Custom direct drive motor systems
Applimotion offers custom drive motor systems with precision encoders and bearings in unique packages. Design engineering services will integrate ULT, UTH, UTS, and UTO frameless motor kits into application-specific direct drive motors.
Applimotion offers custom drive motor systems with precision encoders and bearings in unique packages. Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have used Applimotion ULT, UTH, UTS, and UTO frameless motor kits for designing direct drive systems. Applimotion now offers design engineering services to incorporate these frameless motor kits into application-specific direct drive motors.
Whether a system needs special mechanical requirements, special sealing, Autoclave heat cycles, or another harsh environment, Applimotion can create a solution with one of its frameless motor kits inside. Applimotion engineers can provide guidance through the selection of feedback, bearings, and precision mechanical attributes.
Direct drive motors are finding their way into many new applications as designers see the advantages in reliability, precision, and performance, compared to traditional solutions. If a direct-drive motor is the right solution, but don’t have the resources in house, Applimotion can create an affordable direct drive solution that fits the application.
Applimotion Inc., located in Loomis, CA, makes brushless motors and motor components. Applimotion engineers can create application specific motors for low-volume performance-driven application, produced at its CA facility, or using high-volume value-driven off-shore manufactured motors.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
