Domestic power tools begin to overheat after a while; surgical power tools are no different but with more significant consequences. This article shows how maxon has been working with the medical profession to combat this problem.
Drive specialist maxon is launching the next generation of motion controllers with its MiniMACS6-AMP-4/50/10. The controller is used wherever PLC solutions are too expensive or cannot meet customer-specific requirements.
maxon has collaborated with drone startup Flybotix to develop performance-optimized brushless DC motors for a new kind of inspection drone. With the know-how gained from this and other projects, maxon is making inroads into the new UAV market, where the reliability and quality of components are becoming more important.
To disinfect surfaces without taking risks, the Bataillon de Marins-Pompiers (marine fire service) from Marseille has equipped itself with two Colossus robots. These remote control and highly modular autonomous robots are proving to be valuable assets in the fight against Covid-19. Fitted with maxon motors, these versatile robots are also capable of supporting the unit in large-scale incidents. A report on a heroic collaboration.
