Motion control solutions

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.

Easy software integration

The software library NanoLib facilitates the integration of Nanotec’s motor controllers/drives into existing software applications. It supports C++, C# and Python and communication via fieldbus.

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.

Stepper with FluxFocus technology

Due to Nanotec’s FluxFocus technology, the SCB6018 motor achieves the highest torque/size ratio of all NEMA 24 stepper motors on the market. Its max. holding torque is 3.6 Nm.

For I/O-based applications

With the CSL3, Nanotec now offers an easy-to-configure controller with 16 movement profiles for brushless DC motors with up to 72 W rated power and 3 A rated current.

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.

Minimize noise and vibration

The low-noise planetary gearboxes of the GP56-N series are ideally suited for use in medical devices and building automation. They come in nine versions, with one or two stages.

NEMA 6 Stepper motor

With a flange size of only 14 mm the stepper motor STA1418 is ideal for applications with space limitations such as in the medical industry, in lab automation or optical technologies.

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.

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.

New holding brake

The BCD brake is designed as a holding brake for BLDC and stepper motors with flange size NEMA 23/24. It comes with a shaft and an NEMA 23 flange and is attached to the front of the motor.

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.

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.
high-performance controller for industrial applications, OEMs, automation, medical devices

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.

How to find the right linear actuators

Linear Actuators – Types and function

What are the different types of linear actuator and how do they differ? How do I find the right lead screw and why is the thread lead so important? Our experts will answer these questions.

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.
