Instruments and test equipment require robust, well built and increasingly cost effective mechanisms
Miniature motors and mechanisms are used widely in the test equipment and instrumentation market, sometimes in ways that are not expected. Consider for example the touchscreen of a high-end oscilloscope. There’s a motor there to provide haptic feedback to the user.
Instruments are typically very well built and built to last, and that’s because in the past instrument companies would build them to be sold as capital items. New markets are emerging now though where the equipment is built to be leased to the user.
In some evolving business models, the instrument may even ‘loaned’ to the end user for free, and the end-user is charged each time the machine is used. Point of care medical diagnostic instruments are starting to be manufactured this way, but in these examples a significant cost-focused redesign of the instrument is required.
The design and manufacture of complex mechanisms to a cost target, is our main area of expertise. Having built many instruments of our own (many, many, dynamometers), we understand the design philosophy that goes into designing and manufacturing sub assemblies for instrumentation applications.
You can depend on our team of experienced motor engineers. A partnership with us will see your engineering risks managed, and free you to focus on developing market winning features in your instrument.
Reliable, cost-effective miniature mechanisms and motors that meet your application demands.
