US Based Support and Manufacturing

COVID-19 Priority

Content image

With the recent COVID-19 outbreak, the demand for medical equipment has been quickly increasing. A lot of these devices depend on their precise motors to operate. In order to support the ongoing efforts to combat COVID-19, we are prioritizing the production and supply of our motors to support companies producing medical devices critical to the treatment of COVID-19 patients. Especially those producing medical ventilators and equipment needed for respiratory care.

Rapid Prototyping

Content image

For custom prototypes, our Northern California manufacturing facility doubles as our prototyping facility, which means our engineers work within the premises of the manufacturing facility. They have access to the same tools that will be used to produce your motor in volume. This allows us to provide accurate prototypes quickly as the engineers can be hands-on with every step.

Engineering Support

For OEM Motor Projects, we’ll work directly with your engineering team throughout the design phase of your project to ensure the best overall system optimization and motor fit while avoiding over-engineering and other potential issues. 

Quick Production Ramp-ups

Content image

Our multiple manufacturing facilities—within the United States and in Asia—allows us to start manufacturing motors fast and ramp-up volume production. Our Northern California facility is optimized for low to mid-volume production, while our off-shore facilities are optimized for high volume production, allowing us to rapidly scale with your manufacturing requirements.

Optimized Performance
