Motion control solutions

Flat motors with encoder

The external rotor BLDC motors DFA90 and DFA68 are now available with an integrated inductive 3-channel encoder with 4,096 CPR. Combine them with a Nanotec motor controller and gearbox.

High-performance servo motor

The APBA80 brushless DC motors feature an integrated encoder and a rated power of up to 1,000 W. They are ideal for battery-powered applications, such as AGVs or service robots.

New PD4-E/EB with brake

The PD4-E/EB brushless DC motors with integrated controller are now available in a version with integrated holding brake. They are ideally suited for use in Z axes and robotics applications.

Captive linear actuator with 56 mm flange

Due to its optimized design the LGA56 linear actuator reaches speeds of up to 150 mm/s. Nanotec offers a number of thread types, stroke lengths and thread leads to choose from.

Anti-backlash nuts with torsion spring

The LSNUT-AGAC and LSNUT-AGAE threaded nuts eliminate the axial backlash of the screw drive and readjust themselves during operation. They can be used with Nanotec’s external linear actuators.

Firmware update available now!

Plug & Drive Studio 2.1 comes with a firmware update that includes new features: processing of input from multiple sensors, slow speed mode, user-defined SI units and normalized PI parameters.

Brake for wheel drives

For applications that require repeated and dynamic braking, the WD wheel drives are now available with a pre-mounted motor brake. Just select the required reduction ratio and a matching motor.

Geared motor for small spaces

Combining Nanotec’s brushless DC motor DFA68 with the new high-torque planetary gearbox GP56 results in a very short geared motor with torques of up to 26Nm.

Wheel drives for service robots

The WD wheel drives consist of a wheel, integrated planetary gearbox and bearing in one unit. Combined with Nanotec’s motors and controllers, they are ideal for use in service robots or AGVs.

Stepper with FluxFocus technology

Due to Nanotec’s new FluxFocus technology, the SCB56 motor achieves the highest torque/size ratio of all standard NEMA 23 stepper motors on the market. Its max. holding torque is 2.95 Nm.

Actuators with more thrust

Thanks to their special stator geometry and optimized magnet materials, the Nanotec actuators generate considerably more force than comparable actuators.

High-torque gearboxes

For applications that require a high torque, Nanotec offers planetary gearboxes in one- and two-stage versions with mounting flanges for all compatible brushless DC and stepper motors.

High-performance motor controller

The CL4-E motor controller is characterized by high performance and compact design. It has a peak power of 1050 W and operates at 58 V. Additional heat sinks are not required.

Nanotec expands management team

Nanotec has expanded its management team by appointing Dr. Christian Hainzlmaier as Managing Director. He joined the company in 2019 and heads R&D, production and quality.

Nanotec is among the TOP 100!

In the independent TOP 100 benchmarking competition, Nanotec convinced the jurors with its innovation management, placing it among the top innovators in Germany in 2021.

Durmus Özcan named Sales Director

On March 1, Durmus Özcan assumed responsibility for sales management at Nanotec. In this role he is part of the executive management and will work on expanding Nanotec’s international business.

Captive linear actuators – how they work

The integrated linear guide is the main characteristic of captive linear actuators. The lead screw travels back and force in a linear motion as our video shows. Just watch.

Non-captive linear actuators – design

Linear actuators without linear guide need an external guide to prevent the lead screw from rotating. Watch our video to learn more about the movement of the rotor and the lead screw.
