Barrett Technology’s Puck Motor-Drive-Electronics Module Wins US Patent Protection

Wednesday, December 22, 2010

Cambridge, MA -- Barrett Technology's key innovation underlying the Puck™ drive-electronics module for brushless motors will be awarded a United States Patent today under US Patent No. 7,854,631.

According to Neil Singer, founder and CEO of Convolve, Inc. in Armonk, New York, "This patent is extraordinarily broad and will have implications across the motion-control industry."

Dassault Systemès SolidWorks Corp. founder Jon Hirschtick adds, "This tiny invention has profound implications for designers of machines and any products that use brushless motors."

Barrett CEO and founder Bill Townsend says, "The prosecution of this patent took a major effort, but the patent is much stronger for it. With this invention, we envision a time when most small machines with brushless motors will use the Puck™ in some shape or form."

Barrett Technology, Inc., of Cambridge, MA, USA, is credited in The Guinness Book of Records, Millennium Edition, as maker of the world's "most advanced robotic arm." Its highly dexterous robotic arm and versatile robotic hand are based on innovative electromechanical drive technologies and designed to operate in pioneering applications from haptically-guided surgeries to people-centric automobile manufacture.
