Welcome to IDL MOTORS!
IDL Motors (fka Industrial Design Laboratories) is a technology center for thin and ultra-thin radial and linear motors, including integrated worldwide thinnest motor-blowers/motor coolers and associated self-contained heat transfer units.
We have accumulated decades of experience with Linear and Radial Drive configurations and designs featuring low-noise, ultra-high reliability and outstanding performance. Our team has been granted more than 120 patents worldwide.
At our San Diego facility we carry out R&D, a variety of simulations, engineering development and small-quantity production. For larger quantities we leverage our long-term standing relationships with cost-effective outsourced manufacturers, capable of implementing our technologies. We can also transfer licensed production to our customers and strategic partners.
Our company launched the breakthrough linear propulsion systems that propel MINI MOtion trains, racing cars and any other small objects along a thin track.
Unique IDL technologies solve critical problems in a large variety of market segments for radial and linear drives: embedded computing; computing industry, particularly 1U servers, where the demand for computing power is ever-increasing driving cooling demands beyond manageable; HVAC and industrial ventilation; defense and aerospace; automotive industry et al.
For an ordinary challenge with a need to build a new type of device or develop a thermal management solution, there are a variety of standard ways to achieve that. However, when the challenge is extraordinary, IDL solutions are unmatched and unique in their performance, efficiency, cost, form factor and reliability.
We look forward to hearing from you!
