PBC Linear Offers New Technology Line: Profile Rail Technology

PBC Linear has announced its release of a new product technology available for 2009-Profile Rail Technology (PRT). This technology group will consist of application specific caged and non-caged runner blocks equipped with a revolutionized lubrication system to ensure longer life, ability for higher load capacities, and corrosion resistant chrome rail finishing for tolerating harsh environments.

Backed by a new reservoir lubrication system to ensure longer life and smooth and quiet operation, PRT's runner blocks are poised to provide reliable linear motion without further lubrication. As the ball bearings circulate, they are lubricated by end cap reservoirs, providing a protective lubrication film in the ball tracks, facilitating a long-lasting system. The new caged type runner blocks have additional built in oil reservoirs at every cage ball pocket which extends or eliminates the time between lubrication cycles. Caged runner blocks also provide up to 19% more load capacity and reduce noise and vibration by 84% more than competing technologies. To keep dirt out and extend life all PBC Linear runner blocks incorporate a standard double row sealing system.

Runner blocks are available in wide and narrow, low and high combinations, in addition to short, long, and extra long configurations. The rails and runner blocks are outfitted with corrosion resistant black oxide, chrome or black chrome rail finishes-making the products fully apt in most environments. For sustained linear motion, PRT runner blocks are designed to last! Industry interchangeable, and available in five application specific accuracy classes and preloads to select from, finding the correct PBC Linear guide system to achieve your linear motion needs is easier than ever.

Fully interchangeable with a host of different competing linear guides, PBC Linear's Profile Rail Technology is a low-cost solution that ensures stable, long-lasting linear motion guidance. For more information on Profile Rail Technology, please call 1.800.729.9085, email to or visit us at
