Phytron and Mclennan exhibit at Space-Comm Expo 2022

Phytron, the globally leading designer and manufacturer of harsh and extreme environment motion control components and systems will demonstrate its expertise in deep space, ultra-high vacuum and cryogenic rated motors, gear units, actuators, and drives at Space-Comm Expo.

Accompanied on stand N50 by Mclennan, its exclusive UK distribution partner, the German specialist can count over 500 motors successfully deployed on exploration craft and satellite systems in its more than 30 years working in deep space applications.

Phytron’s phySPACE space-qualified stepper motors are engineered to withstand extreme levels of vibration, radiation, and temperature – and with ECSS conform materials fulfil the demanding requirements for use in ultra-high vacuum – providing high precision positioning whilst maintaining optimal power consumption, minimal thermal dissipation, and low weight. Phytron’s latest successes in deep space applications include motion axes for instruments used on the James Webb Space Telescope and NASA’s InSight Mars Lander.

Engineers from Phytron and Mclennan will be on hand at the show to discuss potential applications in ground-based simulation and deep space deployment as standard or completely customised solutions.

Mclennan has a long working history with Phytron, providing product and service support as a specialised motion component supplier and system integrator with the German Mittelstand-certified manufacturer’s products applied across extreme and harsh environment motion control tasks in industry, scientific research and deep space.
