ORIENTAL MOTOR U.S.A. CORP. offers over 5,000 different products to meet your diverse requirements. We supply the highest quality and widest selection of motion control products available, ranging from compact AC gearmotors and stepping motor systems, to brushless speed control systems, to linear and rotary actuators providing linear and rotational motion. A full line of cooling fans is also included in Oriental Motor's wide range of products. Over 100 years of progress in research and development has placed Oriental Motor in the forefront of motor manufacturers worldwide. Today we are the primary source of small precision motor systems.

Motion Control Products

Oriental Motor's full line of VEXTA high performance 2- and 5-phase stepping motor/driver systems and controllers are designed to meet your precision positioning requirements. Our stepping motor systems provide highly accurate positioning with 100% repeatability. These motor/driver systems are factory matched to provide optimal performance and easy installation. One of Oriental Motor's more recent product innovations is the AlphaStep closed-loop stepping motor system, a unique product that combines stepping and servo motor technologies.  The AlphaStep is a revolutionary hybrid step motor and driver package that never loses synchronism.  A newly developed embedded rotor position sensor constantly monitors performance to ensure no loss of motion.  This product, along with many other Oriental Motor products, is available with IP65 rating for splash-proof and dust-proof protection.

A wide selection of Oriental Motor AC speed control, reversible, synchronous, torque and induction motors, along with brushless speed control systems and low speed synchronous motors are also available from ORIENTAL MOTOR U.S.A. CORP. All are built with durability and quality in mind.  A variety of low noise gearheads are available to further control speed and increase torque.

Oriental Motor's electric actuators provide linear & rotary movement.  The new EZ Limo motorized cylinders and linear sliders provide advanced functions and sophisticated motion control in an easy-to-use, all-in-one linear motion product.  Saving you time and expense usually required to design and manufacture similar systems.

Cooling fans are essential in the smooth operation of many sophisticated machines. Rounding out our wide variety of products, Oriental Motor’s ORIX fan line includes AC & DC axial flow fans, centrifugal blowers, and cross flow fans. These fans incorporate specially designed fan blades for increased air pressure, increased static pressure, high airflow, and low noise. All ORIX products are designed for long service life.

ORIENTAL MOTOR U.S.A. CORP. now offers 2800 U.S.A. standard RoHS compliant products with another 2500 RoHS compliant products available in Japan.  Many of their standard motors and associative electronic drivers are now available in RoHS compliant versions.  Other products will be added as their RoHS versions become available.

Quality Products

Oriental Motor operates in a Just-in-time and a Lean Manufacturing environment.  Quality is built-in to the product throughout the entire manufacturing process. This is achieved by utilizing the One-Piece Flow System on our Flexible U-line work cells wherein all necessary equipment are positioned in the sequence in which it is used.  In the simplest of terms, one-piece flow means that each motor is carefully built one-piece-at-a-time allowing it to be thoroughly inspected and tested, thus, quality defects are easily detected and contained. Additionally, defect prevention is also the direct result of the continuous error proofing of our processes.
