Drive systems for laboratory automation
As laboratory procedures and processes grow increasingly complex, automation is becoming more important. Here reliability, precision and speed play key roles: maxon motors and drive systems are used in various laboratory applications for dosing liquids, analyzing and transporting samples, and moving axes. The exceptional reliability, high efficiency, and excellent dynamics make it possible to accelerate laboratory procedures and perform these reliably without downtime. In particular with regards to the X-Y-Z axes, the high power density of maxon’s motors helps to save space and the high dynamics combined with a precision multi-axis controller facilitates optimization of the laboratory procedure and thus increases the throughput rate.
Drive systems for the packaging industry A whole range of maxon products are installed in the cordless top sta- pler and other products from Signode. Among the components used are motors, gearheads, encoders, hardware, firmware and software. With its brushless technology, maxon’s EC-i30 brushless motor used in power tools offers significantly higher efficiency, higher performance than a brush motor and is extremely low wear. By combining it with the GP 32 A plan- etary gearhead, EASY Encoder and custom ESCON controller developed specifically for this application, maxon provides an optimal drive system that fulfills all of the important criteria for a cordless top stapler. A robust and short build, high dynamics and efficiency, low weight, low-noise operation and long service life are the advantages of maxon’s drives. Perfect for a battery-operated power tool.
Drive systems for the oil and gas industry The production of oil and natural gas constantly requires new technologies and innovations in deep drilling technology. The equipment used for deep drilling is exposed to extremely harsh ambient conditions, including temperatures above 200°C, high pressure and extreme shocks and vibrations. maxon drive systems are used in a variety of drilling applications, hydraulic valve controllers, communication mechanisms and measuring instruments. The maxon Heavy Duty range of motors is designed for these operating conditions and features efficiency levels of up to 88% in air and over 70% in oil. In addition, these motors are designed to withstand extreme tempera- tures (up to 200°C) as well as pressure, shocks and vibrations. This makes them ideal and reliable solutions for applications in extremely harsh operating conditions.
