Maxon motor posts record revenues.

Throughout 2016 maxon invested significantly in expanding its facilities, bringing a large number of new technologies & innovations to market and expanded on their market leading position.

Sachseln/Switzerland – The maxon motor group further increased its revenues in 2016. Compared with the previous year, revenues grew by 5% to a new record level of CHF 422.5 million (from CHF 402.5 million in the previous year). The number of employees rose to 2,500 and for the first time in company history, maxon employs more people abroad than in Switzerland. The highest revenues were achieved in medical technology (43% market share), followed by industrial automation & robotics (26%) and aerospace industries (6.5%). Investment in R&D rose to CHF 28.5 million in 2016 (up from 27.1 million).

Maxon is increasingly becoming a specialist in mechatronics and systems, launching the first fully sterilisable drive system this year. Drive combination units consisting of brushless DC motor, gearhead and sensor are designed to withstand 1000 autoclave cycles. Maxon’s new DC motor controllers also stand up to extreme ambient conditions. The electronics are protected against contaminants and corrosion by a polymer coating. In addition, the device is highly resistant against vibrations and shocks.

For the e-bike market, maxon motor developed a new S-Peledec motor with a 500 Wh battery and intuitive operation for urban applications. The bike reaches speeds of up to 45 km/h and the device stands out because it can convert any regular bicycle into an e-bike. maxon is also active in the field of autonomous delivery robots. This is a market where the energy-efficient and lightweight drive systems by maxon are in particularly high demand.

Try before you buy: the maxon motor BIKEDRIVE.

The first of its kind, BIKEDRIVE, is now available for rent at the maxon test center in Giswil, Obwalden.

maxon motor developed a powerful three-part drive system that is able to be fitted by Bike dealers to nearly every bike. The BIKEDRIVE is a powerful motor, battery and throttle grip that delivers nearly three times the propulsion than muscle power alone. The same principals were applied from the expertise gained in the maxon motor Mars/ Space division, making this specialised technology available to everyone. maxon’s BIKEDRIVE is a first in the e-bike field providing nearly 50 Nm torque, in a compact design (weighing less than 6kgs) and achieving nearly 90% efficiency.

A selection of bikes is available at the testing facility: freeride, mountain, fat and city bikes. Registration is open for a special session on September 24 with former downhill world champion Albert Iten, who mentored maxon in the development of the e-bike motor.
