Our micromotors move anything that needs to rotate reliably and with precision – since 1961. At maxon motor, about 2500 employees develop and build electric drives that pack some real power. About 1200 of our employees work at our headquarters in Sachseln, Switzerland. Our DC motors are leading the industry worldwide. They are used wherever requirements are demanding and engineers cannot afford to compromise: maxon motors drive NASA's Mars rovers. They are installed in insulin pumps, hand-held surgical devices, robots, race cars, passenger planes, camera lenses, tattoo machines, and high-precision industrial systems. Our drives are made by people who take pride in the quality of their work.
