Motors and mechanisms for consumer products

Cost-effective and reliable motors and mechanisms that can withstand a few knocks

It’s clear that many consumer devices have to interact with the real world and for that they need a motor or a mechanism. Designing for consumer applications is a bit of an art because there are many competing constraints. The cost is often the most important objective to consider but the ease of manufacture, which enables fast ramp-ups if the product ‘takes off’, is also a key component.

Reliability cannot be compromised and we have to assume that all consumers will drop their shiny new product at least several times during its lifetime. Repairability and recyclability are also important to plan for.

As a team, we have designed and engineered a lot of consumer products since we began in 2004. We understand the ‘shadow’ that an initial design will cast on the whole project and how hard we have to work to trim the bill of materials to only a handful of highly integrated and critical components.

If you’re working on a consumer application with a motor, get in touch with our team today. We’ll assess very quickly where we can add value share some helpful advice.
