Sachseln, Switzerland Sep 15, 2020. The Swiss-based drive specialist maxon, renowned for its Mars motors, is joining forces with the robotics startup ANYbotics to supply the drive systems of the autonomous ANYmal inspection robot, both companies said in a press release.

ANYmal is an autonomous, four-legged robot that is capable of inspecting and monitoring industrial systems and is destined to also take on dangerous maintenance tasks in the future. The robot can even cope with difficult infrastructures such as stairs and inclines, and is used in a wide variety of industries, maxon and ANYbotics said. “The robot will soon be marketed in large quantities.”

“The maxon Group contributes 60 years of experience in drive technology to the partnership, as well as a global production infrastructure and validated processes, and will help to advance the industrialization and commercialization of ANYmal – with competitive, high-performance drive systems, twelve of which are used in each robot.”

ANYbotics recently won the Swiss Economic Award 2020 and has been chosen as the best young entrepreneur in Switzerland in the Hightech/Biotech category. “The company has valuable experience in robotics – a market that offers great potential for maxon.”
