The end of an era – last de­liv­ery of the maxon S mo­tor

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH -

Man­u­fac­tured for al­most 40 years, the last de­liv­er­ies of the maxon S mo­tor are head­ing out into the field. It has been sur­passed by its mod­ern re­place­ments in terms of power den­sity and pro­duc­tion costs but maxon says the qual­ity and longevity of the mo­tor – even by to­day’s stan­dards – would still set a bench­mark for many DC mo­tor man­u­fac­tur­ers.

The mo­tor has been re­li­ably used in far-reach­ing ap­pli­ca­tions from aerospace and med­i­cal de­vices to ba­sic pump­ing and con­veyor belt prod­ucts, says the man­u­fac­turer. To many, it’s just another prod­uct re­tire­ment; to maxon mo­tor, it is the end of a fan­tas­tic era.­quiry #150804b.
