maxon's new products this year are entirely based around the theme of “more torque and more dynamics in the smallest of spaces." The spotlight will be on the new ECX PRIME 6: the first size from the new ECX PRIME motor family.

The new ECX PRIME products are particularly powerful, brushless motors with 4-pole rotors and ironless windings. The ECX PRIME 6 in its M HP version is available for the first time with a motor diameter of just 6 millimeters. The technology, which has already proven itself in larger motors, has been further developed based on customized designs, and engineered for commercial production in such small diameters. The result is a small powerhouse with speeds of up to 50,000 rpm and continuous torques of up to 0.57 mNm. The ECX PRIME 6 is suitable for demanding applications with limited space or where special performance or control dynamics are required, as in the case of prosthetic hands, surgical devices, and implants.
