Drive system for Industrial automation and robotics.

Robots are driving the world. And we are driving the robots.

Complex mechatronic systems work only if every single component is very high quality. maxon guarantees this and is also the only vendor worldwide that develops and produces DC motors, gearheads, sensors, and controllers all from a single source. Our customers benefit from this, for example when it comes to multi-axis robot controllers. The various interfaces are designed to be compatible right from the outset. This cuts down on development time and saves money.

maxon is also your partner of choice when it comes to drives for humanoid robots, hand-held tools, packaging machines, or welding systems.
