DC motors for moving sculptures.
A German artist has created animal sculptures up to 2.5m long using maxon DC motors and recycled bike parts.
With the ability to walk and turn their mechanical heads from side-to-side the pack move slowly visiting festivals all over Europe. Three powerful maxon DC motors and gearheads make this possible.
The drives are incorporated into the sculpture seamlessly, so much so, that the DC motors are virtually unseen. There are a number of motor-gearhead combinations, all of them robust and small in size. The drives have maxon motors special ironless winding with 90% energy efficiency and powerful torque to drive the sculptures forward.
