Drive systems for the automotive industry.

On the racetrack or on the road: Our drives are moving things.

maxon motors ensure that drivers stay on track – always. For example, they are used to make the steering wheel vibrate when a vehicle crosses the middle line. However, our drives are also used in other parts of cars, such as air conditioning systems, power-assisted steering, wind deflectors in convertibles, or fuel and injection pumps. Our components are also installed in racing engines used in the Formula 1 or Formula Renault 3.5. In the latter, they control the electronic throttle. They operate precisely and reliably even under demanding conditions.
