Precision Microdrives specialises in the design and manufacture of Brushless Motors providing highly customised solutions for a number of applications.
Brushless Motors design and form factors
Precision Microdrives designs a range of brushless DC motors in different sizes and forms.
Brushless Motor technology
Instead of a brush and a commutator found in a brushed motor, a small circuit board coordinates the energy delivered to the windings, resulting in fast reactions, added performance levels and increased durability.
Customising for application
Whether it is modifications to existing motors, new designs, or additional mechanisms and
driver circuits our team are here to design a solution to suit your application.

forms and factors
Precision Microdrives range of Brushless Motors
Brushless motors have a number of advantages over regular brushed motors. Their high power to weight ratio, high speed, control of speed and torque, high efficiency and low maintenance means that Precision Microdrives’ range of Brushless Motors are found in many applications such as power tools, safety mechanisms, conveyor belts, automation actuation and robotics.

Applications & CASE STUDIES
With their long service life and efficiency, brushless motors are useful for many different applications.
Brushless motor for road crossing system
A rotating cone device was to be fitted below the crossing signal unit, to aid visually impaired users use of the crossing.
The in-house design team had generated a gearbox with a brushless out- runner motor for longevity
PMD firstly reviewed the Traffic Open Products and Specification (TOPAS) regulations, which provide the necessary detail on conformity. We then married the TOPAS requirements with the client’s needs on dimensions, part sizes, screen usage, environment, electrical input and output demands.
Working as an extended team to the client’s R&D facility, we developed a unit that consisted of screw fit nylon cones, mounting bracket, brushless motor, gearbox and electronic interface that satisfied the tight dimensional specifications required.
Brushless motors for conveyor belts
Smarter Power Tools
Brushless motors are most commonly found in smart power tools due to their added performance and durability.
Industrial automation design
In manufacturing, brushless motors are often used for motion control, positioning or actuation. These motors are ideal for manufacturing applications due to their characteristics: they are low maintenance and more efficient than brushed motors and have a high power density.
