At 10,000 m or in deep space: maxon motors won't skip out on you.
maxon drives were used to drive several Mars rovers and proven to be extremely effective in withstanding the conditions there. Our DC motors resist significant temperature changes, dust, dirt, and storms. This is achieved with state-of-the-art technology, countless lab tests, and specific modifications. maxon engineers transfer their knowledge from custom projects to other aerospace projects such as actuators in passenger planes or stabilizers in unmanned aircraft. We have the knowledge and the experience. Whether you require a small series for special projects or large quantities, our modern production facilities deliver what you need.
Compact, rugged, and efficient.
DC motors by maxon are resistant to thermal and mechanical shocks. The long life span, efficiency and compact design of the motors make them ideal for applications in the aerospace industry.
