Motors for Medical Imaging


Medical imaging machines utilize a range of methods to view various areas of the human body to diagnose, monitor, and treat medical conditions; these include ultrasounds, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and X-rays that help obtain necessary details about the patient's condition. The detailed information gathered through these methods is critical for healthcare professionals to determine the most effective treatment plans, ensuring optimal patient care.

In medical imaging equipment, various motion technologies are utilized across different motion axes to enhance performance and ensure reliability. Brushless DC motors offer high-speed capabilities with precise speed control, making them ideal for applications requiring rapid and stable movement. DC coreless motors, known for their high efficiency and power, provide robust performance in a compact design, making them suitable for space-constrained environments. Stepper motors excel in delivering precise movements and fine accuracy, essential for applications that demand exact positioning and control.
