Brush massage system for your shower

Shower system maxon DC motors

Maxon DC motors are found in a massage system that fits to nearly any shower, converting your everyday shower into a wellness experience.

The focus of a Swiss company’s new massage brush system is designed as an overall experience incorporating massage for tired/ sore muscles, brushing away dead skin cells and supporting blood circulation. The system is a rotating brush that moves horizontally and vertically. It automatically travels up and down a rail, with the option to program a personal massage and using a remote control.

Battery operated, the brush rotation is powered by a maxon DC motor, A-max 32, combined with a planetary gearhead, GP32. For the system’s height adjustment, there is a brushed DC motor, DCX 22S, fitted to a GPX 22 planetary gearhead. The DCX combination motor and gearhead can be assembled online using maxon’s online configuration portal.

Overall, the conditions in a shower – steam, cleaning products, water and humidity – are no problem for maxon’s reliable DC motors and Planetary gearheads.

New! Brushed DC micro motors and gearheads in 6mm and 8mm diameters.

6mm 8mm GPX DCX ENX

For applications requiring a DC micro motor that is robust, powerful and delivers high performance.

maxon have released two new brushed DC micro motors available in 6mm and 8mm diameter as part of their DCX range. The DC motors have a robust design with maximum power density from the high-performance neodymium magnets.

Also available are matching gearheads, the planetary gearhead 6mm and planetary gearhead 8mm, as well as two motor controllers, the ENX 6/8 OPT (optical) and ENX 6/8 MAG (magnetic). The matching planetary gearheads are welded directly to the motor and offer reduction ratios of up to 1000:1. Both are able to transmit short-term torques of 60 and 150 mNm respectively. The motor encoders are available in two versions for each diameter and work with voltages as low as 3V, therefore making them highly suitable for medical devices. The encoders come in a magnetic version and for magnetically sensitive applications, the optical encoder is available.

These micro motors are configurable online and available for dispatch in 11 working days from date order placed.

Bringing two worlds together.

Kinetic Art

maxon DC motors bring together robotics engineering & art: Korean artist U-Ram Choe created a sculpture that appears to breathe all on its own.

A brushed maxon RE-max 17 motor and gearhead are the powerful yet smooth force behind the breathing motion of the kinetic sculpture the Custos Cavum. Created by U-Ram Choe, this piece has its own story that weaves along mythical worlds. The Custos Cavum is a guardian of holes between two different realms, opening the holes by gnawing at them with their large front teeth. The 90% reliability of the motors was key to bringing the sculpture to life. Being in constant use, the DC motors needed to be 100% trustworthy.

To see these mythical creatures spring to life watch the video here.

maxon brushed DC motors in miniature model trains.


These model railway trains aren’t for sitting in the trophy cabinet. The models are exact, albeit mini, replicas of Swiss trains. The maxon brushed DC motors in the trains are robust, withstanding high temperatures and overvoltage without interruption.

Maxon A-max brushed DC motors and DCX motors are particularly selected in these model trains. Built by a Swiss company, the motors were selected for their robust operation and ability to withstand heat and overvoltage. The motors ease of control also fits with digital technology that is becoming more apparent in model rail-making. With arduous demands placed on the motors they to live up to the models reputation of premium quality and trustworthy mechanics.

The brushed A-max DC motors offer excellent value for money with their automated production and optimised design. In sizes ranging from 12mm to 32mm and 0.5 to 20W of power. The A-max series longevity proves its reliability. The newer DCX range of motors are increasingly used in the models, offering diameters of 10mm to 35mm, low noise, high-torque, high-quality and ability to be configured online and ready for delivery within 11 working days. Select from graphite and precious metal brushes, sintered and ball bearings amongst many other customisable features.

Bring out the best in your DC motor with the right motor control.



For more than 25 years maxon motor have focused on motion control of brushed and brushless DC motors, evolving from stand-alone functionality to complete integrated drive systems.

Long gone are the days of placing a DC motor to run by itself in an application. Developments in technology, diagnostics, networking and efficient safety have contributed to the evolution of basic motor functionality to present-day complete small systems. To one end, maxon motor offer simple current & speed controllers and at the other end are controllers for high-performance torque, speed or position control as well as motor integrated devices. The new EPOS4 controller, released in April 2016, stands out from every other maxon DC motor position controller before it because of the controllers ability to achieve maximum power density in very small spaces. There is also the option to program the EPOS4 via various interfaces allowing for a tailored DC drive system that furnishes optimum coordination of the individual components. It also negates the need to possess intricate knowledge of brushed and brushless DC motors.
