Brushless Motors with Integral Motion Controls Benefit Medical Product Development

June 5, 2012 7:25 am | by John Morehead | Comments

Product development in medical devices is rapidly embracing the distributed motion benefits of brushless servo motors with integral motion controls for many reasons. The most important is that smart servo motors allow medical device developers to concentrate on and grow their core competencies without having to get into the minutiae of motion control, a specialized field of engineering unto itself.

Living in the Material World
