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.

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.

Contract manufacturing

Challenge us - because our specialty is to implement your requirement!

ENGEL manufactures your armatures, cases, rotors and in the near future also stators

In order to increase the vertical range of manufacture and to be more independent of market developments in the future, we have already decided again in 2021 to include anchor production and all associated processes in our program. The production, which has been outsourced for more than 10 years, can now take place in Walluf again thanks to state-of-the-art machines and new acquisitions. We offer contract manufacturing of housings with already equipped magnets, armatures and rotors completely according to your specifications. The production of stators in house is still in the development stage, new projects can already be discussed with our technical department.

Qualified employees and well-rehearsed work processes make ENGEL a good name in contract manufacturing. As a specialist for all types of windings, we offer complete solutions with high quality and long service life from the very first piece.

The current machines offer the following possibilities

Anchor diameter: 21 – 80 mm
Sheet bundle length: 15 – 75 mm
Wavelength max.: 350 mm
Wave diameter: 4 – 25 mm
Wire thickness: 0,2 – 1,2 mm

Different winding types (including straight or slanted winding)

GNM motor with open casing
Gear Box GP48

Gearbox construction

A basic component of our daily work with electric motors is gearbox production. No matter whether you want to purchase a motor with gearbox or the gearbox individually, ENGEL offers you the right solution for every requirement. According to your drawing, the design department will create a CAD model for approval. If no drawing is available, you are welcome to send us the parts to be replaced. We will carry out a measurement and prepare a quotation on the basis of this.

Plastic Injection Molding

Precise, Fast & Flexible

Another area of contract manufacturing is the precise and fast production of injection molded plastic elements. For this purpose, we have state-of-the-art machines (injection moulding machines as well as peripheral equipment) from well-known manufacturers. The molded parts will be used at ENGEL in the future, among other things, in the field of stators. The other areas of application are as diverse as the industries for which these injection moulded parts are required.

The raw material is converted directly into the moulded part in just one process step. No time-consuming reworking is necessary due to the precision of our machines. Since the production process is largely automatic, planning can be carried out with a minimum of manpower. In our in-house test laboratory, the finished products are thoroughly tested by our qualified personnel.

Injection Molding
The current machines offer the following possibilities

Shot weight up to 359 Gramm
Shot volume up to 392 cm³
Closing force: 10 – 2200 kN

Processing of all common thermoplastics (also glass fiber reinforced), production of Two-component molded parts possible, special materials on request.

Our Quality Manangement

We set a high value on the quality of our products


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.


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.

AEO - Authorised Economic Operator

ENGEL ElektroMotoren AG is an authorized economic operator (AEO)

Increasing globalization and the changed international security situation have prompted the World Customs Organization (WCO) to create a worldwide framework for modern effective risk management in customs administrations with a "Framework of Standard to Secure and Facilitate Global Trade" (SAFE). At the European level, the security aspects of the SAFE were implemented at the time through security amendments to the Customs Code and the Customs Code Implementing Regulation. Following the repeal of the Customs Code and the Customs Code Implementing Regulation on April 30, 2016, the provisions of the Union Customs Code (UCC), the Implementing Regulation (IA) and the Delegated Regulation (DA) now apply. The introduction of the Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) represents an essential element of the EU security concept. We have fulfilled all requirements for this and the authorization is official since 18.07.2023. AEO Logo
