Pro-Dex Micro Motors|
The Power of Focus
At Micro Motors, we focus on one thing: the creation of power. In the form of
electric and pneumatic motors and handpieces. Our medical and dental customers
take the power we create, and turn those products into proven and profitable winners.
But we're more than just an OEM manufacturer.
We create design power as well. By listening to our customers, we've created designs that meet specific needs, answer precise demands and fit within explicit pricing and quality standards. We become your virtual engineering team, providing services that reach far beyond traditional customer-supplier relationships.
The Power of Design
At Micro Motors, we start with a proven group of talented engineers. Professionals
who have designed some of the most innovative solutions used in the medical and
dental industries today. Our design team is an effective blend of experience and
energy - assembled to give you more engineering talent than you've ever seen from
an OEM partner.
The Power to Build
40,000 square-foot facility is located in the California biotech
heartland of Orange County. With state-of-the-art manufacturing
equipment and experienced programmers, we create products that
are known through the medical device communities as reliable,
high-quality and consistent. But it's our commitment to providing
on-target solutions for our customers that allows us to grow.
Stringent product design needs have dictated use of a reliable power source that is small in size yet extremely powerful. Micro Motors understood this. It has pioneered, developed and manufactured miniature but powerful air motors for medical, dental, robotic and industrial use for nearly three decades. Today, hundreds of thousands are in use worldwide. They are vital components of products produced by original equipment manufacturers and private label distributors. Not surprisingly, numerous motors are still at work after nearly 30 years of continuous service.
The product: general dimensions and specifications
Our motors meet demanding needs of torque and speed. At only 3/4 of an inch diameter,
these precision motors consume only 4.8 CFM of air at 90 psi, while producing
stall torques from 3.5 in-ozs. to 9 ft-lbs. at free speeds of 50,000 RPM to 1
RPM. Motors available with either direct drive or internal gearing; gear reduction
from 4:1 to 1000:1 is available.
Micro Motors is capable of customizing air motors to fit design specifications
Our competent and experienced staff can respond to your design needs and modify
air motors to fit virtually any small size, high power application. Specific requirements
for mounting, autoclaving, and speed to torque ratios can be accommodated. Special
pneumatic tools and custom machined parts produced in small to large quantities
are offered. Design, engineering and production are under one roof.
Tough quality control standards are in place; FDA and GMP codes and standards
We observe demanding quality control standards from initial machining to finishing
through to assembly. Ultra sensitive equipment enables technicians to produce
machine parts to exact design specs. All finished products pass torque and speed
tests before shipment. Micro Motors is ISO 9001 Certified, as well as registered
with the FDA and adheres to Good Manufacturing Practices. (GMP)
How our miniature air motor benefits a designer or user
Operates on compressed air, nitrogen, or other inert gases at pressures
up to 160 PSI.
Precision air motor of aluminum and stainless steel construction provides
reliable power and a long service life.
Advanced rotor blade design and a highly polished cylinder permit continuous
Balanced rotor positioned between precision ball bearings virtually eliminates
friction and wear.
Motors remain cool, even when operated under continuous load.
Repeated stalling*, instant reversing will not harm the motor.
Spark free operation is suitable for use in contaminated, wet or explosive
Instant on . . . instant off . . . no wind-up or coasting.
Hardened planetary gear system provides increased torque transmission capabilities
and long life.
Lower air consumption than larger motors conserves energy.
