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.

Flat external rotor motor

The DFA90 motor has a rated power of up to 170 W and comes with two different windings for 24 and 48 V. The 22-pole construction ensures smooth operation at low speeds.

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.

BLDC replaces AC servo

With a rated power of up to 400 W, the BLDC motors of the APBA60 series match the power of AC servos with 60 mm flange. They are rated IP65 and come with encoder or with encoder and brake.

Actuators with more thrust

An improved stator geometry and optimized magnetic materials have resulted in the development of a new line of linear actuators with a significantly higher torque and more thrust.

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.

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.
