Your drive specialist, maxon motor, is equipping its EPOS4 positioning controllers with additional connectivity options. They can now be integrated into any EtherCAT network as a slave by using an expansion board.
maxon motor is introducing new products in all areas of drive technology, from tiny BLDC motors to frameless drives to EtherCAT control solutions. All these innovations will be presented for the first time at the SPS IPC Drives exhibition in Nuremberg.
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. This gives rise to a number of benefits.
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.
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.
Precision drive systems can be found in the home, in vehicles, and at work, making our lives simpler and safer. The current issue of driven, the maxon motor magazine, provides interesting insights into the world of drive technology. It also goes in search of an old friend.
Company to invest CHF 30 million at its headquarters
Swiss drive specialist maxon motor is expanding its headquarters in Switzerland. Construction of the new Innovation Center is due to start in February. The building is scheduled to be ready for use by summer 2018. At this location, the company will also develop and manufacture its smallest drives.
maxon motor introduces additional brushless DC motors in its ECX series. They are fast, powerful, and easily configured on a computer. These motors are complemented with new modules for the compact EPOS4 positioning controller, which has a high power density and easy handling. Drive technology is becoming even better and more intuitive.
