Miniature motors from Precision Microdrives
Motors you need, available immediately
Whether you are looking for a single DC motor or a volume order of vibration motors for industrial manufacturing, Precision Microdrives offers services and products that are suited to your needs. With a rapidly growing range of off the shelf stock units from miniature 4mm vibration motors, coin type oscillators to high power 12v DC motors and geared units, developers and engineers have a choice of parts which they can immediately apply in their design.
Solid Engineering Foundation from Imperial College
Founded by two engineering graduates from Imperial College in London, Precision Microdrives extends most engineering suppliers with extensive knowledge and expertise in product development and module design. It has the capacity to develop enterprising new designs for integration of motors and motion control using the experience built up with microprocessor motion control and motor actuation. Alongside the supply of high quality DC geared motors, PMD continues to develop new modules such as valve controllers and linear actuators based on these fundamental components.
Motor supply focused on engineering development
As the company is founded on engineering development and the integration of micromotors and miniature geared motors to real world products and solutions, the range of motors available and the operations is geared to assist the designer from the concept stage all the way to handling full manufacture. Unlike more conventional design stages of concept design linking to manufacturing design; the customer is able to use and test the manufacturing part from day 1. So no time is wasted sourcing volume suppliers for the motor or motor assembly, engineers can rest assured that the motor used in testing and developement is identical to the large volume mass production unit. The gear ratios, materials and manufacturing methods for the geared motors, and the same for the vibration motors and bare DC micromotors are consistant for every order whether it is for a single unit or a 100k volume manufacturing run.
Reliability in supply and engineering design
Precision Microdrives utilises its network of factories, agents and production engineers in Asia, particularly China in order to deliver world class quality and reliability. For example, the linear actuator combines custom design optical encoders and an innovative new geartrain to offer miniature linear actuation at a fraction of the cost of existing options. The engineering design of the DC powered unit is developed using the expertise of British engineers in the UK. Experience and know-how for operating in Asia generated through experience allows Precision Microdrives to turn the UK engineering design into a reliably manufactured module at a competitive price. The scope of the motor products available through Precision Microdrives allows engineers to make an informed decision on their design, and to add to that they are able to physically test each type with the production motor.
