Company Profile

PBC Linear (A Pacific Bearing Company) is a worldwide supplier of innovative linear and rotary motion solutions. Since our founding in 1982, when PBC Linear pioneered the first two-piece bonded Simplicity® linear bearing, we have built a solid reputation for providing innovative application solutions solving the toughest linear and rotary problems.

The success and continued demand for the Simplicity® self-lubricated linear and rotary bearings, has broadened our market opportunities and fostered new product introductions. The Simplicity® product family has expanded to include thrust and sleeve bearings, die set bushings, square bearings, pillow blocks, and a complete line of European and Japanese metric bearings.

Today, PBC Linear\'s design innovation extends beyond plane bearings. The introduction of FrelonGOLD® bearing liner material in 1998, created the opportunity to introduce Feather Shafting - a new lightweight ceramic coated roundway shaft that is approximately 1/3 the weight of steel shafting plus, providing the smoothest and quietest linear and rotary motion. Combining both Simplicity® and Feather Shaft® technologies, PBC Linear created Dolphin Guides® (now known as \'Uni-Guides\') and Mini Rail® Linear Guides. They feature our simple, cost effective, two-piece linear guides that afford the design engineer integration flexibility and direct compatibility with competitive Linear Guide technologies.

Redi-Rail® was created to meet the industry demand for faster, lighter and quieter linear motion applications. Combining lightweight structural components, precision steel inner raceways, and high-speed self lubricated roller bearings; Redi-Rail® delivers high-speed performance (8 meters/second), with continuous rail lengths available up to 19 feet (6m). Redi-Rail® Linear guides are also configured in V-Guide Systems to provide high speed, moderate load capacity in harsh environments.

Hevi-Rail®, heavy-duty Linear Bearing Systems provide high load capacity and simple installation. Hevi-Rail® is a sealed, self-lubricated bearing that is capable of addressing both radial and axial loads up to 41 KN. Utilizing Hevi-Rail® combination bearings, coupled with our complete line of accessories; eliminates components, reduces installation time, and subsequently lowers costs.

In 2008, PBC Linear introduced its newly developed, patented technology: Integral V™ Technology (IVT). Integral V is an innovative linear guide system that reduces cost by eliminating unnecessary mounting components while maintaining high precision. Offered in several different configurations, IVT has been successfully implemented in many different applications and environments. Lowering both production time and cost, IVT is the perfect low-cost solution.

2008 also marked the year when PBC Linear unveiled its new complete line of Linear Actuator Technology (LAT). Available in ball-screw, lead screw, and belt driven configurations, LAT is the perfect way to lower production time and cost. Sealed against contamination and available in a wide variety of sizes, LAT has been applied in many different industries. Packaging, medical, food processing — PBC Linear’s actuators have proven to be a fast, reliable product virtually everywhere.

PBC Linear now offers its linear motion components completely assembled in pre-engineered Systems, Slides and Stages. We also offer ball screw, lead screw, and belt drives, in addition to linear motors, and cylinders. Catalog systems are available in a few days and custom systems are also available quickly. Check us out for these timesaving, low cost alternatives.

PBC Linear is a leader in providing custom linear and rotary motion solutions. Our worldwide team of Sales Engineers and Professionals will help you with your linear and radial motion design problems.
