Prosynergic is now the agent for Schneeberger Linear Technology, a manufacturer of linear guidance solution. Founded in 1923 Schneeburger have developed several innovative technologies. In 1945 they created linear technology without friction and a few years ago they integrated a position measurement technology with linear guide rail. It creates the AMS, a guidance system with linear ruler in a single piece. They also offer Mineral casting , that give your the performance of Granite at a fraction of the cost. Also available from Schneeberger ,are high precision table and complete positioning systems

Prosynergic now represents the products of Anubis 3D. This Canadian manufacturer uses a new SLS-type 3D printing technology that allows the production of volume parts. Unlike other printing process the parts are ultra-precise, and their properties do not change in time. The final product is robust and can be used as a production part. The result is more competitive and flexible than the injection processes for low and medium volume parts.
Anubis 3D has therefore specialised in the manufacture of robots tools because the properties of the final products are ideal for the industry. The robots tools must be robust, lightweight and flexible, all of which are the qualities that make it. Thanks to the next generation computer aided design using artificial intelligence, the tools are developed by our teams of engineers according to the customer’s need and are manufactured in a few days. The built-in tool include air conduit and the shape is optimised for any force applied.
Anubis 3D has several projects that have been saved by our technology. The large weight of conventional tools tax the robots that are struggling to reach the required production rate. In several applications the tool is heavier than the load to be moved. The Anubis 3D technology is collaborative robot friendly. This type of robots less powerful than conventional robots will be well served by the low-weight tools Anubis 3D produce.

Canada, which is not successful to filled the productivity gap with the other industrialized countries. So we can’t not miss the next turning point of the 4.0 industry. The next industrial Revolution, like any other, will create wealth, winners and losers. I prefer to be a winner and you? Quebec manufacturers who once pulled their game with a low dollar, lower overall costs and a sense of resourcefulness in Quebec will have more and more difficulty in doing so. Several companies did not even take the turn completely 3.0. The well-structured company, equipped with the latest technology will thrive thanks to automation. Their product will be better built. They will have fewer production stops, their customers will know the delivery dates and will be delighted. Do we have a choice? Well no more than Ford’s competitors had, with the chain production.
Ford was doing thing, faster, better cheaper!
The basis of change begins with the simplification of work and the automation of repetitive processes. In the majority of cases the result is a higher rate, more quality, more consistency and more safety for the workers who works with the machines. I think Canada is well positioned. We have invested in our schools and we have a good pool of educated people in addition to having a good basin of aging machinery that needs to be changed. Interest rates are relatively low. We only have to look at the Chinese who currently install more robots than any other country in the world and yet the labor is plentiful and cheap? They may have understood that it is inevitable and strategic.
Now you have to start planning and investing before your company loses its relevance in the market and your low market position makes financing of the new technology impossible. I will not hide that there is a lot of work to arrive at the factory 4.0. But the profits are immense not to mention that the generation of millennial that follows may not want to work in a factory or repetitive work is difficult and stunning or even in a factory where the information is non-existent. This generation is accustomed to finding its info with Google. It will be difficult to understand that nothing is available on your production line. That the reports are made by hand by collecting given data on the right and left. I think they’re right.
So in my humble opinion the turning point is inevitable, if not your industry is doomed, because your competitors will do things better, cheaper and faster than you. Further recruiting new employees to work in outdated factories will be impossible. You don’t want to live the inverted Hygrade phenomenon, fewer people eat it because it is not fresh. Or the inverted spiral that is so scary to Bill Gates.
When buying a car or a new smart phone people want the latest technology, why not do the same thing in our factories. Don’t we spend three quarters of our lives at work?
Need help setting your priorities? Contact us. We have several solutions that are part of the 4.0 industry approach
Intelligent sensor, security management, quality control, networking and robotics Infrastructure.
We may have a solution to help you solve problems and reduce complexity in managing projects involving linear axes. Several manufacturers of linear components have difficulty to meet the current global demand right now. The delivery of components such as linear rails, ball screw, and rail guides has been increased buy the double, some from 6 months to 12 months. Making the management very difficult and the level of energy for the management of the orders, just doubled. Have you ever calculated the cost of building your linear solution with individual that involves multiple vendors? PBC linear has come to the conclusion that it is less expensive to buy a complete solution. Consideration must be given to engineering costs, purchase costs, multiple tracking, complex assembly, overhead cost, inventory cost. In addition to possible errors of choice and assembly of 21 component VS. 1. According to the famous principle that if something should go wrong it will always be when you cannot afford it. So imagine forgetting to order components with 12 months of delivery or even a bad choice of caliber that requires a reengineering and another order of 12 months.
To sub contract its linear needs to experts is a good idea. The quantity of system delivered by those manufacturer allows to have a design proven by the community of users and to have judicious advice and to obtain a product closer to its needs without having to over-calibrate all the components. In addition to giving you an audit of your engineering the sub-assembly approach allows you to save time and gain efficiency. This is why PBC linear itself components manufacturing now offers pre-assembled products. Another benefit of the approach is that manufacturers of linear solutions when sourcing from linear components outside have a larger volume and goes first in the supply chains assuring you a better global delivery. Moreover they are able to better manage the situations of drastic change of delivery of components so if you’re main reason for being is not the linear axis construction let the experts give you a solution. Some manufacturers for example stock linear Rail and cuts to the desire length has needed. So they can better anticipate and adapt to different market demand. And do not have to wait for the rail manufacturer to cut it.
