Gear motors provide high torque at relatively low shaft speeds. AC gear motors typically power lifts, conveyor belts, jacks, and robots. DC gear motors are often used in automotive applications, such as power winches, windshield wipers, power seats, and power windows.
AC parallel-shaft helical gear motors are typically used in conveyor belt systems and materials processing applications. They typically feature foot-mounted, flange-mounted, and shaft-mounted gear motors. Parallel-shaft AC gear motors feature induction-hardened helical and spur gears for extreme strength. They have a ball and needle bearing construction for improved torque capability.
Parallel-shaft DC gear motors feature a permanent magnet design which provides exceptional starting torque, adjustable speed, and predictable operation. They posess induction-hardened helical and spur gears for extreme strength, and ball and needle bearing construction for improved torque capability.
Helical-worm gear units with helical/helical-worm combinations are more efficient than standard helical-worm gear units. Due to their outstanding efficiency, these drives can be used in all industrial sectors. They can also be custom-tailored to your individual torque and speed requirements. The reduction ratios afforded by these helical-worm gear motors and their low noise levels make these gear motors a cost-effective solution for many applications.
