Precision DC motors since 1961.

Our micromotors move everything that has to be rotated with high precision and reliability.
 

At maxon motor, we develop and build electric drives that pack some real power. Our DC motors are leading the industry worldwide. They are used wherever the requirements are high and engineers cannot afford compromises: maxon motors drive NASA's Mars rovers. They are installed in insulin pumps and surgical power tools. You can find them in humanoid robots and in high-precision industrial applications, in tattoo machines, passenger aircraft, camera lenses, race cars, and cardiac pumps.

For more than 50 years, we have focused on customer-specific solutions, quality, and innovation. As a result, our modular product range has constantly been expanded and now includes:

  • Brushless and brushed DC motors
  • Brushless flat motors
  • Planetary gearheads, spur gearheads, special gearheads
  • Sensors
  • Servo amplifiers, positioning controllers
  • High-tech CIM and MIM components
  • Custom drives
