Space flight is challenging enough without having to worry about the operational limitations of the components used in the devices going into orbit. And since motors are a major component used in any motion system, specifications need to be on-target and reliable over a long period of time.

The harsh environment of vacuum and microgravity applications pose many issues with component capabilities that don’t commonly have to be dealt with here on Earth. That is especially true when it comes to components where movement is their primary function—such as motion control systems. Motors specifically introduce many inherent problems to the environment, mainly due to the fact that they require considerable amounts of power to operate, can generate excessive heat, can introduce unwanted vibrations into the system, and can become a source of contaminants.


Lin Engineering Space grade motors are flight-proven to deal with these problems.

US Based Manufacturing And Support

Content image

Our office in Morgan Hill, California hosts one of our manufacturing floors as well as our engineering team. This allows our engineering team to provide support for any questions that may arise during the process. A big advantage of having our engineers near the production floor is that they can quickly review prototypes to ensure they are accurate to the specifications. Having US based manufacturing means Lin Engineering can provide quick responses to spikes in orders as well as kanban stocking.

Applications Support

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
