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.

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.

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.

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.

Test bench for e-bikes

This test bench of the Aalen University is used to test complete e-bikes instead of individual components. The gear-shifting behavior of the rider is reproduced by the Nanotec stepper motor PD2-N.
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.

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.

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.
