Why Do We Need Gear Motors?

A gear motor is any motor coupled to a gear train. The gear motor uses AC (alternating current) or DC (direct current) power supply. In most cases, the purpose of matching with the gearbox is to limit the speed of the motor shaft and improve the output torque. Gears actually convert shaft speed to torque at a specific ratio, with minimal efficiency loss. By adding a gearbox of appropriate size and configuration, ideal torque output and speed can be realized.

According to the volume classification, gear motors can be classified into large gear reducer motors, medium gear reducer motors and small gear reducer motors. Many devices use the gear motors to reduce speed, increase torque and change the driving direction.

Large and medium gear motors can be used in packaging machinery, conveyor machinery, food machinery, color box machinery, automatic storage, three-dimensional warehouse, three-dimensional parking lot equipment, textile, chemical and other equipment.

The small gear motors consist of gears and a micro motor, which have the characteristics of high precision, compact size, low noise and smooth running. ETONM can provide micro planetary gear motors belonging to the small gear motor. The micro planetary gear motor can be combined with encoders and controllers to forming micro gear drive systems, and it is mainly used in the areas of smart home, communication technology, medical technology, robots and consumer electronics, so the micro gear motor play an important role in the application areas.
