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
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
