PM Bearings develops and manufactures high-quality linear bearings, crossed-roller slides, and innovative linear and rotary stages. The company has a broad range of models and sizes covering almost every need in linear motion where precision is required. But as well as the standard products, PM is also recognised as a European market leader for custom-made systems.
The company's precision engineering facility is noted for its development and rapid prototyping expertise in producing equipment to customers' specifications. There is also a module and testing facility but, because of lean manufacturing methods, the prices are surprisingly competitive - especially for standard units. PM's long history of manufacturing first-class products dates back to 1966 and this wealth of experience and commitment to ongoing research is said to have resulted in state-of-the-art technological leadership.
Micromech is a leading UK supplier of motion and control products; this addition to its business will give customers even greater support as well as access to a wider range of products. The company was established over 25 years ago and Micromech has since built a strong reputation for specifying and supplying electromechanical equipment throughout industry. From single components to multi-axis systems, Micromech can, if required, design, build and commission 'specials' to customers' specifications. The service and technical support provided over the years means Micromech is recognised by many as the first choice in the motion market.
Herman Luth, Managing Director or PM Bearings, comments: "Our desire to expand our sales and also to make PM Bearings a leading brand in the UK has lead to our appointment of Micromech. The specialist skills required to address the technical disciplines for motion are fully met by our new partner and we believe our aims can be achieved".
For Micromech, Managing Director Dave Gronland adds: "This agreement is an important development, as it enables us to offer customers solutions for standard and special applications in today's fast-moving and cost-sensitive economy".
