Motors for Medical Devices
We offer a comprehensive selection of high performance motors that are used in a variety of applications within the overall medical market.
High Performance Motors
The medical market is a market in motion – both literally and figuratively. With the Baby Boomers reaching retirement age and technology advancing almost exponentially, this is an exciting market for companies that supply components and assemblies into medical applications. The marketplace is vast with products ranging from simple syringes and disposables to complex diagnostic machinery such as CT scanner and MRI equipment. Embedded in the overall market are many niche markets that require motion components.
Typical applications include:
- Medical centrifuges
- CT scanners, MRI and diagnostic equipment
- Airway clearance therapy
- Medical pumps, blowers and compressors
- Surgical instruments – saws and drills
High Performance Motor Solutions
Motors for typical medical applications, particularly portable ones, are required to be:
- Reliable – long life
- Arcless – produces no sparks or arching in normal operation
- High power density – high torque / dollar ratio
- Precision rotor balance
- High speed (centrifuge, saw and drill applications)
