Commercial-Consumer Motion Solutions

Allied Motion provides motion solutions to a wide range of companies throughout the world. Our motion products and systems are employed in aerospace and defense, commercial, and industrial markets. The key industries we serve in those markets are summarized below.

PropPlane

Aircraft Emergency Fuel Boost Pump

Many small propeller-driven aircraft benefit from a two-speed pump that maintains fuel pressure while cruising, but boosts fuel delivery for takeoff and landing.

 

LNG-fill-up

Liquid Petroleum Gas Pump

As environmental concerns rise and the use of alternative fuels is encouraged, Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) systems are increasingly being deployed in taxis, transit buses, and similar vehicle fleets.

Auxiliary Unit Fuel Pump

In the control of gas turbine engines used in aircraft auxiliary power units (APU) that must operate at tens-of-thousands of rpm, fuel pump frequency response and reliability are two key design parameters.

HDTProsArm_3

Bionic Prosthetic Arm

As part of a DARPA program, an Allied Motion customer developed a new anthropomorphic prosthetic limb that gives patients improved, dexterous control of a prosthetic arm and hand, including a sense of touch.

Bionic Prosthetic Knee

Allied Motion’s work with bionic limb manufacturers – contributing our expertise in small, efficient motors – helps them develop advanced powered prosthetics.

Seakeeper_7000_Gyro4

Boat Gyro Stabilization System

Vessel roll caused by rough seas is an experience that can take the fun out of boating. With a dynamic gyro stabilization system on board, however, skippers and passengers can focus on pleasant pursuits on the water.

motorboat-crop-id171572077

Watercraft Hydraulic Power Steering

Manual steering of power boats becomes difficult the larger and more powerful the boat, especially those outfitted with multiple engines.

diesel_exhaust2

CO2 & NOx Emission Reduction Pump

Strict emission regulations like Euro 6 and US Tier 2 Bin 5 have lead to the deployment of Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology for heavy duty, and even passenger, diesel-powered vehicles.

Tennant 7300 KO 300 1024

Commercial Cleaning Equipment Actuators

The commercial maintenance equipment industry demands motors and drives that are not only able to stand up to hard daily use in inhospitable environmental conditions but that are also cost-effective to apply.

Agfa KO 300 1024

Computer-to-Plate Laser Focus System

Constant correction of the writing laser in a fast, high resolution (2400 DPI, 340 LPI) direct computer-to-printing plate system requires an optics focusing system with very high dynamic response capability.

ConstructionEquip

Construction Equipment HVAC Systems

Off-road vehicles like construction equipment require high levels of reliability and durability. Equipment downtime is a very costly event for machines that oftentimes must run 16 hours per day, or more, seven days per week.

Respironics PAP 300 3w

CPAP Respiratory Ventilation Air Pump

Sleep apnea treatment often involves the assistance of Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) respirators.

Dialyses+Patient 3

Dialysis System Pump

Hemodialysis (HD) therapy systems require reliable peristaltic pumps to accurately control the flow of patient’s blood and the dialysis solution through the machine’s dialyzer.

geneva1943

Drive-by-Wire Control System

Drive-by-wire technology, such as used in the Novanta concept car shown here, replaces the heavy, cumbersome power-hungry traditional mechanical and hydraulic components with accurate, efficient electro-mechanical control systems.

FordFocusFCV 3

Fuel Cell Cooling System

Allied Motion has helped to develop advanced vehicle propulsion systems, such as Ford’s Focus FCV (Fuel Cell Vehicle) prototype shown here.

gps-tractor-steering

GPS-based Agricultural Vehicle Steering

One of the most successful tools available for modern precision farming is the GPS-based steering system.

bluetruck2

Heavy-Duty Truck HVAC Air Moving Systems

HVAC systems in “million-mile” trucks are required above all else to be reliable and quiet.

Dragster_iStock_000004555683Small

High Performance Racing Fuel Pump

High performance vehicles such as drag racers require consistent high rates of fuel delivery to avoid mid-track “lay down” due to a lack of sufficient fuel.

CBR600RR Croft

High Performance Racing Motorcycle Alternator

Minimizing total engine mass in racing motorcycles is of paramount importance because ever extra ounce reduces acceleration, and, hence, performance.

Midmark 623_MID_3-4_Right_Canyon-H

Patient Handling Equipment

Patient comfort is enhanced, especially for children and the elderly, when they are better accommodated by powered patient handling equipment such as the exam table shown here, where patients can sit as in a chair and then are gently oriented for examination.

ConMediSys_HTB_Lg

Patient Transport Equipment

Developers of a new-concept patient transfer bed – a motorized gurney with a built-in transfer belt that enables a single caregiver to transfer a patient within a medical facility without having to physically lift the patient – sought Allied Motion’s assistance to motorize the 1400 lb. bed.

Stature 3GRXBASE_400_B

Power Wheelchair Drive

Medical mobility equipment such as power wheelchairs, scooters, stair lifts, and elevators require dependable, quiet DC or brushless DC motors and gear motors for reliable, long life operation.

DaneTech_QKM3_9633_052606E-2

Powered Pusher/Puller Cart Assistant

Small, powered pusher and tugger vehicles are being used increasingly in commercial and industrial settings for their productivity gains, and the worker safety and injury reduction they afford.

Savaria Curved_1

Powered Stair Lift

All powered medical access and mobility equipment like the stair lift shown here is expected to operate quietly and reliably over many years of numerous daily cycles.

RV 1

Recreational Vehicle Convenience Systems

Modern RVs and personal luxury buses pack a lot of “at-home” conveniences into a small space through the use of electrically-powered systems like slide-outs, bed stows and lifts, jacking and awning systems, and heating/cooling and water pumping systems.

Train Door

Train Door Operators

Allied Motion is a leading supplier of actuator motors and gear motors to tough applications such as door operators in the light rail and passenger train market.
