The resolution of the image, the comfort and compliance of the patient, the efficiency of the procedure and even the potential outcome of the treatment—all of these depend on the quality of motion. Kollmorgen can help you engineer and produce imaging systems that deliver the greatest achievable speed and precision, so you can produce more slices, with less radiation, while ensuring accurate positioning and a better overall patient experience.

Quality and control are the watchwords for healthcare delivery today. When you’re aiming to be the quality and control leader, engineer the exceptional with Kollmorgen.

More Ambitious Design for Precise Imaging

Kollmorgen offers advanced direct drive technology optimized for high speed with precise control over position and velocity. Your imaging system can produce more slices, at higher resolution, in a shorter time—without compromise. Faster, more controlled imaging also means a lower radiation dose for the patient, with far less risk of artifacts that require a repeated scan.

Greater resolution and speed for 3D and 4D CT systems. Precise patient table timing for more accurate X-ray imaging. Responsive interoperative imaging for better surgical outcomes. Optimized motion for hybrid imaging. Accuracy and control for nuclear medicine. When motion matters for better healthcare, Kollmorgen can help you engineer and build a better solution.
