Frederick G. Moritz
Upon graduation I was employed as a junior draftsman working for Mr. Ruffle, a former Brooklyn Tech teacher who had returned to industry. I then received my BSEE from Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute in 1956, followed by my MSEE in 1963.
I pursued increasingly responsible positions in electromechanical engineering, primarily in the design of computer peripheral equipment such as digital tape drives and high-speed line printers, becoming Chief Engineer of Bucode, Inc.
Was then co-founder and president of MFM Technology, a pioneer in the design of brushless DC motors and precision motion controls and systems for 25 years. MFM then merged with Bayside Motion Group, a manufacturer of planetary gear heads and linear slides. At Bayside I taught classes in motor control, electronics and servo system theory.
I have been granted 20 U.S. and foreign patents in the electronic and motion-control fields.
I published a book, Electromechanical Motion Systems – Design and Simulation ( J. Wiley & Sons) that is a concise introduction to the precision motion-control field.
Note: Even after all these years I still have the soldering iron that I fabricated in electrical shop at Brooklyn Tech; it still works very well!
