BLDC motor, gearhead, and encoder from a single source.
With the ENX EASY, maxon motor is offering a sterilizable encoder for its brushless DC motors for the first time. This opens up a range of new possibilities in medical technology – and it's not the only innovation coming from the Swiss drive specialist.
Company to invest CHF 30 million at its headquarters
Drive specialist maxon motor is expanding its headquarters in Switzerland. Construction of the new Innovation Centre is due to start in February. The building is scheduled to be ready for use by summer 2018.
The Shadow Robot Company used their 20 years’ experience of developing world class robotic hands and thought how they could apply this knowledge to service robots. The result is the Smart Grasping System (SGS), an industrial grasper with built-in intelligence.
Never before has it been this simple to put together a customised, high-end drive – either at work or at home: with maxon motor's online configurator. A variety of brushless, high-speed motors and gearheads are now available.
Swiss motors are driving exoskeletons all over the world
At the first Cybathlon in Zürich, researchers are presenting the world's best exoskeletons – devices that enable paraplegics to walk again. Motors from Switzerland play a central part in this development.
