Blueprint of a GNM Series motor

GNM - Brushed DC-Motors

The GNM series stands for our DC servo motors with a permanent magnetic field. As voltage variants for the standard version we offer 12V, 24V and 42V. The nominal torque ranges in continuous operation S1 reach up to 1.6 Nm without gear box. Depending on the application, the motors can be designed with protection class IP21, IP41 or IP54. This series is particularly service-friendly due to carbon brush windows.

GNM - Brushed DC-Gearmotors

In order to individually adapt the output torques and speeds, selected spur gear units as well as planetary gear units for coaxial applications or worm gear units for a cost-optimizing power deflection by 90° are available.

Blueprint of a VGM Series motor with gearbox

VGM - Brushed DC-motors / Gearmotors Protection class IP65

With the VGM series, DC motors with IP65 protection are available. These models are characterized by a closed design - without carbon brush windows. The various sizes have the same windings (voltage, speed, torque) as our GNM series.

Blueprint of a HSM Series motor with gearbox

HSM - Brushless DC-Motors / Gearmotors

HSM series: An internal rotor with Hall sensor technology. The special features of this series are its high dynamics, excellent controllability and long service life. The motors are maintenance-free as commutation is electronic. A wide range of planetary gearheads in various designs are available for you. Further modifications are possible on request, including various worm gear units.

New Series: TQM - Brushless DC Motors

Particularly suitable in the field of e-mobility: an external rotor as wheel hub motor. This series will be added to our standard portfolio in the near future. Please contact us for more information.

Coming Soon: ISM - Brushless DC Motors

A BLDC-motor as internal rotor with already integrated control electronics. If you are interested please contact us. We are in constant development to offer you the latest technology.

Blueprint of a Drive Controller

Drive controller

In order to achieve dynamic speed or torque control, various drive controllers are available. With their digital inputs and outputs, they increase the flexibility and possible uses in many applications. Furthermore, various fieldbus systems can also be used. In scripts a higher-level functionality can be programmed, which is normally taken over by a higher-level controller. In many cases, the overall system costs can be significantly reduced due to the flexible use of drive controllers.

Our Company History

  • Old company logo from 1923

    1923 - Year of foundation

    On April 1, 1923, the engineer Erich Engel founded a repair workshop for small electrical appliances in Wiesbaden, Dotzheimer Straße 105. In the same year his brother Fred joined the newly founded company "Ing. Erich und Fred Engel Elektrotechnische Fabrik" after completing his engineering studies. From then on the company successfully produced transformers and electric motors.

  • Bird's eye view of the company building in the Dotzheimer Straße

    1938 - Expansion through relocation

    In 1938 the company moves to a larger factory site at Dotzheimer Straße 147 in Wiesbaden.

  • Bird's eye view of the company building in Schierstein

    1962 - Move to Wiesbaden Schierstein

    The ENGEL-Group's great success demanded further space after a few years. The new plant, built on the so-called grünen Wiese (greenfield site) in Wiesbaden-Schierstein, became the new company headquarters in 1962.

  • Photo of an engineer at his desk

    1965 - New management

    In 1965, Fred Engel, son of the company founder of the same name, took over the management of the ENGEL GmbH, which now has more than 400 employees.

    1980s - If you want to survive on the market, you have to be progressive.

    With meanwhile 60 years tradition, the ENGEL GmbH continues to develop with the help of most modern technology. The ENGEL GmbH is one of the first companies in Wiesbaden to work with advanced computer technology. The turning department also expands and acquires one of the first robot-controlled cutting production systems available on the market. Catalog from 1983

  • A robot arm that was highly modern at the time

    1987 - New enterprises

    On 19.02.1987 the turning department becomes an independent enterprise with 25 coworkers, with seat in Walluf, Germany (ENGEL Präzisions-Drehteile GmbH). Additionally in the same year the new ENGEL Getriebebau GmbH is founded.

  • The new ENGEL building in Walluf

    1994 to 1996 - Relocation to Walluf

    On 1st April 1994 the newly founded ENGEL ElektroMotoren GmbH takes over the production of DC motors from ENGEL GmbH. Two years later the company moves into modern production facilities at the new location "Am Klingenweg 7" in Walluf.

  • Building Am Klingenweg 9 in Walluf

    2001 to 2010 - Reorganization

    Between 2001 and 2010, the newly founded ENGEL Elektroantriebe GmbH takes over the sales organisation for the production companies ENGEL ElektroMotoren GmbH and ESA Elektromotoren GmbH.

  • Several anchors with winding

    2011 - Separation

    From January 2011, the newly founded production companies have again taken over the administrative departments themselves and are now operating under their own names:
    ENGEL ElektroMotoren GmbH
    ENGEL Elektroantriebe GmbH

  • The roof of the ENGEL building in Walluf

    2018 - Change of the legal form

    ENGEL ElektroMotoren GmbH changes its legal form to an AG. The goals of reacting faster and more effectively to changes in the market and individual customer requirements can now be pursued even more efficiently!

  • And
    the story
    goes on!

Our Quality Manangement

We set a high value on the quality of our products

Supervision

With the highest precision and the most modern technology, all our components are checked for the smallest tolerances. If a component does not meet the requirements, it is sorted out.

Durability

It is not without reason that we regularly receive requests for the replacement of motors or transmissions that have often been in operation for well over 30 years.

Measuring the 3D coordinates of gearboxes

All gear components are tested to the smallest tolerances using 3D coordinate measuring technology, here with the aid of a Mitutoyo Coordinate Measuring Machine. All components are inserted into the machine by hand and then automatically checked by the machine.

Mitutoyo Coordinate Measuring Machine

Optical measurement of shafts

Optical measurement of shafts - shown here with a JENOPTIK shaft measuring machine. Each shaft is clamped into the testing machine by hand and then checked for tolerances with an optical sensor. If tolerances are exceeded, the shaft is rejected.

JENOPTIK Wave Testing Machine

Inspection of chamfers and radii

With the help of a measuring profile projector from Mitutoyo and the trained human eye, chamfers and radii of each individual motor are optically measured. Due to the many years' experience of our employees, minor deviations are directly detected.
