Taunton, MA — Maxon Group of Taunton, MA has hired John Uzzolino to head up the business development activities for the Parvalux product line in the United States. In December, Maxon Group acquired the British geared motor manufacturer Parvalux Electric Motor, Ltd. (For additional information Click Here)The acquisition expands the maxon portfolio with DC drives in the power range of up to 1.5 kW, as well as an attractive expansion of maxon group’s already broad motor and motion control portfolio including AC Motors and Worm gearboxes. The acquisition and the addition of Mr. Uzzolino to the team demonstrates maxon group’s continuing commitment to becoming a provider of complete systems. Ultimately, the acquisition opens interesting new markets requiring larger drives and motion systems such as patient handling within the medical technology sector (stair lifts, electric wheelchairs, etc.) and industrial applications (robotics and transport systems, conveyors).

John Uzzolino comes to maxon Group with 20 years’ of experience in industrial motion control and mechatronics applications. John started his career as a Sales Engineer working with a high tech distribution company, focusing on solving motion control and mechatronic applications for machine builders in the Northeast U.S. John then went to work for a local machine builder, helping them bring their automated test and measurement products to the North American market. Most recently, John worked for two European control manufacturers, helping them develop customers in the U.S. market.

As the Business Development Manager for Parvalux, John will be responsible for managing and promoting the Parvalux products in the United States, initially focusing on the industrial and e-mobility markets. “I’m excited to be on board and help bring a strong European brand to the U.S. market,” says John Uzzolino. “Parvalux has positioned themselves well to be a high-quality product at a competitive price, while offering both standard and highly customized solutions globally. Combining this with the ability to now manufacture locally in Massachusetts, positions Parvalux well to build a strong brand here in the U.S.”

Taunton, MA – Maxon precision motors, a division of maxon motor of Sachsein, Switzerland, has announced the opening of a new manufacturing facility in Taunton, MA. The two-story, 59,000 sq. foot facility is located within the Myles Standish Business Park in Taunton at 125 Dever Drive.

Company officials led by Chris Blake, mpm President welcomed state/local officials and invited guests to a grand opening event at the facility this morning which included a ribbon cutting ceremony and tours of the building.

The new building will provide design engineering and production operations, significantly advancing maxon precision motors presence and capabilities in North America. Its opening is an integral component in an ongoing global growth strategy underway by the privately owned Swiss company, in business since 1961.

maxon motor is the leading provider of precision DC motors and drive technology with distribution and sales in 40 countries worldwide. maxon’s products include brushed and brushless DC motors, gearheads, sensors/encoders and customized drives. Its highly engineered products are used in a wide range of industries and applications including medical technology, industrial automation, robotics, security and communications, aerospace, automotive, and measurement/testing.

The new facility replaces a former sales/distribution and assembly operation at 101 Waldron Road in Fall River, MA, and will significantly expand maxon precision motors capabilities and employment. USA customers will benefit from closer collaboration that will provide value added opportunities with faster turnaround. Plus, a localized supply chain with domestic vendors will help build stronger customer relationships while reducing lead times.

“Our vision is to be an integral part of maxon’s global growth strategy,” explained Mr. Blake, who heads up the US management team. “With expanded engineering services in place, our customers will enjoy a closer collaboration on design and manufacturing and have a more direct line to our team during concept development, which will include rapid prototyping to better execute customer-specific products.”

Motion Control – Maxon Motor Introduces The First Sterilizable Drive System!

Brushless DC motor, gearhead, and encoder from one single source

Maxon motion control Sterilizable Brushless Drive System

With the ENX EASY, maxon motor’s NEW ENX EASY is a sterilizable encoder for use with maxon’s brushless DC motors. This opens up a range of new possibilities in medical technology.

Maxon Logo

Fall River, MA — Motion Control Components – This is the world’s first steam sterilizable encoder ENX EASY. It is available in an incremental (1024 counts) and absolute version (4096 steps), both designed for 1,000 autoclave cycles.

As of now, the ENX EASY can be combined with matching BLDC motors and planetary gearheads. The encoder can be integrated into the brushless drives ECX 13 and ECX 16 SPEED (up to 120,000 rpm and 104 W) without any increase in length. When the gearheads GPX 13 and GPX 16 SPEED (0.2 Nm max. continuous torque) are added to the combination, customers receive a fully sterilizable positioning system. This opens up an entire new range of possibilities in medical technology. The compact and robust design is ideal especially for power tools

Maxon automation motion control Spindle Drive

Maxon Logo

Fall River, MA – Automation Motion Control – Spindle drives are the perfect solution for linear positioning systems, lens adjustment, or syringe pumps. If the drive also has to be compact, then maxon motor’s GP 6 S spindle gear is the perfect choice. To provide a cost-effective alternative to the ceramic version, it is now also available with a metal spindle.

Combinations with maxon DC motors

The GP 6 S spindle gear is suitable for a wide variety of linear drive solutions. The maximum feed velocity is 15 mm/s, at a force of 10 N. Integrated ball bearings ensure that this drive stands up to high axial loads. The gear easily combines with the maxon DC brushed motor (RE 6) and DC brushless motor (EC 6).

More data and details about the new metal version of the GP 6 S spindle gear are available online atwww.shop.maxonmotor.ch.
