applications, the Uni-Guide linear slide has a clean track record providing precise linear motion without added lubricants. The customer, however, was also reaching for more; they wanted a turn-key system to act as the heart of the new wafer elevator.
The PBC Linear solution
PBC Linear’s team of seasoned engineers worked with the customer in designing a complete system that upon delivery simply plugs in and functions perfectly with the rest of the machine. As this mutual relationship has developed, PBC Linear not only supplied the slide but also began to supply the motors, drive screws, guards, and limit switches
Assembled in PBC Linear’s clean workroom, the specially designed Uni-Guide is subject to critical testing for accurate travel and alignment. Careful measures are taken to ensure the sterile transportation of the Uni-Guide from testing to when it arrives at its destination. PBC Linear has maintained their production and documentation in accordance with the regulations set up by the customer and upheld its reputation as the destination for solutions to the most difficult linear motion applications and has supplied product in a timely fashion worldwide.
