“The silent tension during the operation was not affected by the instrument’s quiet humming” is a typical compliment made by doctors to the equipment manufacturer. High torque but quiet is a must in medical technology to make handling instruments a more pleasant experience. New standards have now been set by maxon motor with the new and extremely low-noise Koax-Drive KD 32.

The unique and innovative torque conversion means that the new Koax-Drive KD 32 runs extremely quietly, even under a high load. This is a breakthrough for all applications in noise-sensitive environments. For the ingenious inner workings of the completely redesigned gearhead there is a patent pending.
With a diameter of 32 mm and a coaxial arrangement on the drive and output shaft, the Koax-Drive is also ideal for use in applications where space is at a premium. The gearhead has an efficiency factor of around 60% with a reduction ratio of 1:32.
In maxon’s modular system, it can be combined with several maxon EC motors which are optimally pre-installed at the factory. In conjunction with maxon motors, the Koax-Drive is ideally suited for quiet handtools and equipment.
