Drive systems for the automotive industry.

On the racetrack or on the road: Our drives are moving things.

maxon motors ensure that drivers stay on track – always. They are used, for example, to make the steering wheel vibrate when a vehicle crosses the middle line. However, our drives are also used in other parts of cars, such as air conditioning systems, power-assisted steering, wind deflectors in convertibles, or fuel and injection pumps. Our components are also installed in racing engines used in the Formula 1 or Formula 3.5. They operate precisely and reliably even under demanding conditions.

Staying on track

Driver assist systems can help save lives by alerting driver of potential danger.
