A compact drive system from Maxon Motor is said to have revolutionised the creation of bottle caps for wine, making it simpler, more reliable and cheaper.

In addition to controlling local inputs and outputs, program selection, start and stop signals and other processes, MCD is said to offer a high level of reliability.

The MCD also reduces the number of parts necessary to perform the role.

The compact drive houses a 60W brushless DC motor and a Maxon ceramic gearhead GP 32 C (reduction ratio 18:1) to further reduce wear.

It also uses a very small motion controller from Maxon’s EPOS range to handle complex instructions and reduce the amount of space the drive as a whole takes up.
