Applied Motion Products provides a series of integrated motors featuring multi-turn, absolute encoders that do not require batteries or external power to track position when the motor is powered off. The new encoders, called TruCount™ Encoders, make use of a special energy harvesting technique to enable battery-less functionality.
SCHAUMBURG, IL (May 2020) – In a collaborative effort to support the healthcare industry during this COVID-19 crisis, HEIDENHAIN is working with Applied Motion Products, Inc. to expedite critical components to a large manufacturer of ventilators. Now in various stages of delivery, the Applied Motion Products’ StepSERVO™ Integrated Motors equipped with HEIDENHAIN’s RENCO encoders are making their way into the production of 5,000 new life-saving medical devices.
Applied Motion Products solved heat problems associated with a peristaltic pump system that supplies materials to a bioreactor by replacing open-loop step motors with closed-loop step motors. A peristaltic pump, with internal tubing that separates media from pump components, offers a sanitary method to supply the bioreactor with various fluids to grow cell cultures in the development of new medicines. Step motors are used to drive the pump head, compressing and releasing the pump tubing to move media into the bioreactor chamber.
