UK Robotics has recently launched a new liquid handler to shake up the lab automation market. Feedback from small biotech companies and big pharmaceuticals has been beyond the company's wildest expectations
Stefan Müller has been appointed Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of the maxon Group. Previ-ously head of the Mobility Solutions business unit, he will take up his post on January 1, 2022. Also, this summer, Andreas Richter joined the Group's management as Chief Operations Officer (COO).
maxon presents a new frameless BLDC motor with matching encoder that really comes into its own in dynamic applications. At the same time, the drive specialist is presenting a new series of ECX flat motors for a wide range of robotics applications. This heralds the arrival on the market of several solutions for design engineers grappling with tight spaces.
How maxon helped Dublin City University engineer new technology for monitoring aquatic environments
As the impact of climate change and land use continue to harm aquatic environments, it is becoming increasingly important to measure and monitor changes in water quality. When Dublin City University (DCU) Water Institute was developing its new mobile lab technology to help predict future changes in water quality, it turned to precision drive and motor specialist, maxon for help.
Motors capable of operating at high ambient temperatures are nothing new to maxon. The HD (Heavy Duty) brushless DC motor range, developed to operate in ambient temperatures up to 200⁰C, has been on the market for over a decade. Until now, these temperatures were exclusively the domain of brushless motors; maxon has now changed that with the new HT (High Temperature) brushed DC motor.
