Image resolution depends on the ability to take a high number of thin slices with minimal unwanted motion, either of the machine or the patient. More slices per rotation also enables complete capture of the region of interest faster, with less risk of patient movement that could require a retake and expose the patient to an excess radiation dose.

We can help you produce and deliver medical imaging systems to meet these goals with superior speed, precision and quality. And we can provide the advanced motors, drives and technical support you need to succeed, anywhere in the world. Engineer the exceptional with Kollmorgen

More Ambitious Design for Precise Imaging

Advances in medical imaging systems enable capture of 640 or more slices, requiring precise control and positioning of both the imager gantry and patient table at high speeds.

Kollmorgen’s advanced direct drive technology is optimized for these high speeds, with no transmission complexity, compliance or backlash. And our industry-leading servo loops and unique software filters enable the most precise acceleration and positioning, with virtually no overshoot or settling time.

So your machine can capture more slices, faster, at the highest image resolution and quality.
