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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
