Drive technology and integration: how much design freedom?
While the development of e-commerce requires the design of compact AGVs, the democratisation of autonomous and connected e-mobility vehicles poses safety challenges. In this context, companies need to develop motorised solutions, with specific designs.
In spring 2019, the famous cathedral of Notre-Dame was damaged in a devastating fire. However, the Paris fire department prevented the complete destruction of the building – with the help of a special unit.
The IDX is a new compact drive consisting of a motor, gearbox, and controller. The responsible sales engineer Sébastien Gissien explains why maxon is taking a different approach with this product and which markets will benefit from the new drive.
Many applications would benefit from a brushless motor without a sensor. There are various options for realizing this. A method developed by maxon is now setting new standards for precision and reliability.
