MICROMO, a member of the global FAULHABER Group, has been a full-service, value-added partner to the medical and laboratory industry in North America for custom micro motion solutions for over 50 years.
MICROMO offers excellence in micro motor and encoder technology as well as design customization. MICROMO brings together value-added services and cutting-edge technologies from around the world through high-efficiency, high-performance rotary and linear offerings such as brushed, brushless, stepper, thin-profile DC, piezoelectric and linear motors for diverse applications. MICROMO provides full-service design, sourcing and manufacturing capability on a global basis to deliver benchmark motion solutions.
Decades ago in Germany, it all started with the FAULHABER coil, the landmark invention by Dr Fritz Faulhaber. The self-supporting ironless rotor coil design paved the way for a new industry that produces millions of motors today.
Coreless DC motors
A Coreless DC motor from MICROMO differs from conventional iron rotor DC motors in that they are equipped with an ironless, self-supporting, skew-wound copper coil. Because of this construction, the rotor is very light and yields a low moment of inertia. The rotor rotates smoothly without cogging.
Brushless DC motors
With MICROMO’s brushless DC motor, the ironless, self-supporting, skew-wound copper coil is a component of the stator. The mechanical commutation system in these motors is replaced by an integrated sensorless electronic unit with speed control. This makes MICROMO’s brushless DC motor a compact, reliable and extremely durable drive solution – perfect for continuous operation.
High-performance one and two-phase stepper motors
MICROMO has a diverse range of extremely high speed, high performance stepper motors. The stepper motors are light and compact, and have low current consumption.
MICROMO represents PiezoMotor (Sweden) products in North America and partners closely with the PiezoMotor team to provide piezo motor solutions to the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) market.
Linear DC servomotors
MICROMO offers the QUICKSHAFT® LM0830, LM1247 and LM2070 linear DC servomotors for a wide variety of applications in markets such as medical devices, robotics and defense. High precision, high performance and rapid acceleration are key benefits of the motor series.
Drive and electronic products for medical devices
In addition to the widest range of DC and piezo motor products, MICROMO offers a comprehensive range of encoders, gearheads, controllers, micromechanical systems and a variety of other drive and electronic products.
