US Based Support and Manufacturing

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

Hot & Cold Motors

Content image

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
