High Efficiency Motors for Insulin Pumps

Challenge 
More and more patients are switching to an insulin pump delivery system to provide customized, fast, reliable, and precise insulin delivery in a small lightweight package. Portescap’s compact and efficient motors and custom gearing offer a miniature motion solution able to operate longer on standard commercial batteries. High-count miniature encoders control the accurate delivery of insulin down to micro units for continuous delivery, as well as during larger bolus insulin delivery.

Benefits 
  • High-efficiency solutions for longer battery operating life
  • High-count encoder for accurate fluid delivery
  • Precious metal commutation for increased reliability
  • Durable mechanical designs for long device life
  • High-level motion integration
  • Low-noise solution

Customization Options 
  • Integrated encoder gearhead solution for compactness
  • Ball bearing options for longer life under side loads
  • Electrical magnetic coil optimization for precise torque and speed performance
  • Mechanical customizations for top-level device integration
  • Fully customizable 8mm Brushless DC gearmotors available on request. Contact us to discuss with a Design Engineer today.

Miniature Motors for Home / Ambulatory Infusion Pumps

Challenge 
Caregivers and patients depend on home and ambulatory infusion pumps to provide continued drug therapy in the comfort of the patient's home or on-the-go, avoiding costly in-patient care. These pumps must be small, cost-effective, and easy to use, often without the assistance of a medical professional.

Portescap's powerful and efficient precision motors allow for compact pump designs that can still handle the flow rates of hospital setting infusions, and provide long battery life for mobility both inside and outside of the home. Low noise gearheads are available for patient comfort and discretion, and feedback solutions allow for cost effective but precise delivery control.

Benefits 
  • High-efficiency motors for longer battery life and increased mobility and freedom
  • High power density for more compact and mobile pumps
  • Low noise for comfort while sleeping and discretion while on-the-go
  • Increased reliability thanks to precious metal commutation
Customization Options 
  • Compact integrated encoder and gearhead solutions
  • Ball bearing options for longer life under high side loads
  • Electrical magnetic coil customization to accommodate specific power inputs
  • High-level assembly integration
  • Custom output shaft and housing interface features
  • Plastic and helical gears for noise reduction
  • Custom integrated feedback solutions for cost effective but precise delivery control

Miniature Motors for Hospital & Clinical Infusion Pumps

Challenge 
Clinicians and patients rely on pumps for safe and accurate administration of nutrients and medications. Along with the ability to continuously deliver fluids in flows ranging from a few milliliters to liters per hour, motorized pumps also provide repeatable and precise delivery.

Portescap's high efficiency and high torque density motor solutions help reduce size and increase the back-up battery life for more mobile clinical pumps. High quality components and optimized designs increase the useful life of the pump for lower cost of care. Additionally, Portescap's miniature high-count encoders allow for accurate and repetitive delivery of fluid. High-strength customized gearing reduces noise levels for patient comfort during the day or while sleeping.

Benefits 
  • High count encoders for improved fluid delivery accuracy
  • Longer life for lower average cost of care thanks to precious metal commutation
  • Greater power density for smaller pump designs
  • Low noise for quiet device operation
  • High efficiency motors for longer back-up battery life

Customization Options 
  • Compact integrated encoder and gearhead solutions
  • Ball bearing options for longer life under side loads
  • Electrical magnetic coil customization to accommodate specific power inputs
  • High-level assembly integration
  • Custom output shaft and housing interface features
  • Plastic or helical gears for noise reduction

Miniature Motors for Auto-Injectors

Challenge 
For long-term but intermittent dose regimens, drug therapy patients require small, discreet, and reliable injection devices that can be taken with them as they go about their day. Because high viscosity drugs or large volume injections require either a high force to be applied or long injection times, motorized auto-injectors are often preferred over manual syringes.

Portescap's high power density motors and linear motion assemblies help reduce the size of the auto-injector while maintaining high force for faster injection times or smaller diameter and less painful needles. Portescap's low noise gearboxes also improve discretion while administering a dose in public settings. Their high efficiency also provides greater freedom by increasing battery life or further reducing size by shrinking the battery.

Benefits 
  • High power density motors for smaller and more ergonomic auto-injector designs
  • Quality components for longer life and lower average cost of care
  • Low noise for discreet administration in public settings
  • Efficient motors for longer battery life or reduced charge time
  • Low starting voltage for low voltage battery operation

Customization Options 
  • Compact integrated linear solutions with gearing and encoder
  • Plastic or helical gears for additional noise reduction
  • Electrical magnetic coil customization to accommodate specific power inputs
  • High-level assembly integration
  • Custom output shaft and housing interface features
  • Ball bearing options for longer life under side loads
  • Cost optimized designs for high volume manufacturability

Ambulatory Enteral Feeding Pumps

Challenge 
For patients that require enteral feeding for their entire nutrition or hydration intake, feeding can require a substantial portion of the day. Ambulatory enteral feeding pumps allow these patients to continue their daily activities at the same time as they are receiving the nutrients they require. Portescap's high power density coreless DC brushed Athlonix motors allow pump designers to improve patient freedom and discretion. The high power density ironless rotor reduces the size and weight of the motor itself, and its high efficiency allows for smaller batteries to further reduce the weight of the pump. Low noise spur gearboxes reduce the sound produced by the pump for both patient comfort and discretion in public settings.

Benefits 
  • High-efficiency motors for longer battery life and increased mobility and freedom
  • High power density for more compact and mobile pumps
  • Low noise for comfort while sleeping and discretion while on-the-go
  • Increased reliability and lifetime due to precious metal commutation
  • Cost-optimized design

Customization Options 
  • Compact integrated encoder and gearhead solutions
  • Ball bearing options for longer life under high side loads
  • Electrical magnetic coil customization to accommodate specific power inputs
  • High-level assembly integration
  • Custom output shaft and housing interface features
  • Plastic and helical gears for noise reduction
  • Backdriving safety (one way bearing ratchet option)
