In 2017 maxon unveiled the first complete system of sterilisable brushless DC motor, gearbox and choice of absolute or incremental encoder. This is particularly found in applications within the medical and laboratory automation, and dental sectors.
Australian start-up company, Space Industries, have been working with maxon Group Australia for nearly one year. Their project is gaining global attention and traction – developing new mining technologies for the moon.
Inspired by the development of specialised gearboxes for NASA’s Mars 2020 project and the European Space Agency’s ExoMars mission, maxon have introduced a new standard to their miniature gearboxes - now with increased efficiency and improved performance.
