Efficiency and Power Density Redefined in Harsh Surgical Environments
Since the advent of civilization, the art of motion has been a critical part of human life in the quest to save, improve, and enhance lives. With advances in technology, motors are playing a very important part in our day to day lives, at times very subtly without our knowledge. Technology has helped improve motor power density and has enabled usage in various applications that once used pneumatic controls. OEM’s around the world developing motion applications in medical and industrial markets require the best power density, efficiency, and reduced envelope with lowered overall cost of ownership.
As an example, medical surgical handtools need to withstand harsh environments – autoclave, saline, dish wash and at the same time deliver required power density & efficacy with given power source (battery) while expecting improved patient outcomes. We have seen multiple failures at customers due to improper selection of motors or because the motors were not rated for autoclave exposures.
- Surgical Handtool Applications That Can Be Enhanced by an Optimized Mini Motor Solution Include:
- Orthopedic Reamers
- Surgical Drills
- Surgical Saws
- Powered ENT / Neuro and Spine Drills
- Arthroscopic Shavers
- Powered Surgical Staplers
- ENT Microdebriders
- Powered Plastic Surgery Devices
In emerging markets such as India & China, we are seeing a renewed interest in cutting edge applications that require a solutions approach. Be it medical surgical hand tools, infusions system, injectors, pipettes, medical imaging/x-rays, exoskeletons, ventilators/ respirators, robotics, aerospace and defense, factory automation, security & access, pruning shears and total stations, customers are demanding products and solutions that meet specific applications requirements that can be further customized.
