From wipers to hospital beds, servo mechanisms to packaging equipment, paint mixers to juice dispensers, gear motors are used to power a significant number of machines and applications.

What Is a Gear Motor?

Simply put, a gear motor is any electric motor coupled with a gear train. Gear motors use either AC (Alternating Current) or DC (Direct Current) power. In most cases, the addition of a gear box is intended to limit the speed of the motor’s shaft, and increase the motor’s ability to output torque.

Gears actually transform shaft speed into torque at specific ratios, with minimum efficiency losses, making it possible to create the ideal torque output and speed by adding the appropriately sized and configured gear box.

What Applications DO NOT Use Gear Motors?

Due to the flexibility and widespread use of electric gear motors, it is actually easier to explore applications that DO NOT use them. Any application that requires high shaft speed will not benefit from the use of a gear motor. This includes fans, pumps and engine starters. In these cases, the speed of the motor’s shaft rotation is the most important factor.
