Precision Microdrives is an ISO 9001:2015 trusted designer and manufacturer of miniature, cost-effective, and well-engineered motors and motor mechanisms.
Our products might look the same as others, but it’s what’s on the inside that makes the difference. That’s a difference that can only come from technical expertise and engineering diligence. We think of our business as providing our industry with a much-needed service that creates and delivers highly specified, reliable motor products, On Time and To Spec.
We develop products from a portfolio of motor and mechanism technologies, and you can find out more about these product and technology areas in this section of our website. For more information on each of our product categories, click the appropriate image below.
Although haptic feedback actually uses vibration motors (both ERMs and LRAs), we have a large amount of haptics specific information and guidance available - including our Haptic Feedback Evaluation Kit (pictured).
Small DC vibration motors make up the majority of our stocked parts, our different ranges are suitable for a huge variety of applications. Sometimes the volume of options available can make design decisions more complicated, so our product guides are designed to introduce each aspect and help navigate the terminology.
From eccentric rotating mass to linear resonant actuator, or coin vibration motors to encapsulated vibration motors, all the main types are covered in these guides. You can also find advice on best practice for PCB vibration motors, guides to brushless vibration motors, and a range of example applications.
Miniature DC gearmotors are available with planetary and spur gearboxes, offering a wide range of torque and speed ratios to support different applications. Our guides introduce you to our product ranges and explore the different types of gearmotors available.
Precision Microdrives' DC gearmotors are some of our most customisable products. By altering the DC motor or the gearbox we are able to deliver specific performance characteristics upon request. In addition, our expert engineers can provide advice or full designs beyond the motor, including custom mechanisms and drive circuitry. This enables our customers to work with a single supplier for specification, design, prototype manufacturing, ongoing supply, and quality control. This dramatically reduces the complexity and costs, whilst mitigating risk of re-work and last-minute design changes.
Haptic feedback uses advanced drive circuitry with highly responsive vibration motors, including linear resonant actuators, to convey complex information to users. In recent history, the popularity of smartphones and tablets have helped users become familiar with touchscreen interfaces, which can now be found on a range of white goods and even car dashboards. Now, with the wearables market growing, miniature and power efficient vibration motors for haptic feedback are increasing demand.
Here you will find our in-depth guide to haptic feedback, including an overview of haptic systems and example applications, along with all the resources for our Haptic Feedback Evaluation Kit. The guides are focused on this single application, so you may also wish to access our vibration motor guides above.
