Founded in 1926 in Stamford, Connecticut, Elinco has decades of experience in providing precision electrical motors. We specialized in fractional horsepower motors during World War II, and our expertise in the field of electric motor design has steadily increased to include a full range of medical applications.
In 1991, Elinco absorbed the Japanese Product Company (JPC) to become Elinco International JPC, Inc. JPC, a prominent western distributor of Japanese-made technology, brought its sales force and distribution channels to help move products from Nidec-Servo, one of Japan’s biggest manufacturers of brushless DC (BLDC) motors. Elinco pioneered the development of the Hysteresis Synchronous motor and later developed and patented the proprietary slotless, brushless DC (SBLDC) motor.
Elinco International JPC has become the industry leader in the development of BLDC motors suitable for many medical applications. Our specially-designed rotor and stator configurations utilize neodymium and non-neodymium alongside vertically-integrated Japanese production techniques to give our motors the edge over competitor’s technology. More of the world’s leading medical manufacturers use Elinco motors for medical devices than any other company.
Medical Applications For Brushless DC Motors and Fans
Elinco specializes in products like BLDC motors, SBLDC motors, stepper motors, fans, and blowers. The technology in these motors is prized by the medical industry for its quiet and unobtrusive operation, safety benefits, and high level of reliability even at an advanced number of cycles. This makes them perfectly-suited for use in many medical applications, including:
- Surgical hand tools
- Dental hand tools
- Infusion pumps
- Syringe pumps
- Dialysis equipment
- Transfusion equipment
- Medicine dispensers
- CT scanners
- Massage chairs
- Motorized hospital beds
- Motorized wheelchairs and powerchairs
- Breathing devices
- Compression socks
- Diagnostic equipment
- Pumps found in surgical equipment
Our BLDC motors ensure high levels of precision while maintaining patient safety. Our fans are used in over 50% of the world’s CT equipment and are found in 3 out of 4 of the top makers of CT scan machines.
Why Elinco’s Brushless DC Motors?
Elinco International JPC specializes in BLDC motors that are perfectly-suited for medical devices. Our fans and motors can be found in equipment from the top medical device manufacturers in the world.
Elinco International JPC offers flexibility, responsiveness, and expertise in the design and fabrication of slotless BLDC motors. There are very few physical dimension restrictions as stator laminations are simple annular rings, inexpensive to make, and high-energy magnets are easily acquirable in slabs and arcs of all sizes. There is freedom to choose mechanical and magnetic air gaps, pole spans, number of poles, back-iron thickness, copper fills, magnetic densities, etc., for each particular application.
