Vaughan, Ontario, Canada — Motion Control Components — COVID-19 has caused a significant shortage of ventilators for the most seriously ill patients. We are facing a global shortage of equipment and have precious little time to respond.

Electromate is a mechanical ventilator component supplier and works with a number of manufacturing partners that supply crucial components needed to build more ventilators.

These include:

  • HMI’s
  • Linear guides
  • Linear actuators
  • Screw assemblies
  • Compact gearboxes
  • High efficiency servo & stepper motors
  • Programmable motion controllers and drives

Our team of motion design experts are located all across Canada and are available right now to help you with any electro-mechanical ventilator design. If you are working on a ventilator involving rotary, linear, or any other motion, we will provide immediate help with electro-mechanical engineering and component sourcing. Contact us today.

We are already working with ventilator and respirator companies and encourage any other businesses working on COVID-19 solutions to reach out to us.

All inquiries regarding ventilator components or any other equipment to help battle COVID-19 are given utmost priority. We can help to optimize your design quickly and provide fast turnaround proposals as requested. Additionally, we are able to meet high production demands in a very short time by utlilizing ‘Medical Fast Track Programs’ from maxon, and other vendors.

Many of the products we sell to the medical technology sector have ISO 13485 certification. This certification confirms that these products adhere to the fundamental requirements of medical technology and that all processes and procedures are documented, thereby guaranteeing traceability.

In addition to helping with the design and acquisition of critical components used in ventilators and respirators, we also want to make you aware of initiatives that you may be able to utilize. Please read below to learn more about these programs and how you can assist with the COVID-19 cause.


The Montreal General Hospital Foundation, in collaboration with the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC), is launching a global innovation challenge, backed by a prize of $200,000 CAD. They are calling for teams to design a simple, low-cost, easy-to-manufacture and easy-to-maintain ventilator which could be deployed anywhere needed to save lives.

MIT has launched an emergency research project with a team of Engineers and American clinicians to address the question:

Is it possible to safely ventilate a COVID-19 patient by automatically actuating a manual resuscitator?

Their process in approaching this question is to first identify the minimum requirements for a low-cost ventilator, based on the collective wisdom of many clinicians, design against these requirements, conduct immediate testing, report the results, iterate and facilitate discussion.

Motion Control – High Performance Ultra Compact Stepper Motor Positioning Stage From Equipment Solutions!

motion control miniature stage

motion control company


Sunnyvale, CA, – — The motion control SMS12 Linear Stepper Motor stage is an ultra compact stage that provides up to 12 millimeters of linear motion. This stage offers near sub-micron resolution with the ability to accelerate a small load at 2G’s. A non-contact home sensor provides a reference position with repeatability of a couple microns. It was specifically developed for optical applications requiring both high precision and modest-speed positioning over a short to medium stroke. The SMS12 is well suited for optical focusing and other micropositioning applications such as scanning interferometry, surface structure analysis, disk drive testing, autofocus systems, confocal microscopy, bio-technology, semiconductor test equipment.



  • Translation 43µm/step
  • 0.67µm @ 64µstep/step
  • Maximum Travel 12mm
  • Maximum Acceleration 2G
  • Maximum Velocity 250mm/sec
  • Maximum Load Capacity 13kg
  • Maximum Moment Load 1.8kg
  • Positioning Accuracy ±2µm
  • Bidirectional Repeatability ±1µm
  • Homing Repeatability ±1µm
  • Motor Amps/Phase 0.3
  • Dimensions 39.1 x 39.1 x 31.75mm

The SMS12 can be ordered with an optional stepper motor controller that is nearly the same size a the SMS12 itself. Only raw power and a simple RS232/RS485 communications line is needed to completely control this high-resolution stage.

Motion Control – Closed-Loop Linear Stage with Integrated Stepper Motor+Encoder+Controller

Servo2Go - Motion Control Belt Driven Stage from Zaber


Greenville, DE — — has just added Zaber’s A-BLQ-E Series Closed-Loop Motion Control Belt-Driven Linear Stages with Integrated Stepper Motor/Encoder/Controller to its broad range of high performance cost effective linear slide and actuator family.

Zaber’s A-BLQ-E series products are computer controlled belt-driven linear stages with integrated stepper motors and controllers. A built-in rotary encoder allows closed-loop operation with slip/stall recovery features. They are stand-alone devices requiring only a standard 48 volt power supply for operation. A knob at the end of the stage permits smooth manual control; press and hold to switch between velocity and displacement mode and turn to move the stage.

The stages connect to the RS-232 port of any computer and can be daisy-chained with up to 254 A or T-series devices per chain. Convenient 6-pin mini din cables on the unit allow for direct interconnection between units in close proximity. For longer distances, standard cable extensions can be used.

With travel lengths up to 2.1 m, and a maximum speed of 2.0 m/s, A-BLQ-E stages are perfect for rapid positioning over large distances. Their high load capacity and excellent torsional stiffness make them suitable for large payloads, while 10 µm repeatability allows these stages to be used for precise positioning as well.


• 70, 145, 295, 445, 595, 1045, 1495, 2095 mm travel

• Up to 2 m/s speed, 18 N thrust, and 20 kg load capacity

• Encoder position feedback with slip/stall detection & automatic recovery

• Built-in controller daisy chains with other A and T-series products

THE BEARING SYSTEM – Why is this important? It has everything to do with Life and
Performance characteristics of this solid, simple, yet superior actuator.

The SlipStream Belt Actuator is not only a graceful and aesthetically pleasing design, it’s got
some muscle under the hood! The SlipStream rides on the latest profile rail, caged ball technology.
The Profile Rail system takes the same loads in all 4 mounting positions: up, down, left and right.
Dependent upon load, the bearing system can see dynamic speeds to 5 meters per second.
The caged ball system also facilitates higher acceleration.

1 newton meter .73756 pound-force foot
1 kilogram-newton meter 737.56 pound-force foot

As a unit of torque, one foot-pound is the torque created
by one pound force acting at a perpendicular distance of one foot from a pivot point.

1 foot-pound is equivalent to: 1.3558 newton meter
