British Antarctic Survey contacted maxon motor uk with a requirement for a powerful motor with high torque, in a small diameter, to fit in their ice core drill. They needed to be able to vary the speed and get constant torque even at a slow speed; yet still be able to get the maximum torque.
Stories, blogs, and innovations in drive technology
A treat is in store for drive technology aficionados: drive.tech, a brand-new website with interesting stories, news, and blog posts. In addition, drive.tech is a platform for start-ups and student projects supported by Swiss drive specialist maxon motor.
Compact power for your motion control application.
maxon motor's EPOS range of controllers has been very successful in the market for 10 years. More than 100,000 units are in use worldwide. To continue this success, the Swiss drive specialist launches the EPOS4 as the next generation of positioning controllers.
We know more about the surface of the moon than the depths of the ocean. That's no surprise given the conditions there and yet an increasing number of ever more sophisticated vehicles are making their way down to the seabed. driven, the maxon motor magazine, goes on a dive and brings back surprising facts and stories.
Introducing Rich Walker, Managing Director of Shadow Robot
Shadow designs and manufactures state-of-the-art anthropomorphic robot hands and related systems. In this short video the Managing Director, Rich Walker, talks about the company and its relationship with maxon motor uk.
A significant problem when operating on the brain is trying to reach a lesion whilst avoiding obstructions. A traditional straight needle insertion has the potential to injure an area, causing irreversible consequences, or the surgeon could deem it too dangerous to even attempt, resulting in an inoperable diagnosis. Imperial College, London has been working with maxon products to develop a groundbreaking robotic steerable needle.
When it comes to innovative products, maxon have been involved in quite a few over the years, but when maxon’s brushless DC motors and gearheads were utilised in a revolving poker table, it was certainly a first.
maxon recently presented a powerful motor for e-bikes, the BIKEDRIVE. Yet that was only the beginning: The new MARS business unit (Maxon Advanced Robotics & Systems) is dedicated exclusively to mechatronic drive systems.
The new ECX motors are fast, sterilisable and configurable.
maxon motor launches new high-speed motors that are configurable online. The new ECX brushless motors are quiet and feature very high efficiency. These brushless drives are ideal for use in hand-held surgi-cal tools and industrial spindles.
The latest issue of maxon’s driven magazine explores the challenges in robotic applications.
The new issue of driven, the maxon motor magazine is now available. In this issue, we learn that interaction between humans and robots will become much closer in the years to come, both at home and at work. What will this new interaction look like? What are the technical challenges? This latest issue of driven provides some of these answers and more.
