Maxon Motor, a supplier of high precision drives and systems, has unveiled a new robotics brochure. The company’s products include small, high-quality brushed and brushless DC motors. These advanced motors range in size from 4 mm to 90. Maxon also offers a complete line of control electronics, as well as spur and planetary gearheads, encoders, and tachometers to complement each of our motors.
Over the years, Maxon has directed a significant portion of its engineering efforts toward the development of specialized products for robotic applications. The company’s drives are suited to robotics because of the precision, compact size and the efficiency levels reached.
Some notable robotic applications driven by maxon motion control products include “Pepper” by Aldebaran, “da Vinci” surgical robot by Intuitive Surgical; “Jaco2” robotic arm by Kinova Robotics; the Mars “Rover” by Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and the “Kenshiro” humanoid robot by the University of Tokyo.
