Our People & Process
When a dream team of precision motion experts engages in a proven development process that minimizes risks and maximizes innovation, the result is a custom solution that exceeds all expectations.
Precision Motion Experts
Our project managers are empowered to engage the internal experts best suited to your challenge. Our engineers and designers – with, on average, 10 years of tenure at Dover Motion – have deep expertise in our core technologies, but also in a wide range of ancillary technologies. They are well versed in control theory, and optimize servo tuning to extract maximum performance, even in the presence of structural resonances. We design and build our own linear motors, optimized with sophisticated magnetic FEA, and designed to fit into challenging spaces and budgets. Other areas of strength include:
• Nanometer-level position stability
• Extremely fast move and settle
• High-speed constant velocity motion
• Compact, high force linear motors
• Custom incremental and absolute encoders
• High servo bandwidth
• Low-cost, miniature stepper and servo drives
• Suppressing structural resonances
• R-Theta gantry control
• Advanced magnetic topologies
• Active vibration isolation
The breadth of industries we serve also allows us to apply best practices and novel thinking from one realm to another to deliver a competitive advantage.
A Proven Process
Each project starts with a feasibility and planning phase, where we carefully listen to your requirements, collaboratively explore solutions, and select the optimal one. In the development phase, we prove the concept through prototyping and pre-production verification and validation. From there, we move seamlessly to manufacturing, where our dedicated cells, supplier relationships and flexible volume production enable a quick ramp up.
A Culture of Excellence
As a Fortive company, Dover Motion operates according to the Fortive Business System (FBS). FBS tools, based on the Toyota model, aren’t just used to maximize manufacturing efficiency; they are a framework for continuous improvement that we apply to every area of our operation. Our “measure and improve” philosophy extends to individuals as well. Every Dover Motion manager and team member knows that their continuing growth and excellence are the foundation of our collective excellence and success.
