GET EXACTLY WHAT YOU NEED

In motion control, no two designs are the same. When you’re optimizing for the best efficiency, accuracy, or speed, you don’t want a motor that is close enough, you want a motor that meets your requirements precisely. This is exactly what we can provide: a motor with the exact specifications you need for your specific design or application.

MEET REQUIREMENTS

We manufacture and keep data with accordance to ISO9001:2015, AS9100D and many other standards. For this reason,
our motors can be found in numerous FDA and FAA-approved applications.

FAST PROTOTYPE TURNAROUND

Our Northern California manufacturing facility doubles as our prototyping facility. This gives us a much higher flexibility to try out different components and windings to ensure the motor will perform at its best. This also ensures that prototypes operate the same as the volume parts. Plus, we test each motor in real time.
