Precision Microdrives DC Gear Motors

Engineering services for motors and mechanisms

  • Expedite your product development
  • Managing your engineering risk
  • Free up your internal resources for more valuable R&D

Trust us to expedite the design and manufacture high-quality, and cost-effective, sub-Ø60 mm DC motors and mechanisms for your product

For nearly two decades, we have managed our customers’ engineering risks on every design.

Using our proven technology and design process, we engineer cost-effective, multi-volume motor and mechanism solutions you can rely on. Freeing up your engineering resource to expedite your R&D.

Three main DC Gear motor technologies

Our three main DC gear motor solutions use iron core, coreless and brushless technologies with two gearboxes, spur and planetary, in a variety of materials.

78 stocked motor form factors

We want to help get you developing quickly. So we have many off-the-shelf form factors with a variety of winding configurations available for immediate sample or purchase.

Customised for your application

Your application is unique so we expect you to need some custom features or specific performance. Work with our application engineers to design the perfect solution.

Why Precision Microdrives?

Trusted motors and mechanisms

Getting the core of your application correct, first time

Motors and mechanisms are likely one of the most expensive lines on your BOM and also the least likely to be noticed by your customers. Until they fail… 

So, choose an engineering partner that has extensive domain expertise in mitigating the technical risks of these complex products.

Rely on a manufacturing partner with a presence on the ground, robust quality control processes, and a familiar approach to maximising your value-add.

Priced to deliver the best value

We engineer our products to be optimised for your application and delivered at a best value cost.

We don’t engineer our solutions to the highest possible standards, or the lowest possible costs.

That’s not the only way we help your profitability either.

Add a very technically experienced, cost effective addition to your development team. We will free up your internal resource to focus on more valuable R&D work, which will expedite your development cycles.
