Join PBC Linear and FASTech® during this year’s Assembly Tech Expo at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. FASTech will be exhibiting their high performance stepper motors using PBC Linear’s precision Linear Actuator Technology (LAT) from September 22-24.

PBC Linear has a 26 year reputation in the linear motion industry for designing long-lasting solutions to the toughest linear motion problems. This year PBC Linear is showcasing their compact, miniature linear actuators, the ML series. This new actuator measures only 28 x 32 mm (with varying lengths), allowing an easy fit into tight space applications. The ML series is also post-process precision machined for enhanced accuracy in linear guidance using PBC Linear’s proprietary SIMO™ machining process. With flexible motor mounting along with additional design options and accessories, the ML series can provide smooth, quiet and accurate linear motion in a multitude of different applications; such as material handling, precision pick-and-place, and optical positioning.

FAS Technology (FASTech) began in 2001 developing innovative motion control technology. FASTech specializes in providing their customers with high torque, Fast, Accurate, Smooth (FAS) and reliable motion control that puts the control in the customer’s hands. Their Ezi-Servo® closed loop, high torque stepper motor control system acts like a servo but is priced like a stepper system and is available with or without an integral network based motion controller. Ezi-Servo® features a closed loop design, no gain tuning, no hunting, high resolution and state-of-the-art software damping and filtering. 10000, 20000 and 32000 line encoders are standard options and readily available for a broad spectrum of applications from simple pick and place to complex vision systems.

The Ezi-Step® open loop stepper motor control system is low cost and feature rich: micro stepping, sensor-less stall detection (no more loosing steps), and software damping are standard. Ezi-Step® is also available with an integral network based motion controller.

FASTech systems are simple, quick and easy to install and setup. They can be operated by PLCs, Motion Controllers, Plug-in PC boards, networked together or run as standalone systems. FASTech also provides the complete user interface control through its broad I/O product offering.

So stop by FASTech at booth 245 to see both companies’ high performance motion control products in action. Representatives from both companies will also be standing by to answer any questions. We hope to see you there!
