We build customer-specific drives for you, even if it's only a single unit. We combine brushed and brushless DC motors, gearheads, sensors, and controllers into mechatronic drive systems.
Use our e-shop to assemble your specific maxon DC or BLDC drive: For example, you can configure gear stages, motor bearings, shafts, and encoders online – and much more. We will have your drive ready for shipment within 11 working days – including modifications to gearhead and sensor.
Since 1961, businesses from a wide range of industries, including medical technology, robotics, industrial automation, mobility, and aerospace, place their trust in reliable drive systems by maxon. Our drives excel where extreme precision and the highest quality standards are indispensable and compromises cannot be tolerated – on Earth, and on Mars.
In the CYBATHLON, people with physical disabilities compete against each other in obstacle races – supported by state-of-the-art technical assistance systems. The teams and their pilots compete in six disciplines: brain-computer interface (BCI) race, functional electrical stimulation (FES) bike race, powered arm prosthesis race, powered leg prosthesis race, powered exoskeleton race, and powered wheelchair race. The CYBATHLON is hosted by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH). With this event, the institute provides a platform for exchange between technology developers, people with disabilities, and the public.
CYBATHLON 2020 will take place on November 13 – 14, 2020 – globally and in a new format, at the teams’ home bases. They will set up their infrastructure for the competition and film their races. From Zurich, the competitions will be broadcast through a new platform in a unique live program. At the CYBATHLON 2020 Global Edition, pilots and their development teams will show what they have achieved together over the past years and will offer the spectators an unforgettable competition experience.
