Brushless & Stepper Motors, Linear Actuators – Europe

Nanotec Electronic GmbH & Co. KG headquartered in Feldkirchen (Munich) is one of the leading manufacturers of motors and controllers for high-performance drive solutions. The company has been developing and marketing a broad range of products since 1991. Nanotec technology is primarily used in automation systems, laboratory automation, medical engineering, the packaging industry and semiconductor production.

In 1996, Nanotec came out with the first Plug & Drive motor with an integrated controller, setting a milestone that would be central to the company's growth. Today, Nanotec continues to focus heavily on research and development to create drive solutions that closely meet the needs and requirements of our customers. The R&D department and low-volume production are located in Feldkirchen, whereas high volumes are produced at the company site in China and then further processed in Germany.

More than 80% of all products are manufactured according to customer-specific requirements, in both small and large quantities. 

For CEO Stephan Huber, CTO Dr. Christian Hainzlmaier, CFO Elke Zec and CSO Durmus Özcan, the increasing automation is an important future trend that opens up new potential – in production processes as well as in service robotics.

Awarded for innovation!

In January 2022, Nanotec received the TOP 100 award for the second time in a row. This award honors especially innovative small- and medium-sized enterprises. 

On behalf of compamedia – the organizer of the TOP 100 innovation competition – scientist Prof. Dr. Nikolaus Franke from the Vienna University of Economics and Business and his team examined the innovative capacity of small- and medium-sized enterprises in Germany. Not only was the innovative output measured but also the innovative potential of the participants. 

In this scientifically independent benchmarking competition, Nanotec convinced in the area of innovation management in its size class, placing it among the top innovators in Germany. 


Standard products and individualized solutions for an optimal drive

When drive systems with high precision, reliability and extensive functionality are required to fit in small spaces, Nanotec supplies the necessary technology – either as standard solutions or individualized designs.

Our stepper and BLDC motors and linear actuators, in sizes beginning at 10 mm, together with a variety of gearboxes and encoders, combine into a modular system with over 100,000 possible combinations. In addition, you can choose from a range of shaft, flange and connector types that rapidly and reliably connect to existing device architecture. The performance and resonance behavior of Nanotec motors is optimized by intelligent motor controllers that meet the latest technology standards.
