A Leader From the Very Beginning
BEI Kimco Magnetics is a brand of Custom Sensors & Technologies (CST). BEI Kimco Magnetics was founded in 1974 and is a leading manufacturer of high speed, fractional horsepower brushless bldc motors, voice coil actuators, smart voice coil actuators and bldc motor controllers for the Transportation, Industrial, and Aerospace & Defense markets. These products are used across a wide range of applications including medical and scientific, factory and office automation, optics, semiconductor/ electronics, military, aviation, space systems, and security. Kimco merges leading-edge capabilities and cost-effective manufacturing know-how with highly customized applications expertise.
With a time-to-market as short as eight weeks, BEI Kimco Magnetics has maintained innovative, high quality products and holds numerous electro-magnetic patents. At BEI Kimco, they never lose sight of the value of personal service, expert design engineering, and product innovation.
Optimizing Motion Control Design
At BEI Kimco Magnetics, they integrate their expertise with customer requirements in motion control devices. Latest technologies range from Smart Actuators, to SERVO-SMART actuator systems, providing direct drive actuation for applications from factory automation, to low-bandwidth torquers, ideal for gimbal drives, robotics and other stabilized platform applications. It means faster, quieter, more reliable devices for semiconductor and medical equipment where throughput and life itself are critical to success. They remain deeply committed to solving your application challenges through technological innovation. Take their Spherical Voice Coil Actuator for example – Roll Pitch and Yaw motion in one device. Think of the possibilities. With their brushless DC noise attenuation patent – perhaps you may find it to be the right answer.
Answering Customer Demands
BEI Kimco Magnetics is dedicated to taking technology to the limit. At their Business Development & Technology Center, they challenge themselves to create innovative ways to meet new application needs. BEI Kimco has developed brushless DC motors to operate virtually noise-free, ideal for user confidence in quiet operating systems and patient care applications.
At BEI Kimco, we manufacture a comprehensive line of high performance fractional horsepower brushless DC Motors (BLDC) that are currently manufactured in sizes from 1.1" up to 20” in O.D. diameter and capable of operating at speeds in excess of 70K RPM.
We also manufacture voice coil Actuators (VCA) available in both Linear and Rotary versions. Linear versions offer strokes up to 4” and forces up to 225 Lbs. Rotary versions are available with up to 30 degrees of total excursion angle and a maximum torque of 1000 oz-in. Both offer infinite positioning capabilities for your application.
Industry's leading engineers and designers depend on our support for fast, accurate and cost-effective motion control solutions. BEI Kimco has been awarded 14 patents in Voice Coil Actuator (VCA) and Brushless DC Motor (BLDC) Technology. BEI Kimco Magnetics has merged leading-edge capabilities and cost-effective manufacturing know-how with highly personalized applications expertise. This combination has propelled BEI Kimco into market dominance where we have remained a leading manufacturer of brushless DC motors and linear and rotary voice coil actuators for over 38 years.
