For the first time, a helicopter will take off from the surface of Mars. Aerospace engineer at AeroVironment Inc. Matt Keennon explains how this impossible mission became a reality.
More than 100 electric motors from maxon have been used on the Red Planet and have withstood cosmic radiation, dust storms, and temperature fluctuations. With the Perseverance rover, precision drives are once again flying to Mars. The key to success is th
maxon is supporting the CYBATHLON 2020
Compact drive with integrated positioning controller
Inspection robots for pipes and ducts, rescue robots in disaster areas, or humanoid robots – they all have one thing in common: They are mobile robots that aid humans. We explain some of their requirements for drive technology in detail
Many applications would benefit from a brushless motor without a sensor. There are various options for realizing this. A method developed by maxon is now setting new standards for precision and reliability
At the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, professor Auke Ijspeert and its team use robots as a scientific tool to better understand mobility in living beings and explore the secret of the spinal cord
Stairs are still unsurmountable obstacles for many robots. Yet a young team at ETH Zurich is building a vehicle designed to negotiate steps with ease - by hopping. Author: Adrian Venetz, maxon motor ag
maxon launches a sterilizable encoder, offering its customers a complete system with high speed BLDC motor, gearhead and encoder that withstands more than 1000 autoclave cycles.
DC motors made by maxon drive the Mars rover and have been running on
the Red Planet for more than ten years. Down here on Earth, the unique quality
of their reliable, efficiient and powerful drive systems ensures customer satisfaction.
The configurable DC drives from maxon motor are extremely powerful: The DCX motor with 35 mm diameter and 67 mm length continuously delivers up to 120 Watt. Configure a custom drive online to include gearhead and sensor
maxon spindle drives for linear motion are compact and easily configurable as complete systems; with integrated axial bearing for high axial loads. Versions with ceramic components, metric spindles, ball or trapezoidal screws are available
The ship building industry also relies on maxon's drive systems, e.g. in welding robots which ensure that tankers make safe crossings. The product encompasses: brushless and brushed DC motors, gearheads, feedback devices and control electronics
The maxon product range is built on an extensive modular system: brushless/brushed DC motors, planetary, spur and gearheads, feedback devices and control electronics. They are used, e.g. in measuring constructions and precise positioning of lasers.
The configurable DCX DC drives of maxon motor are powerful, delivering 120W with just 35mm diameter and 67mm length. Users can configure a custom drive online to include gearhead and sensor. The drive will ship from Switzerland in 11 working days.
Users can configure their own maxon DC drive: they can configure the gear stages, the motor bearings, the shafts, the encoder and much more. The finished drive will ship from Switzerland in 11 working days.
Assemble your individual maxon DC drive: You can configure the gear stages, the motor bearings, the shafts, the encoder and much more. Design your custom drive online today and your finished drive will ship from Switzerland in 11 working days.
