Design is at the heart of what we do at Precision Microdrives.

Developing specifications in partnership with our customers, and then designing an exact solution for their application, with consistency, quality, and efficiency.

We understand the challenges motors present, and enjoy providing solutions. We can reducing your cost and exposure to risk, through innovative and optimised design, specific to your application.

Rigorous quality control across application, validation, debugging and testing.

Our knowledge base is specific to motors and mechanisms, but our expertise covers mechanical, electronic, software, mechatronic, and mass-production engineering. Since 2004 we have focused solely on designing and manufacturing miniature motors and mechanisms, for countless applications in a wide array of industries.

ISO 9001 is just the foundation.

What we’re really proud of is how efficiently we pass detailed customer audits. But that’s really no surprise, because we share your values, and have built our systems to a common high standard.  We protect your intellectual property and manage your risk exposure through detailed planning, lifecycle management and statistical controls.

Exceptional results every time. 

Our dedication to quality consistency, focus on improved performance and continued commitment to investing in advanced testing technology, makes our products and solutions robust and reliable.

World class engineering support team.

Our company culture is built around fostering long-term partnerships which engender trust and confidence.

We strive to have honest, open communication and our vision is to take the pain away from working with motors and mechanisms.  We don’t just provide a solution and walk away. You will receive our continued support at every step.


Working with Precision Microdrives

Our clients

Our clients are designing a new product or undertaking a lifecycle refresh of an existing one. They are using the opportunity to embrace value-engineering instead of over-engineering.

This doesn’t mean low standards. Instead, our clients are developing a specification with care, designing and manufacturing with diligence and delivering precisely.

Our motors and mechanisms are fit for world-class products at a price that enables straightforward commercial success.

Our vision

Like the products themselves, a motor and mechanism manufacturer has many moving parts. The technology, whilst mature, is still complicated and underpinned by many engineering disciplines.

We offer technical support, guidance and a real partnership to innovators who want to manage and reduce their risk and maximise commercial success.

Founded in 2004 to make sourcing of proven electro-mechanical mechanisms in Asia easier and more reliable, our business is built on a desire to help like-minded people use miniature motors in their application.

Our objective

The more you embrace a partnership with us the more value and commercial success we can bring to your business.

We can take on the design and manufacture of your application’s electromechanical mechanism with significant experience. We can save you from the pitfalls and risks in working with these types of products. We can integrate modern and proven technology in highly cost-effective packages.

This will help you focus on developing the technology and features that will set your application apart from your competition. The more we can help you focus on maximising your value the more we prosper together as partners.  


Far more than your average motor supplier

We use our proven technology to solve your motor problems, reducing costs and managing your risk through optimised design.
