Medical Drive systems for medical technology

maxon drives are used in numerous fields of medicine. Our motors provide reliable, high-quality performance in high-precision devices such as active implants, insulin pumps, surgical robots, power tools, and hand and foot prostheses. Drive components for medical technology applications must meet extremely demanding requirements: precision, sterilizability, low noise levels, durability, and minimal heat build-up of the DC and EC drives are essential. maxon’s medical business unit specializes in developing and producing drive systems for a variety of medical applications. Our engineers are well versed in the technical requirements of the medical technology industry, whether for active implants or robot-assisted rehabilitation. In close partnership with our customers, we develop the perfect drive sys- tem based on a modular standard solution or create a fully customized solution tailored to the customer's specifications.

Active implants Many therapeutic approaches prove to be far more effective within the body than external methods. Whether precise dosage of medications or supporting heart or muscle functions, maxon drives do it all with maximum efficiency and reliability. Professional project organization and a proven risk management system enable the smooth execution of medical technology projects in risk classes IIb and III. All production processes, production facilities, testing sys- tems, and documentation meet the highest quality guidelines.

Surgical robots Robot-assisted or robotic surgery is mainly used in minimally invasive surgery and makes it possible to carry out all kinds of complex interventions with much more precision, flexibility, control, and efficiency than with conventional techniques. There are two different methods: either with a direct telemanipulator or with com- puter control. maxon offers a wide range of customer-specific products and system solutions for both methods in order to meet complex customer requirements with respect to force feedback, safety, standards, traceability, etc., and to make a sig- nificant contribution to medical technology. The benefits for the patient are a much shorter surgery and healing time, as well as fewer complications and less risk of infection and scarring.

Surgical power tools In many surgical interventions, doctors rely on power tools. The areas of appli- cation are extremely varied, ranging from sawing bones to other small-bone and large-bone applications to stapling tissue structures. For each case, maxon offers the perfect drive solution from different motor and gearhead families. These brushless electric motors are characterized by extremely high power density and, not least, can be autoclaved up to 1,000 times.

Exoskeletons and prostheses For people with a physical disability, everyday tasks such as climbing stairs or opening doors can represent a huge challenge. maxon has been heavily involved in this field for years, providing technical solutions that make life easier for those affected. For exoskeletons and prostheses, we have developed motors optimized for torque and weight, as well as system solutions. With our mix of engineering disciplines, we also offer the possibility of tailored approaches for specific applications. maxon will conti- nue to drive the development of products and system solutions for exoskeletons and prostheses in the future.

It requires companies and employees to reduce potential risks in the aerospace industry to a minimum by structuring the design and manufacturing processes accordingly. At maxon, this standard is applied for customer-specific products on request – except for A-max motors and controllers. SN EN ISO 13485 Is an internationally accepted quality norm for medical products that requires management and staff to ensure that the design and manufacture of medical products minimizes the potential risks for patients. Traceability of processes and raw materials is also ensured. At maxon, this standard is applied for customer-specific products on request. IATF 16949 maxon is IATF 16949 certified. The IATF (International Automotive Task Force) is a group of automotive manufacturers and associations that defines the quality requirements in the automotive industry. The IATF 16949 standard is an international technical specification and quality management standard for the entire supply chain of the automotive industry. It is based on the EN ISO 9001 standard and describes the special requirements that apply for the development and manufacturing of products for the automotive market. At maxon, it is implemented within the scope of customer-specific projects.

Drives manufactured by maxon can be absolutely relied upon even under the most difficult conditions – they have for example been in use on Mars for years. But maxon DC motors do not only do their job in space, they also function in tough conditions on and deep below the surface of the Earth flawlessly and efficiently. The quality management system of maxon is an integral part of the overall management system. The operational and organizational structures, the powers and responsibilities, as well as the process and procedure assessments are documented for all employees. The quality management system is enacted, maintained and periodically verified. View certificates:

EU Directives 2006/42/EC Machinery Directive

maxon products are designed for installation in complete devices and are considered incomplete machines according to EU Directive 2006/42/EC (Machinery Directive). They are designed to be installed in machines or other incomplete machines and are therefore not CE marked. It is the responsibility of the end device manufacturer to identify the relevant directives and issue a declaration of conformity. 2011/65/EU RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU and (EU) 2017/2102 incl. 2015/863/EU (RoHS) on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment regulates certain prerequisites for placing electrical and electronic equipment on the market. The RoHS directive restricts the use of certain substances in electrical and electronic equipment. The substances listed in Annex II of the directive must not exceed a specified maximum concentration, unless an exemption under Annex III and IV of the directive is applicable to be respective application. The RoHS directives are not directly applicable to components. Irrespective of this, maxon complies with the substance restrictions of this directive – taking into account the exemptions listed in Annex III and IV (e.g. 6a, 6b, 6c …) – for most of the catalog products. Those maxon products that do not correspond to the directive are identified on the respective product page. A detailed conformity assessment is available from maxon upon request. It is the responsibility of the distributor of the electrical or electronic equipment to assess whether the exemption approvals are applicable for the end product. 1907/2006/EU REACH All chemical substances used in maxon products conform to Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 December 2006 concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH). Corresponding REACH certificates can be requested from maxon.

UL and CSA Certain applications and markets require UL- or CSA-certified motors and drives. maxon's standard catalog products do not have such certification. However, we are able to certify our motors and drives in accordance with UL or CSA standards. Please contact your local maxon partner for more information.
