The coronavirus outbreak has created an increasing number of challenges to individuals, families, communities, and companies. The incredible worldwide response to this challenge is truly inspiring, especially those individuals and organizations who are rapidly developing solutions to identify, treat, and prevent the spread of the virus. Performance Motion Devices, Inc. (PMD) is proud to be a contributor to this effort.
The rapid spread of COVID-19 has put many of the products built by PMD's customers on the front line of the response. Below are just some of the critical applications utilizing PMD ICs, modules, and boards, that our customers design and produce to help in this worldwide effort.
Some of these systems include:
PMD partners with companies both in the US and worldwide that build the medical and laboratory automation equipment used to treat those suffering from COVID-19.
These life-saving applications include:
PMD works extensively with an array of pioneering companies that are building the next generation of systems that will be able to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and future biological threats.
These systems include:
At PMD we are honored and humbled to be a part of this vital effort, and redouble our commitment to work closely with all our customers to provide them with motion control products that meet and exceed their exacting performance and reliability standards.
Pumps that move liquid precisely are at the heart of a broad array of patient treatment devices and laboratory automation. The first part of our fluid handling series will outline the keys to machine design success. Get an understanding of what type of fluid pumps will work best in your motion control application.
Motion applications such as patient fluid processing, drug delivery, and laboratory diagnostics require precision and safety control. High-performance motion control solutions deliver high reliability, programmability and precision control for applications that use peristaltic pumps.
It’s hard to keep up with the latest advances in motion control, especially as it relates to medical applications. This paper explores four important trends that go beyond raw performance to uncover capabilities that designers can utilize in their design projects.
Microscope X‐Y stages need fast, smooth, and accurate motion for highest performance. A popular way to maximize accuracy, smoothness, and speed of microscope X-Y stage positioning is to try positioning with dual-loop encoder configuration and S-curve motion profiling.
Miniaturization allows a range of medical devices to be both portable and battery-powered. But, what is the next big frontier for motion controllers? Listen as a panel of experts discuss the past, present, and future of medical devices and equipment design.
Controlling the amount of liquid deposited is critical in applications where there are “Keep-Out-Zones.” This new paper demonstrates dispensing solutions where the required motion accuracy can only be achieved with a closed loop step motor control architecture.
