Previously discrete components like electric motors, gearing and controls are now converging with software and communication protocols into value-added mechatronic systems. This presents new growth potential for current manufacturers of small motors and/or gears and motor controls. But, that doesn't mean one has to master all the elements alone. We can identify and facilitate relationships with the partners that will complement your products and allow you to profit from this paradigm shift.
Aside from not leaving money on the table in your core business, there are other exciting developments from which the properly prepared motors and drives manufacturer can benefit. In the near term, electric motor actuation is rapidly overcoming inherent faults and limitations in hydaulics and pneumatics. Not far off, motors and drives will see disruptive new technology development and production economics coming as a side benefit to the forecast explosive electric vehicle growth.
