Maxon Motor have been in the forefront of precision drives and cutting edge technology solutions for 50 years and can therefore offer a huge range of modular drives options. These can either be made up from standard components from their range, or manufactured as bespoke solutions to meet the customers’ special requirements.   

Maxon’s electric motors are combined with gearheads, encoders, brakes and controllers that are fully compatible and as a result, the ideal combination is realised.  In addition, compact solutions can be specially engineered within a specially engineered housing to give both a complete and intelligent range of modular drives for some unusual applications, as well as giving protection from their operating environments.

All the R&D and production of the customised modular drive systems are procured from one source, which simplifies the procurement and development processes for the customer.

Maxon have the capability for both one-off or serial production runs.

The price is optimised using standard inventory items and common standards throughout. A reliable solution with full quality and assurance standards for safety critical applications is assured.
