maxon drives set the world in motion.
maxon motor combines electric motors, gears and DC motor controls into high-precision, intelligent drive systems that can be custom-made to fit the specific needs of customer applications. maxon motor helps provide innovative solutions at competitive prices for numerous applications in various markets, such as industrial automation, medical technology, security technology, instrumentation, communications, and consumer applications, among others.
Offering solutions that fit your customized needs maxon motor manufactures small, high-quality brush and brushless DC motors ranging in size from 4mm to 90mm and up to 500 watts. maxon’s rhombic wound ironless rotor motors provide exceptionally high efficiency, low EMI emissions, fast acceleration, no preferred rotor position, torque constants and long service life. The drive components are assembled and designed within our modular system according to your individual needs. You can combine, according to your requirements, motors with 10 different product classes with planetary, standard or special gearheads, feedback devices, brakes and control electronics.
Brushed and brushless configurable DC motors – more versions, more power
Now even stronger, more efficient and with yet more combination options: There are new additions to the maxon family of X drive products. Several long versions of brushed DC motors, with higher torques and more power, have been added to the product range along with matching planetary gearheads. Each of the 3-stage versions can now be combined with the next smaller motor. This saves space, weight and costs.
In addition, maxon launched a brushless DC motor (ECX) line to its configurable online program. These motors are available with diameters of 8, 16 and 19 mm achieving speeds of up to 120,000 rpm. They run very smoothly and are highly efficient in standard or sterilizable versions (up to 2,000 autoclave cycles). Ideal for use in hand-held surgical tools and industrial spindles.
maxon motor’s X drives are extremely powerful and are now available in maxon’s online shop, where customizing the drives is easy. Customers can fit the drives with specific mechanical and electrical components specific to their application needs. It is possible to customize the shaft lengths, winding types, ball bearings and much more. When combined together with maxon encoders and planetary gearheads, you form a high-precision, robust drive system ideal for any application from aerospace to medical to robotics. In fact anywhere that requires a compact, powerful, quiet and strong drive system.
The X program is a lean and automated process which ensures that all configurable drives are ready for shipment within 11 working days. In addition, detailed product data may be viewed immediately online and 3D CAD data for the configuration is available for downloading.
