Linear motion solutions for Laboratory & Medical Technology

As medical diagnostics, devices, and laboratories have become more reliant on automation and laboratory processing, a need has grown for more refined and dynamic linear motion systems.

PBC Linear designs and manufactures linear motion components and complete XYZ systems ideal for bio-sample handling and lab automation applications. From simple to complex maintenance-free components, all the way to sophisticated Cartesian robotic and automation systems, PBC’s products ensure long-lasting operation, enhanced system performance, and lower total installed cost.

Depending on the application, our products screws can provide an appropriate combination of accuracy, positional repeatability, and consistent linear motion speeds that meet application requirements, and ultimately help to balance cost with overall effectiveness.

LST Lead Screw Technology
LST Lead Screw Technology

The LST (Lead Screw Technology) family of PBC linear is the perfect union of precision lead screws, anti-backlash nuts, and world class NEMA motors.

PBC Linear has a wide product range. The Simplicity® bearing is the first self-lubricating and maintenance-free sliding bearing system. Uni-Guides® and Mini-Rail® linear guides are also based on the same principles as the Simplicity bearings. Redi-Rail® was the first product to combine a low-cost aluminum extrusion with a hardened steel or stainless steel shaft inserted to be used as a bearing raceway. Hevi-Rail systems carry high loads, up to 350kN! PBC Linear has a product which can meet almost any application for linear guidance.

PBC Linear has a worldwide distribution network with thousands of offices worldwide.

The PBC Linear Europe GmbH is a 100% subsidiary of the PBC linear, Roscoe, USA. Main task is attracting new customers and the continuous expansion of the European distribution network. PBC Linear is represented in almost all European countries by distributors.
