PBC Linear and Moons' Industries recently announced a joint venture together to develop and deliver integrated mechatronic solutions for linear motion applications.
For over 30 years, PBC Linear has been a developer and manufacturer of linear motion solutions for a broad range of applications while developing a market in North America. In the last 20 years, Moons’ Industries has grown to become the fourth largest stepper motor manufacturer in the world with a base in Asia and Europe. Combining in a joint venture, PBC & Moons’ bring experience in manufacturing precision linear rails, multiple bearing types and drive options, and creating robust linear actuators along with experience in stepper and smart stepper motors, control solutions, and network connectivity to provide a global, simplified approach to integrated mechatronics for single axis robot modules and multi-axis systems.
The PBC and Moons’ combination addresses the markets merging of multiple technical disciplines, trims down and consolidates the proliferation of vendors and companies to deal with, and simplifies the complex design and architecture of a mechatronics solution.
The composite of world class linear motion from PBC and the world class motors and controls from Moons’ simplifies the selection process for designers, streamlines engineering and application, and makes maintenance manageable by bringing together the pieces of mechanical, electrical, and controls to create a complete mechatronics solution for linear motion.
