A year after being introduced, PBC Linear’s new line of Linear Actuator Technology (LAT) has been successfully implemented in several different industries worldwide. From medical and clean room applications to food processing and packaging – PBC Linear’s actuator line can be used to lower production time and costs virtually everywhere linear motion is applied.
Sealed against contamination, the PL and MT series actuators can be utilized in a wide array of environments. Recently, both actuator designs have been used heavily in several different clean room applications. The PL series ball-screw driven linear actuator has been integrated with newly available Integral V Technology (IVT) to provide accurate linear motion for both digital imagers and printers. With this new combination of LAT and IVT, PBC Linear has been able to promote a low cost solution to high precision.
Assembled in an XYZ gantry, the MT series belt-driven linear actuator found success in lab equipment. Used as a high precision pick and place machine, this gantry greatly reduced the time for medical testing and diagnosis. As a result of the MT series self-contained system design and flush mounting capabilities, this linear actuator has been successful in many industries. Other applications of how the diverse MT series has been utilized include a lifting system for high load capacity boxes, a horizontally installed precision glue gun, and aCNC milling system.
Newly added to the LAT family is the MLA mini-actuator. Its lightweight design, unique one piece carriage, and t-slots make installation a breeze. Created for compact spaces, the MLA actuator comes available with precise positioning, allowing for fast and accurate linear motion. Available with a wide variety of optional mounting components, the MLA actuator is a solution to several different applications.
