The ElectroForce Systems Group of Bose Corporation provides materials testing and durability simulation instruments to research institutions, universities, medical device companies and engineering organizations worldwide. It is also a new business division for Bose that builds upon and transcends its forty year history of audio innovation.
Bose has been committed to electromagnetic technology and research since its founding close to 50 years ago. Throughout its history, the company has maintained expertise in certain technical disciplines, namely - power electronics, controls and linear electromagnetic actuators. The ElectroForce Systems Group has leveraged this expertise to develop a variety of test instruments for medical device development and materials research.
Bose has developed several different linear actuator topologies, and one of them is the ElectroForce® moving-magnet linear motor, originally developed for an experimental application. Bose patented that linear motor, recognizing its potential in non-audio applications.
In 1999, Bose began supplying the linear motor and related components to EnduraTEC Systems Corporation, who saw how this technology could enhance their materials testing business. Five years later, Bose acquired company assets related to the development, manufacture and sales of materials testing equipment, and EnduraTEC became the ElectroForce Systems Group.
The linear motor technology
The ElectroForce Systems Group is making its mark in the test instruments industry. Proprietary Bose® linear motor technologies are key to helping them distinguish themselves in this market. The ElectroForce linear motor provides exceptional fidelity and precision for a variety of testing applications, and as a result ElectroForce test instruments have set new standards for dynamic performance and elegant simplicity in a single test system.
The ElectroForce linear motor uses a moving magnet design supported by a flexure assembly that provides essentially friction-free performance. In addition, the motor is quiet, energy efficient, clean, and simple to implement. ElectroForce motor technologies are scalable to fit a wide variety of applications that require superior performance attributes, including large dynamic force, and a broad frequency range requiring high accelerations and velocities.
Today, ElectroForce motors, designed and manufactured by Bose, are used throughout the ElectroForce test instrument portfolio. We invite you to learn more about this exciting new business area for Bose, and how we enable our customers to make better products and improve the quality of life.
