Industrial or commercial machines that are driven by motors are designed to operate at specific speeds. In other cases, you might want to reduce or increase the torque of the machines. Gearmotors are electrical motors designed with simple gearboxes integrated into their motors. The main goal of the gearmotors is to amplify the torque of the motor. Take the example of a gearmotor that is rated 10:1. This means that the motor makes ten rotations to generate one axle rotation. Therefore, the torque generated is amplified tenfold. Gearmotors fall into two main categories; AC gearmotors and DC Gearmotors
. AC gearmotors are integrated into AC motors
. But, DC gearmotors work with DC motors
that are powered by batteries or actuators. To select the right model of gearmotors, it is important to understand the targeted torque output to optimize your facility operations. Visit our page to see the full list of gearmotors and pick the ideal option for your facility.
