Aerospace Drive systems for the aerospace industry For more than 20 years, drive technology from maxon has powered the Mars rovers on the Red Planet. And every modern long-haul airliner has hundreds of drive systems on board today. Back here on the ground, we work closely with our customers to develop drive solutions consisting of individual components or sophisticated technical systems for passenger aircraft, helicopters, spacecraft, and even autonomous and uncrewed aerial vehicles. maxon guarantees the unrivaled quality of the efficient, reliable, and powerful drive systems for the aerospace industry. maxon has been certified according to EN 9100 since 2012. The standard has been drawn up especially for companies that develop and produce components for the aerospace industry. In our own labs, we test how the drives cope with vibrations, shock, and cold, as well as heat in accordance with aviation standard DO-160, and in vacuum. The name maxon is synonymous with customized precision and stands for an extensive support network that guarantees the highest Swiss standards all over the world. Our dedicated aerospace team assists customers with simple applications as well as complex, multi-year development projects. maxon engineers have transferred the knowledge they have gained from numerous special projects, such as the drives for the Mars missions, to other aerospace projects and further developed this expertise for serial production. Our state- of-the-art technology and extensive laboratory tests make this possible. We are forever expanding the possibilities of aerospace technology, both crewed and uncrewed. The new urban mobility made possible by air taxis, counts on safe, efficient and compact actuators from maxon. Thanks to many years of experience in aviation, our experts know what it takes.
