Benefits of Engineer-to-Engineer Collaboration in the Motion Control Industry

When you’re designing a device that requires a miniature motion solution, selecting a trusted and reputable motion control provider is crucial. One of the key qualifications to look for while vetting these suppliers is a focus on Engineer-to-Engineer, or E to E collaboration! As its name would suggest, Engineer-to-Engineer collaboration is a process in which engineers representing both the motion supplier and the customer team up to actively design and develop the device, working together through the entire ideation to implementation process. Here are 4 key benefits of E2E collaboration

Improving Airplane Passenger Comfortability with Brush DC and BLDC Motors

The seat actuation systems utilized in commercial and passenger jets deliver quiet and smooth operation of seat movement while simultaneously offering control of multiple axes to maximize passenger comfort while seated in the aircraft cabin. Once the working point is achieved, seat actuation focuses on employing miniature motors to drive the actuator for a given set of seat control axes. Explore how Portescap’s brushless DC and brush DC motion solutions provide the levels of precision, smooth motion, and reduced noise to provide flawless operation for seat motion systems

Thrombolysis Treatment Devices Depend on Miniature Motors

Did you know that lood flow can become blocked when blood thickens and clumps in your blood vessels? Mechanical thrombectomy devices fragment and extract a blood clot (or thrombus) from a blood vessel. These are powered by a coreless DC motor, which delivers higher speed capabilities and speed consistency during the operation. Combined with the motor’s light weight and improved tactile feel, these DC motor-powered thrombectomy devices help ensure the proper fragmentation and aspiration of the clot while helping to ensure no complications arise.
