PBC Linear®, a Pacific Bearing Company (Roscoe, IL) has introduced the SIMO® Series linear motion platform. Options allow a design engineer to meet multiple application requirements with a single platform. Options include a low-profile rail for tight spaces or a tall version for greater structural integrity. Each aluminum base rail is qualified with the SIMO process (Simultaneous Integral Milling Operation). Three bearing tribologies are available: self-lubricating FrelonGOLD® plain bearings for contaminated environments, V-wheel roller bearings for high-speed applications, and profile rail linear guideways with recirculating ball bearings for rigidity and precision. Three drive types are available: lead screw with machined nut or anti-backlash nut, ball screw, or two versions of belt drives.
