Formula Student is an annual competition for university undergraduates, run by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). Teams from around the world design, build, test and race small-scale formula style racing cars. maxon controllers are a fundamental part of the hydraulic actuation system for the team at the University of Bath.
Motors used in robotics must be lightweight while simultaneously providing high torque in order for arms and grippers to move dynamically. This is why Swiss drive specialist maxon motor is offering a new solution: The tried and tested brushless flat motors as frameless kits.
NASA's next Mars rover will collect soil samples, seal them and deposit them on the Martian surface for future collection and transport back to Earth. Swiss manufacturer maxon motor supplies several drives specifically developed for the task.
maxon motor group increases revenues to CHF 422.5 million in 2016 – Europe and Swiss home market Switzerland trending up – For the first time, more employees abroad than in Switzerland – Competitive edge due to technology and product initiative
With their optimized magnetic circuit and special rotor, the new brushless DC motors from maxon deliver an impressive amount of torque. The EC-i 52 drives are considered to be high quality at an attractive price.
