The second CYBATHLON is going to take place on May 2 and 3, 2020. Once again, people with physical disabilities compete against each other in exciting races—supported by state-of-the-art technical assistance systems. There are new challenges for the contestants and the engineers in all disciplines. As a Presenting Partner, maxon is at the forefront.
maxon motor is becoming an international group. This process results in several changes at the management level. At the same time, the Swiss location in Sachseln with its 1200 employees is getting its own local management board.
maxon will show the latest in drive technology at the Hannover Messe.
Drive specialist maxon motor will be presenting exciting new products at the world's largest technology trade show. Some new products being featured include: flat motors with improved performance, a new line of modular industrial drives, as well as DC motors and angular gearheads from Parvalux, the latest addition to the maxon group.
Together with its long-term partner Servo Dynamics, drive specialist maxon motor has founded a new sales company for the South East Asia region – a move that also takes into account the changed global economic situation.
maxon motor has become well known in the small precision drive market for its large catalogue of standard products. However, most people will not be aware that around 80% of product supplied worldwide is modified in some way or another.
With the EPOS4 series, maxon is offering a reliable and extremely versatile platform of high-performance motion controllers. It addresses the needs of system integrators and fulfills the requirements of a variety of applications, such as industrial automation, apparatus engineering, and robotics. The platform is now being complemented with two new Compact EtherCAT models.
A successful strategy for growth is being continued.
The maxon motor group is adding another valuable new member: maxon acquired the British geared motor manufacturer Parvalux Electric Motors Ltd. The acquisition expands the maxon portfolio with powerful drives for applications in medical technology and industrial automation, among other fields.
