For applications where variable speeds are necessary, typically an AC engine with an Inverter or brush motors are used. Brushless DC motors are a sophisticated option due to their wide speed range, low heat and maintenance-free procedure. Center-drive gear motor Stepper Motors offer high torque and smooth low speed operation.
Speed is typically controlled by manual operation on the driver or by an external switch, or with an exterior 0~10 VDC. Speed control systems typically make use of gearheads to increase result torque. Gear types range from spur, worm or helical / hypoid depending on torque needs and budgets.
Mounting configurations vary to depending on space constraints or style of the application.
The drives are powerful and durable and feature a concise and lightweight design.
The compact design is made possible through the combination of a spur/worm gear drive with motors optimized for performance. That is attained through the constant application of aluminium die casting technology, which guarantees a high degree of rigidity for the gear and motor housing simultaneously.
Each drive is produced and tested particularly for each order and customer. A sophisticated modular system allows for an excellent diversity of types and a optimum degree of customization to client requirements.
In both rotation directions, described end positions are secured by two position limit switches. This uncomplicated option does not just simplify the cabling, but also makes it possible to configure the finish positions quickly and easily. The high shut-off precision of the limit switches ensures safe operation moving forwards and backwards.
A gearmotor delivers high torque at low horsepower or low quickness. The speed specs for these motors are regular speed and stall-quickness torque. These motors use gears, typically assembled as a gearbox, to reduce speed, making more torque obtainable. Gearmotors ‘re normally utilized in applications that require a whole lot of force to move heavy objects.

More often than not, most industrial gearmotors use ac motors, typically fixed-speed motors. Nevertheless, dc motors may also be utilized as gearmotors … a lot of which are used in automotive applications.
Gearmotors have numerous advantages over other types of motor/gear combinations. Perhaps most importantly, can simplify design and implementation through the elimination of the stage of separately creating and integrating the motors with the gears, therefore reducing engineering costs.
Another benefit of gearmotors is definitely that having the right combination of electric motor and gearing can prolong design life and invite for optimum power management and use.

Such problems are normal when a separate motor and gear reducer are connected together and lead to more engineering time and cost and also the potential for misalignment leading to bearing failure and ultimately reduced useful life.
Advances in gearmotor technology include the utilization of new specialty materials, coatings and bearings, and also improved gear tooth styles that are optimized for noise reduction, increase in strength and improved life, all of which allows for improved efficiency in smaller deals. More after the jump.
Conceptually, motors and gearboxes could be blended and matched as had a need to greatest fit the application form, but in the end, the complete gearmotor may be the driving factor. There are a number of motors and gearbox types which can be mixed; for example, a right angle wormgear, planetary and parallel shaft gearbox could be combined with long lasting magnet dc, ac induction, or brushless dc motors.
