Launching the latest edition of its catalogue, maxon motor would like to remind design engineers that provision of free literature is just the start of the support it has to offer… which ultimately extends to the design of new products where necessary.
The 300-page publication, containing details of more than 147,000 precision motors, gearheads, encoders, controllers and other components, is intended by maxon as an essential reference work that should be on every engineer’s shelf. Each free catalogue also contains a free CD-ROM that holds the same information plus the ‘maxon selection program’.
In most cases it should be easy to choose the most appropriate components for any particular system by referring to the data presented. Useful advice, diagrams and formulae are given to help in this process.
The maxon selection program takes this further by automatically identifying individual products, and combinations of products, that closely match the design’s requirements – with no need for laborious manual calculations. It’s even possible to take CAD images of maxon components and drop them straight into the design.
But while information technology is a vital tool, maxon recognises that some problems require the help of a human being!
“At maxon motor uk we have a team of highly qualified and experienced product engineers, ready, willing and able to work with designers on their projects,” says CEO Keith Ellenden. “They are all engineers, just like our customers, and they really love a challenge. They will come out to look at the project, do the calculations and present the solution. And if the answer doesn’t lie within our 147,000 off-the-peg solutions, we can create one that’s tailor-made.”
He continues: “The level of support we offer to design engineers is unique and is matched by the quality and sheer reliability of our products. That’s why maxon is specified in so many applications where component failure is simply not an option – like in medical devices, in space missions and in equipment operating in the depths of the ocean.”
As ever, the new catalogue contains a number of innovations, developed in response to customer needs. These include an expanded range of EPOS (Easy POsitioning System) products and other controllers, for which there has been a very high demand.
