Today’s medical devices need motor solutions optimised for performance and price – ‘value engineering’
The breadth of medical device development is tremendous. Many of these new devices need a motor or a mechanism to slide, push, pull, draw or inject something.
Meanwhile, business models are evolving. In the past medical devices were engineered for performance. Today they are engineered to a performance and a price point. This is enabling medical device manufacturers to rapidly scale production for end-user devices, and lease or loan instruments, whilst charging for ‘pay per use’ test materials.
In the past, specifying in high performance and high cost US / Swiss / German motors was a good approach, but they are simply too costly for today’s high growth device business models.
Sourcing motors and mechanisms directly from Asia will certainly offer a lower cost, but that comes with uncertainty on design, quality, reliability, validation, delivery and not to mention cultural and communication challenges.
Precision Microdrives is the middle ground. We know how to manage your risks in this niche area of engineering, so that you don’t have to.
We understand how to design a motor into a product with the right level of performance. Good enough to serve the lifetime of the application, and at a price point that will enable today’s commercial strategies.
Reliable, cost-effective miniature mechanisms and motors that meet your application demands.
Our catalogue features an overview of the technology we make, with specifications and datasheets.
