Stay Ahead With The Latest Technology For 3D Printing

3D printing has turned the concept of manufacturing on its head. Offering more cost-effective, more flexible, and higher throughout solutions seemingly every day, additive manufacturing is impacting fields from medical technology, space exploration, and food, to music, building, and fashion.

Performance Motion Devices has been involved in the 3D printing revolution from the start, counting as its OEM clients some of the largest and best known 3D printing equipment companies in the world. 3D printing manufacturers rely on PMD's experience in motion profiling, torque control, advanced servo compensation schemes, data trace, and field-oriented control (FOC) for maximum throughput and maximum reliability.

Performance Motion Devices has the motion control components and software you need to design and build your 3-D printing system faster, with more performance, and at a lower cost. We understand your challenges and offer a range of easy-to-deploy motion control solutions, such as integrated circuits (ICs), digital drives, digital amplifiers, and motion control boards that will meet your application requirements and help you outcompete the other guys.


Wondering how to control motion for a 3D printing system you want to create?

Contact us and tell us about it. We'd love to explore how our custom or turn-key ICs, modules, and boards, can best meet your 3D Printer design challenge.

3D Motion Control

Fast, synchronized contouring of servo or step motors

Our multi-axis motion controls ICs make synchronization between axes a snap. Ask us about custom versions of our IC products that provide continuous path generation and cross-linked servo compensation terms for ultra-precise XYZ path control. PMD's single-axis ICs such as the MC58113 provide a hardware synch signal, making it possible to use these products for coordinated multi-axis applications as well.

"PMD Corp. has… allowed us to build and expand into the midlevel of the 3D printing marketplace."

S-Curve Profiles - A Deep Dive

S-curve motion profiles add “smoothing” segments to the traditional 3-phase trapezoidal profile. Why is this better? The answer is beyond the motor, at the load itself.
