Commonly Used Products

Motorized Traction Wheels

Lin Engineering’s motorized traction wheel solutions are designed to deliver compact, easy-to-use, and more efficient traction solutions.


  • In-Wheel motors are gearless, high pole count BLDC motors specifically designed for the direct drive of low payload vehicles, up to 500 Watts per wheel.
  • Servo-Wheel motors are geared and gearless servo motors with greater power density and efficiency. They are best suited for medium-to-high payload vehicles and are available with power up to 2 Kilowatts. These wheels can accommodate multiple-sized motors.


Servo-wheel motors are available with optional brakes, encoders or dual encoders, as well as your choice of planetary, belt, or spur gear transmissions.

Outer Rotor Motors

Outer rotor motors are different from typical motors as they have the rotor and stator switched. By doing this the outside of the motor will turn instead of the shaft. This can be helpful in situations where direct drive is needed.

Why Choose Lin Engineering?

We understand that not everyone can be an expert in Motion Control. The goal is to find a motor that will move an object from point A to point B. But often there’s more to consider than just Speed and Torque requirements. Engineers need to consider mounting structures, space allotment, noise, vibration, heat, component materials, windings, and much more. But not all companies have in-house expertise related to motion control or motor design.

We are a “Solution First” company that not only supplies the motors that you need, but also provides the Engineering expertise needed to find, optimize, and customize the right motors that will perform within your system optimally and reliably.

These motors are designed and manufactured to operate in unique environments for specific applications. Vacuum-rated motors, for example, are necessary for environments where out-gassing needs to be minimized such as vacuum chambers, space applications, and clean room environments. IP (Ingress Protection) rated motors are perfect for applications exposed to humidity, water, oil, and other various debris. We also carry motors that are specifically designed to operate in extreme hot and cold temperatures.

  • Vacuum and Ultra High Vacuum Grade Motors
  • Ingress Protection (IP) Rated Motors
  • Hot/Cold Temperature Operating Motors
