Gear motors are a widely used type of reduction drive equipment, whose main transmission structure is assembled by a driving motor (micro motor) and a planetary gearhead (reducer).   

※ According to the drive structure and application of the gear motor, they are classified as large gear motors, small gear motors, gear motors, planetary gear motors, DC gear motors, stepper gear motors, coreless gear motors, worm gear motors, and robotic gear motors. The following is a detailed introduction to the commonly used industries, equipment, and products of gear motors.

Large gear motors have large specifications, high power, large reduction range, and high torque are widely used in metallurgy, non-ferrous metals, coal, building materials, ships, water conservancy, electric power, construction machinery, and petrochemical industries.   

Small gear motors have small specifications, low-noise, high transmission accuracy, a wide reduction range, and high torque. They are widely used in fields including smart car transmission, electronic product transmission, medical equipment, intelligent robots, communication equipment, industrial automation equipment, smart homes, personal care tools.


Gear motors are widely used in industries including electric machinery, construction machinery, metallurgical machinery, cement machinery, environmental protection machinery, electronic appliances, road machinery, water conservancy machinery, chemical machinery, mining machinery, transport machinery, building material machinery, rubber machinery, and petroleum machinery.   

Planetary gear motors are compact, have high transmission efficiency, low-noise, power distribution, and multi-tooth meshing. They are suitable for lifting and transportation, construction machinery, metallurgy, mining, petrochemical industry, construction machinery, light industry textile, medical applications, instruments and meters, automobile, ship, bullet trains, and aerospace industry sectors. 

DC gear motors are widely used in electronic and digital products, printers, aircraft, robots, logistics equipment, electronic locks, photographic cradle head, and precision instruments.  

Stepper gear motors are widely used in industrial automation production equipment, industrial robots, mechanical arms, office equipment, video conferencing equipment, electric curtain, intelligent sofa, and smart kitchens and toilets. 

Robot gear motors are widely used in intelligent robots, service robots, medical robots, outdoor adventure robots, crawling robots, industrial robots, voice communication interactive robots, and education robots.
