Submission: Nanotec

For its 25th anniversary, Nanotec is seeking new application concepts for its integrated motors and controllers for an innovation contest.

According to Nanotec, design ideas must incorporate the use of field-oriented control, either with or without an encoder, or the programming software NanoJ. The application itself must be sophisticated, innovative, economical and suitable for large-scale production.

Project ideas must be submitted before or on Feb. 29, 2016. The submitters of the first 25 concepts that meet all of the criteria will be given a starter kit with the required motors and controllers. The contest participants then have time until Oct. 31, 2016 to work on their application before the proposals are evaluated by a jury.

The winners will be announced at the SPS IPC Drives show in Nuremberg, Germany, in November. For first place, 5,000 Euros will be awarded, 2,500 Euros for second place and 1,000 Euros for third place.

The Nanotec Innovation Contest is open to companies and educational institutes – individuals are not included. Proposals must be submitted to [email protected] along with a short description of the application, including relevant technical data and a sketch.
