Paoli, PA— Ametek Inc. reports that it has acquired patented technology and other proprietary and intellectual assets from Xtreme Energy, a privately held developer of brushless dc micro-motors for healthcare, aerospace, and industrial applications.

'Xtreme Energy's patented technology allows for the design and manufacture of high-efficiency brushless, slotless dc motors that produce more power, relative to size, than comparable motors. Its motors use proprietary and patented winding geometry and motor construction techniques that result in some of the most energy efficient brushless dc motors available,' says Frank Hermance, Ametek’s chairman and CEO. 'This acquisition complements our existing differentiated technical motor business, adding a unique line of small high-efficiency motors to our brushless dc motor offering and strengthening our relationships with key industry OEMs, many of whom already are customers of that business.'

Ametek manufactures electronic instruments and electric motors, and has annual sales of approximately $1.4 billion.
