Aerospace Drive systems for the aerospace industry
For more than 20 years, drive technology by maxon has been making the Mars rovers on the Red Planet mobile. These days, every modern long-haul airliner has several hundred drive systems on board. Back here on the ground, maxon and its customers develop drive solutions consisting of individual components or sophisticated technical systems for pas- senger aircraft, helicopters, spacecraft and even unmanned aerial vehicles. maxon guarantees the unrivaled quality of its efficient, reliable and powerful drive systems for the aerospace industry.
Aviation → Aircraft control systems: actuators for small control surfaces, emergency fuel shut-off valve, fly-by-wire control systems, flaps, and air-conditioning systems → On-board communication and cabin equipment: actuators for antennas, window shade systems, power seat adjustment, toilet flushing, and locking devices for overhead baggage compartments Space travel → Valve drives for rocket engines, solar array drive and deployment mechanisms, and launch/abort or separation mechanisms → Mission-specific mechanisms for research spacecraft and robotic probes
Unmanned aerial vehicles → Observation: inspection, agriculture, mapping and delivery drones → Payload mechanisms: control surface actuators, electro-optics, LiDAR and winch mechanisms → Drive systems consisting of an optimized combination of motor, controller and propeller for multirotor, fixed-wing and unmanned VTOL aircraft
