maxon motor establishes dedicated Aerospace team
Brushed DC and brushless DC motors by maxon are resistant to thermal and mechanical shocks making them suitable for aerospace applications.
Swiss precision engineering has been the backbone of maxon motors inclusion in such prestigious projects as the Rosetta Mission. The industry is making fascinating in-roads in space exploration as well as emerging airline technology such as the introduction of the Dreamliner aircraft. Coupled with our customer requirements the Aerospace team was born with a focus on delivering market specific communication, products and services.
With their long life span, high efficiency and compact design, the motors are well suited to the needs of applications in the aerospace industry. maxon motor has been a part of projects for climate control and air cushion systems they have also been utilised in autopilots, which significantly reduce the workload for pilot and co-pilots and thus increase the safety on board. Further applications maxon DC motors have been included in are air conditioning, brake flap adjustment, seat and display adjustment, flight recorders, solar sail adjustment, radar systems and luggage hatch adjustment. maxon brushless DC servo motor systems, reduction gearboxes and sensor systems guarantee an excellent climate at high altitudes.
The Aerospace team is headed up by Mr Roger Villiger, based in the head office in Switzerland, with a team specialising in aviation, defence and space projects.
