Dean DeBiase, Chairman & Bob Schroeder, CEO – PBC Linear


Rockford IL based PBC Linear provides emerging industries and demanding applications with innovative solutions in linear motion products and services, through a range of precision engineered components and mechatronics delivered from a centralized United States manufacturing facility.

Our new Applied Cobotics brand has developed automated storage retrieval system which offers customers a collaborative automation tool for lights-out manufacturing and Factory of the Future Programs, with a mix of sophisticated digital technology, smart automation tools, and an upscaled workforce to the factory floor.

Under our Factory of the Future Program, Applied Cobotics represents the newest ideas in advanced manufacturing, with the next-generation of collaborative robots (cobots).

Cobots are another evolutionary branch on the automation tree. Their traditional definition is a robot that works side-by-side with the human workforce to maintain a higher level of production, product quality, and worker safety. For PBC Linear and other small to medium-sized enterprises, they represent a more cost-effective way to implement robotic automation over that of large-scale traditional robots.

At PBC Linear, this new upskilling of the workforce has been the product of new and engaging training programs that utilize augmented reality (AR). Through partners like Taqtile, MagicLeap, Hololens and other AR vision wear platforms, we are helping to create a factory that is more efficient and addresses talent gaps and labor shortages in manufacturing. PBC Linear has been able to increase production by 33% while maintaining only a 3% increase in labor.

Heading to 2030, there is an increasing demand for agility and flexibility that includes shorter jobs runs, faster lead times, and a wider variety of parts. PBC Linear will continue to adapt to changing needs with the latest in technological platforms and help other US manufactures lead the way by improving their global competitiveness.
