Gearmotor that’s smaller than a postage stamp

EMS has launched what must be the smallest production volume motor and planetary gearhead ever. The new Minimotor device measures just 1.9mm in diameter.

Designed to offer a solution to growing demand in extremely high precision activities such as laser tools, medical instruments and lens positioning, the new Microdrive System incorporates a brushless DC micromotor, a planetary gearhead and a speed controller.
