New range of DC servo motors in Australia

The products range from small 2.5W DC motors all the way up to custom designed, heavy industrial, complete mechatronic systems. In 2004 they built a state of the art in house laboratory to assist with DC motor design and development. The equipment and expertise are constantly upgraded, calibrated and fine tuned to stay the leading edge of technology. In this facility they use specially developed DC motor testing processes, electrical and mechanical simulation tools as well as extensive DC motor prototyping and test equipment, to provide theoretical findings and practical results for the motors in the shortest possible time. This modern facility is now enabling the company to economically design and test motors for the most specialised and demanding industrial applications worldwide.

As well as small DC servo motors KAG has a wide selection of gears including planetary, worm and spur. KAG focuses on developing and producing small and powerful dc drives for very special fields of application, for example: medical technology motors, DC Gearmotors for domestic services engineering, motor controlled fluid mechanics, the automotive industry, office communications, automatic machines and mechanical engineering.

With a 160-strong team under the direction of innovative CEO Matthias Kählig they successfully develop and economically produce DC mechatronic systems, DC motors and DC motor control units that are cost-effective and innovative, there is a small DC servo motor or gearhead to suit any application.

Small DC servo motor with high resolution encoder and planetary + spiroid gear combination.

maxon motor Australia have just implemented the first combination of a small PMDC servo motor with a dual gearhead combination using both planetary and Helicon technology. The application is a gyro stabilised cinematography camera mount with three. The customer required both inline and right angle gearboxes for the different axis but also needed the same ratio throughout. Worm gearheads could not be used because of their inherently low efficiency and a helical of the correct ratio would be too large for the torque requirements. The solution was to use a combination of a ceramic planetary gearhead and the new spiroid gearhead technology. The multiplication of the two gearbox efficiencies is an impressive 72% while the equivalent ratio in a single ceramic planetary is only marginally better at 75%. The single helicon tooth form in itself has an efficiency of 90% Contact maxon motor Australia for further information or assistance.

Medical grade DC servomotors and gearboxes.

13485 certified small DC servo motors produced by maxon medical.

maxon medical is a separate business division of maxon motor and it is focused specifically on producing brushed and brushless DC motor and drive systems of premium quality to fully satisfy medical industry demands. The maxon medical motor production is certified to ISO13485. Maxon medical brushed and brushless small DC servo motors are used in prosthetics, surgery tools, ventilation devices, CPAP machines and laboratory equipment. maxon medical DC motors even implanted into the human body. At the new medical motor manufacturing facility the DC motor components are manufactured on in-house designed equipment that is often also powered by maxon motors. These production facilities are a clean room environment and all production personnel are highly trained technicians.

The latest product to join our medical range is the 4 mm brushless DC micromotor and gearhead.  The general problem with micro drives is that the power output is too low for the application, due to the physical dimensions. maxon medical was able to increase the performance of this tiny motor using the latest winding technology, the most powerful magnets and optimum use of the air gap. The integration of Hall sensors is also unique for motors of this size.

The 4 mm brushless DC motor is a great fit for applications in the fields of micro pumps, analytic and diagnostic devices, ophthalmic surgical devices, laboratory robots, endoscopes and anywhere where size is an issue.

maxon explored the limits of the technical possibilities and is setting new benchmarks. With the innovative platform, we have created the prerequisites for opening up future oriented fields of application.

New: Small DC servomotor with high resolution encoder and planetary + spiroid gear combination.

maxon motor Australia have just implemented the first combination of a small PMDC servo motor with a dual gearhead combination using both planetary and Helicon technology. The application is a gyro stabilised cinematography camera mount with three degrees of freedom.  The customer required both inline and right angle gearboxes for the different axis but also needed the same ratio throughout. Worm gearheads could not be used because of their inherently low efficiency and a helical of the correct ratio would be too large for the torque requirements.  The solution was to use a combination of a ceramic planetary gearhead and the new spiroid gearhead technology.  The multiplication of the two gearbox efficiencies is an impressive 72% while the equivalent ratio in a single ceramic planetary is only marginally better at 75%.

maxon motor to outer space again

SpaceX´s Dragon cargo capsule reached the International Space Station on Sunday, officials say.

After “an issue with propellant valve”, the spacecraft finally lifted off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida Friday morning.

The unmanned capsule is carrying more than 1,200 pounds of supplies for the crew and the crew´s experiments. The delivery flight was the second resupply mission by the private company under a contract with NASA.

maxon EC motors were used on the voyage to the ISS to rotate the solar arrays  to keep them aligned with the sun as Dragon orbited the earth, open the instrument bay door which contains navigation equipment, and lock in place the fixture that allows Dragon to be grappled by the space station’s robotic arm.

Roboy debut a success

On March 9 in Zurich Switzerland Roboy was successfully revealed to the public for the first time. As main project partner, maxon motor supplies various brushless DC drives that provide Roboy with controlled movement. In total, more than 50 maxon motors, combined with gearheads and encoders, have been installed in the robot. Additionally, all electronic components are from maxon motor.
