The Compact Series Linear Guide System from PBC Linear® is designed to provide smooth, accurate, and repeatable linear motion in tight spaces. The Compact Series boasts a low profile - 23 mm - standard system height making it an ideal solution for applications such as lab automation, medical, automated delivery systems, dispensing robotics, and electronic board manufacturing. 

Giding options

  • self-lubricating, maintenance free gliding system (GST) provides smooth and quiet operation 
  • ball circulating system (PRT) provides rigid performance and is ideal for applications that require high loads or precise positional accuracy

Drive options

Lead screw with multiple leads – with standard fixed or Constant Force™anti-backlash options. The self-lubricating polymer nuts and lead screws provide good rigidity, vibration damping and consistent performance.

Motor options

  • Integrated NEMA 17 or NEMA 23 stepper motors; single, double, or triple stack
  • motor mount option for attaching stepper, servo, or smart motor
