One of PBC Linear’s key technologies is their Simplicity® linear bearing system, which uses a self-lubricating design to eliminate the need for external lubrication. The story of PBC Linear began with this innovative solution to a common issue with linear ball bearings. PBC’s creation and eventual patent for their iconic red Simplicity bearing led the way to its successful existence today. During the last four decades, that successful plain bearing design provided for more innovation resulting in a large offering of linear motion and automation products. 50 % of PBC’s revenue is due to products designed as proprietary.
