Nanotec - BLDC motor with high power density

With the DB80, Nanotec presents an EC motor which – relative to its design size – exhibits exceptionally high power density

With the DB80, Nanotec presents an EC motor which - relative to its design size - exhibits exceptionally high power density. Featuring a rated speed of 3000 rpm and a rated voltage of 48 V, this 8-pin motor is particularly suitable for applications which require a high degree of efficiency; for example in service robotics or automated guided vehicle systems.


The DB80 has a flange size of 80 x 80 mm and is available with Hall sensors or encoder. By standard, it is supplied with a parallel keyway that enables quick and easy connection.

Four lengths cover a performance range from 280 to 940 W. Additional high-performance planetary gear systems can be mounted for high torques. Customer-specific versions with other windings or wave forms are also offered. Soon the DB80 will also be available with integrated electronics under the model name PD6-CB80.

About Nanotec

Nanotec Electronic GmbH & Co. KG has been a reliable partner since 1991 in the implementation of drive solutions based on high performance stepper motors, BLDC motors, linear actuators, and innovative motor controllers.

We have more than 20 years of experience developing of innovative products solutions such as high performance, energy-saving Plug & Drive motors. Nanotec was quick to recognize the trend towards integrated motors and was one of the first manufacturers to market an integrated stepper motor with the Plug & Drive product line.

Through their integrated, powerful motor controller plus encoder, the Plug & Drive motors deliver a performance in closed loop mode far beyond that of the classic stepper motors. Our Plug & Drive motors are highly energy-efficient, compact drives with precise and exact positioning. Advanced software technologies lead to platform independence and enable simple integration of our motors and motor controller systems. A strong focus on research & development guarantees products that will also meet our customers' needs in the future.

Nanotec Electronic GmbH & Co. KG has its company headquarters in Feldkirchen near Munich with subsidiaries in Changzhou, China, and Medford/MA, USA.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
