Pacific Linear Bearing: The Art of Simplicity 

The Pacific Linear Bearing Corporation may be better known as the parent company of PBC Linear and LEE Linear, but the original company has been around since 1962. With a huge range of linear bearing parts and associated products, the design of Pacific linear bearings generally focus on simplicity of form, making them some of the most versatile and popular linear bearing products in the world.

The ‘Round Shaft Technology’ of the Pacific Linear Bearing Corporation uses a precision ground shafting design available in a variety of materials such as aluminium and either hardened or stainless steel. The bearings work in tandem with Pacific’s range of high quality ball bearing products which includes sleeve bushings and pillow block housings along with a variety of standard bearings and flanges. They also manufacture a good selection of support rail assemblies.

Let’s look closer at the Pacific Linear Bearing Corporation and its excellent range of bearing products.

A Brief History of the Pacific Linear Bearing Corporation

Back in the early 1960s, the firm was known as the Prodo Mach Corporation, before merging with the Premac company and taking on that name. The Pacific Bearing Company was then founded in 1983, primarily to be the sales company for Premac. However, Pacific Bearing quickly became officially incorporated, later merging with Premac to become one single company under the Pacific Linear Bearing name.

It was during the 1980s that the company transitioned from its metalworking origins to become a specialist bearing manufacturer. By focusing its research and development on bearings, the company soon invented the first self-lubricating plain bearing, known by the ‘Simplicity’ trademark

The Pacific Linear Bearing Corporation continued expanding its linear bearing product line throughout the early 2000s, eventually launching PBC Linear in 2008 to be a dedicated linear bearing subsidiary.
