Brushless DC Motors

BLDC motors are highly efficient and cover a wide speed range. Nanotec offers internal and external rotor motors as well as slotless motors that run smoothly and have a long service life.

Stepper Motors

Nanotec stepper motors are available in many sizes with or without gearbox, brake or encoder. Stepper motors are especially suitable for applications that require high torque and low speed.

Motors with Integrated Controller/Drive

Brushless DC motors with controller provide precise position, velocity and torque control. They are fully programmable and can be controlled via fieldbus, clock direction or analog input.

Motor Controllers/Drives

The Nanotec motor controllers are designed for both brushless DC motors and stepper motors. They are suitable for closed loop control with encoder, Hall sensors or sensorless control.


Especially for service robotics applications, Nanotec offers wheel drives with fieldbus interface as well as a development and evaluation platform for prototyping AGVs.


Plug & Drive Studio is a free software for commissioning and programming controllers and tuning the motor. The software supports CAN (IXXAT), serial, Ethernet and USB interfaces.

Linear Actuators

Nanotec offers linear actuators in three versions: captive, non-captive and external. They can be ordered in various lengths, with trapezoidal or ACME thread, and optionally with encoder.

Lead Screws and Threaded Nuts

Our lead screws for linear actuators come with metric ISO, trapezoidal or ACME thread. Matching threaded nuts are available in various shapes and versions.


Nanotec offers planetary gearboxes and worm gearboxes for brushless DC motors and stepper motors. High-torque planetary gearboxes provide high torque and high profitability.


The performance of motors can be enhanced with optical, reflective or magnetic encoders that are resistant to vibration acceleration and suitable for a wide temperature range.


The Nanotec holding brakes have a compact flange design and asbestos-free friction linings. They are wear-resistant and easy to install thanks to their pre-adjusted air gap.


An extensive range of accessories that simplifies wiring and putting the Nanotec products into operation is available for motors, linear drives and controllers.
