Can active control help tiltrotor aircraft fly faster?
A new study at the University of Bath is investigating how rapidly deploying spoiler-like devices, called mini-tabs, could help future eVTOL designs fly faster. Mini-tabs could aerodynamically counteract the damaging vibrations caused by whirl flutter - a catastrophic instability that occurs at high flight speeds. maxon has provided the motion solution to test the effectiveness of mini-tabs on a novel wind tunnel test rig.
When to choose a 4pole DC motor ?
Selecting a DC micromotor for use in applications from aerospace through to downhole drilling inspection, a 4pole motor has advantages. A 4pole design is stronger than a 2pole equivalent but can also fit within the same space and weight envelope. Greg Dutfield of maxon UK explains.
maxon datasheets explained
Find out how the DC motor data on a datasheet can help choose the right product for your application. Ronak Samani and Gaz Satkunathas, Technical Engineers at maxon UK & Ireland, explain the comprehensive information in a maxon datasheet.

Can DC motors be used at high temperatures?
Those familiar with the maxon catalog and technical specifications will have noticed that maximum ambient and winding temperatures are specified for our motors.
Why is this?
Battling COVID-19 One Pump at a Time
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Winnipeg Ventilator project had to make some critical choices in design and component selection, particularly for the motor used in the mechanical pump design.
“The transition to brushless dc motors was key"
Samir Bouabdallah is an expert in drone technology and founder of an exciting startup. How will the drone market develop, in his opinion, and what is required of the motors in the flying robots?
Delta vs Y Winding Arrangements
Although, the winding arrangement does not play a pivotal role in one’s motor selection, it is valuable information to be aware of.
