For linear movements

Spindle drives convert the power generated by the motor into feed velocity and feed force. The integrated axial bearing can take extremely high axial loads. maxon spindle drives are available with metric, ball screw, and trapezoidal screw spindles.

Properties of the maxon spindle drive:

  • Compact design with directly attached spindle
  • Includes a planetary gearhead with integrated radial and axial bearing
  • Able to deliver high forces and feed velocities
  • Wide range of spindles for any application case
