maxon motor is turning 50

maxon motor, the canton of Obwalden's largest employer, turns 50. Originally planned as a production site of the Braun GmbH electrical group in Frankfurt in December 1961, Sachseln-based maxon motor is today a company with a worldwide reputation in drive technology. Employing close on 1,900 staff, of which more than 1,000 work at the headquarters in Sachseln alone, maxon motor is the largest employer in the canton of Obwalden. One particular order helped maxon become world-famous - this was when NASA's Sojourner rover landed on Mars on July 4, 1997, as it was fitted with 11 maxon DC motors. The company laid the foundation for all subsequent innovations with a program of high-precision DC motors and the patented production process for an ironless rotor with rhombic winding that almost doubled efficiency compared to traditional DC motors. maxon motors are used in many other areas apart from space travel, such as medical technology, industrial automation, in cars and planes, measuring and security technology and in robotics.
