This bipolar chopper driver chip, NP3775, and state logic chip (phase distribution chip), NP7380, are offered for use with the company’s tin-can rotary and linear stepper motors. The firm provides motors, electronics, and engineering support for a complete stepper motor drive system.
The QDM brushless series of gear pumps combines the best principles of gear and magnetically driven pumps. Engineered without any drive seals, the pumps offer a leak free, pulse-less, magnetically driven operation.
The Model 775 filling valve is a pneumatically operated spool type valve that can accurately dispense medium to high viscosity fluids. It is capable of dispensing shots of less than 0.01 to over 50 ml and features an adjustable pull-back for crisp shut-off.
The corrosion-resistant Type 568 butterfly valve’s lug style design is intended specifically for dead-end service and fully pressure rated at 150 psi to allow for easy system expansion to the pipeline without the expense of system shutdown.
The Model 2200-033-011 automatic Snuf-Bak dispense valve is ideal for high volume fluid control and fast shut-off of viscous materials such as polyurethanes, epoxies, silicones, greases, and various cohesive (stringy) and thixotropic adhesives and sealants.

Like other fiber lasers from the company, the VFL-P-592 Series fiber laser is easy to use, maintenance-free, highly reliable, and air-cooled.
For manufacturers of combination products, avoiding potential pitfalls is significantly more complex than with traditional medical devices due to the inclusion of a drug or biologic element. Therefore, companies need to ensure they have addressed concerns early in the material selection process.
Precision is of paramount importance in the manufacture of medical devices. Few technologies demonstrate the ability to achieve the necessary degree of accuracy more effectively than laser solutions.
As pressure mounts to improve product development times while maintaining low costs, device designers are constantly seeking tools that can enhance the efficiency of their processes. This search is even greater when developing combination products due to the addition of the biologic or drug element.
