ElectroCraft Response to the Global Pandemic
ElectroCraft releases new powerful linear actuators for medical and laboratory equipment markets
The following are a few of the key medical applications where ElectroCraft motors empower medical motion control.
Motorized Wheelchairs and Scooters
Medical mobility equipment requires long life, high torque DC brush or brushless gear motors to achieve the long term performance and reliability that users expect. The ElectroCraft MP, MPP or MPS series gear motors are specifically designed for this demanding market segment. Over 1 million ElectroCraft mobility gear motors are in service worldwide delivering the smooth, controlled power with high starting torque that mobility chairs require.
Fluid delivery systems for medical applications require precise, reliable pump solutions to accurately control volume, pressure and flow. ElectroCraft's RPX and LRPX series brushless DC motors, gearmotors and high-performance motor drives provide the ideal solution for any type of medical pump device, including blood transfusion, peristaltic pumps, infusion pumps, syringe pumps and dialysis machines. Small size, high torque density, precise motor speed control and low noise are just some of the important performance characteristics that an ElectroCraft motion solution provides.
Air pumps and air delivery systems
Air delivery systems for medical applications require precise, reliable pump solutions to accurately control volume, pressure and flow. ElectroCraft's RPX series brushless DC motors and high-performance motor drives are the perfect choice for ventilators and CPAP machines, providing small size, high torque density, precise motor speed control and low noise; the ideal solution for regulated air flow.
Hospital Beds and Patient Transport Systems
Positioning control on hospital beds, exam tables and patient transport systems require the smooth powerful torque of brush DC motors and gearmotors to provide the movement that medical staff require, without sacrificing the comfort that patients expect. ElectroCraft's robust PMDC products are the ideal size and offer the long brush life and quiet operation that is necessary for these sensitive applications.
Technological innovation is advancing rapidly in the world of medical prosthetics. Today's capabilities would have been unimaginable even just a few years ago. To achieve the levels of dexterity and sensitivity that is provided by these devices, ElectroCraft offers compact, high-performance motion control solutions, including stepper, brush and brushless DC motors, gearmotors and drives.
Medical imaging systems such as CT scanners and MRI machines are indispensible tools in today's medical diagnostic environment and the automated motion aspects of the equipment is critical to their functionality. ElectroCraft stepper and brushless DC motor technologies combined with our high-performance drive platforms provide a complete motion control system that delivers the accuracy and reliability this sophisticated equipment requires.
The trend toward increased automation in surgical equipment continues. The accuracy and minimal invasiveness of today's surgical equipment has truly revolutionized the modern operating room. Stepper, brush and brushless DC motors, gearmotors, mechanical actuators and drives are all key components in this type of automated equipment. ElectroCraft offers a wide variety of solutions for traction, steering, arm/joint positioning and end of arm tooling control.
These are just a sampling of the applications that ElectroCraft provides motion control solutions for in the medical market, and only a hint at future innovation. As a custom motor and motion control solution provider, ElectroCraft is the ideal partner for your medical equipment requirements.
