Getting to know us
It's been said perfect is
the enemy of good. While only God is perfect, we shoot for
perfection by relentlessly focusing on the details – no matter how
nuanced. Our goal is simple. Every single product should be
pick-of-the-litter compared to our competition.
Things you see, things you don't, and what to look for
don't operate with a 'cost be damned' attitude but anyone with
an eye for detail can instantly tell our products from the
competition. For example, we assemble our servos with 10 Allen-head
machine screws despite the fact using 4 Phillips-head screws (like
everyone else) would cost 1/4th as much. We also
CNC-machine our aluminum case component while competitors use extrusions costing 70% less. And we use genuine Nobel potentiometers when the
other guys use cheapo oriental-clones.
While other are satisfied with plain plastic pockets, we fit Swiss-machined bronze inserts to serve as hard points for the steel gear shafts. This is how we keep the gear-train from
developing slop. If you're the type that notices details you're gonna love our stuff. And there are other examples, like how we use a conformal-coating on the PCB (printed circuit board) for protecting against vibration. The other guys do nothing or make do with a piece of foam and call it good. We also we use ABEC-9 bearings versus ordinary (and less precise) ABEC-5. Sure, 90% of folks couldn't tell the difference in a million years, but we know. We
could go on, but if you're a perfectionist then you should know this . . . we share the same obsession for detail.
When engineers make decision instead of the
Bottom line? We won't say the accountants
control our competitors, but if cheap and good enough were in our
vocabulary we wouldn't be known for bespoke products. Finally, if you
know of any product that matches up to one of ours – and wins –
let us know because we won't sleep until ours is better again.
