Earlier in November 2014, MOONS’ and PBC Linear announced a joint venture together at China International Industry Fair 2014, which aims to develop and deliver integrated mechatronic solutions for linear motion applications. PBC Linear, located in Roscoe, IL, is a world leading developer and manufacturer of linear motion solutions for a broad range of applications while developing a solid market in North America.
MOONS’, headquartered in Shanghai, is a world renowned developer and manufacturer of stepper motors, servo motors, BLDC motors and related motor drives & solutions serving various industrial automation fields globally. The establishment of the JV will bring expertise 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 composite of world class linear motion from PBC and the world class motors and controls from Moons’ will simplify 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.
