Motion Control – COVID-19 – Linear Actuators for Ventilators 

motion control ventilator actuators

 

MotiCont-Logo

Van Nuys, CA – Motion Control – During the COVID-19 pandemic engineers and designers of medical devices are working 24/7 to design and manufacture critically needed life support and testing equipment. Moticont has a proud history of supplying precise, reliable voice coil linear actuators used in medical ventilators and respirators, and will be especially quick to respond to the need for actuators in OEM quantities as well as requests for custom prototypes.

Moticont manufactures three lines of linear voice coil actuators that are ideally suited for medical ventilators, respirators, and dispensing of reagents. Each of the pictured actuators are clean reliable voice coil actuators with a guided shaft that is designed to couple directly to the load and therefore has zero backlash. The three lines are the: GVCM series, SDLM series, and DDLM series.

Each of these lines of low cost, clean, brushless, compact actuators features attributes critical to Life Support equipment: Very low Mean-Time-Between-Failures (MTBF), extremely efficient, low hysteresis for greater repeatability, highly controllable force, stroke length, and speed, low noise, maintenance free, and can be easily integrated into new or existing applications. The GVCM series and DDLM series of Linear Voice Coil Actuators can be used with a position sensor and the SDLM series of Linear Voice Coil Actuators has an integral encoder. The DDLM and SDLM actuators are fully enclosed actuators.

For assistance in selecting the best linear actuator for a specific application such as: Life support in ventilators or respirators, reagent dispensing, sampling, sorting, or assembly, contact the Moticont sales team.
