Lin Engineering — a designer and manufacturer of precision electric motors and motion systems — is prioritizing the production and supply of motors to support companies making medical devices critical in the treatment of COVID-19 patients.
Morgan Hill, Calif.-based Lin Engineering said last week its highest priority is supplying motors to the makers of medical ventilators and related equipment needed for respiratory care as well as devices to diagnose and treat COVID-19 patients.
Depending on the design, ventilators employ an array of motors for this function, including:
- Hybrid stepper motors.
- Standard bldc motors.
- Frameless bldc motors.
- Slotless motors.
- Coreless bldc motors.
