Taunton, MA -- Motion Control Products - maxon Group extend their heartfelt congratulations to Emirates Team New Zealand. In the historical 36th America’s Cup that endured extra challenges including Covid-19, race cancellations and delays meaning interruptions and last-minute tactical changes, the Kiwis have retained the oldest trophy in international sporting history.

Creating a boat from simulation and the use of AI technology were big risks for Emirates Team New Zealand, who were frank about the lack of boat-on-boat racing experience in this new AC75 class at the beginning of the Cup. This meant the team had to lift their game and learn fast, taking key lessons out of regatta as they moved forwards one race at a time. The risks paid off for the Kiwis who forged a spectacular win 7 races to 3. Winning skipper, Peter Burling, said “…..we have been learning all week, and today we really showed what this boat can do - and so to win on home waters is something our entire team is incredibly proud of.”

Back in 2018 maxon joined Emirates Team New Zealand as an Official Supplier, supplying 480W DC motors with 42mm gearbox combinations, and EPOS motor controllers. This particular DC motor combination was selected because of its outstanding power density and ability within even the harshest of environments. The America’s Cup AC75 Class Rule allows the use of electric motors to operate hydraulic valves, drive clutches, rudders and foils. Teams may also use motors for driving simulator platforms and numerous test jigs.

maxon motor Australia Managing Director, Brett Motum, said “We’ve been watching the races globally across our offices cheering on Emirates Team New Zealand. We’re proud to have supported Emirates Team New Zealand as an Official Supplier and see them cement their place in history winning this 36th America’s Cup match”.

This is the fourth time that New Zealand has triumphed in the America’s Cup and is another victory to add to their three previous successes. Well done team and congratulations to Luna Rossa Prada Pirelli who put up a great challenge.
