Motors for Seat Actuation


Seat Actuation

Passenger comfort is the top priority for seat actuation systems.  All axes, including footrest, leg rest and recline, must be moved synchronously to reach their desired position at the same time. Portescap's brushless and brush DC coreless motors power seat actuators efficiently and reliably while offering high torque in a small, lightweight package.

Our brushless and brush DC coreless motors deliver increased levels of precision, smooth motion, and reduced noise to provide flawless operation for seat motion systems.
