maxon motor introduces MARS – a new facility for mechatronics.

The Swiss Drive specialist has established a new complex in Giswil, Switzerland dedicated solely to DC motors in complete mechatronic drive systems.

Opened in November 2015, the Maxon Advanced Robotics & Systems (MARS) is a production and development site with approximately 20 employees committed to mechatronic drive technology solutions using maxon DC motors. The main arm of maxon motor manufactures DC motors, gearheads and controllers. MARS will combine the parts such as DC motor, gearhead, controller and software so that it can be integrated directly into a customer’s applications as a full custom sub assembly.

MARS is also where maxon motor will manufacture, engineer and sell BIKEDRIVE, the e-bike motor that was released mid-2015. Other products include an innovative drive unit with a dual-clutch gearhead for use in robotics.
