The electric shaver (also known as the dry razor, electric razor, or simply shaver) is a device with a rotating or oscillating blade. The electric shaver usually does not require the use of shaving cream, soap, or water, which is very convenient. Nowadays, gear motor used in electric shaver is commonly seen as it helps to better perform the functions of each electric shaver.
Growing Popularity of the Electric Shaver
According to Razor Market Analysis Report (2019-2025), the global electric shaver market size was valued at USD 10.2 billion in 2018 and is anticipated to exhibit a CAGR of 3.5% from 2019 to 2025. The market is fueled by several factors, predominantly by growing focus on men’s grooming and rising awareness among consumers related to personal hygiene. With this trend, men have begun spending more time and money in switching up their styles. Although a big increase in men’s spending on grooming products has occurred, the grooming industry expects another rise within the next few years.
Electric shavers save time, which is something that many busy fathers and husbands want. Taking a long time to shave takes time away from having breakfast with family, or having coffee with a partner. When having less time in the morning to get ready for work, nobody wants to spend more time shaving, so time is a major factor and this is where electric shavers shine. With an electric shaver, it is possible to shave quickly and get out the door without having to think about it too much. The electric options are better for busier men who don’t have the time to do a slow and deliberate shave each morning. But all these should benefit from a high-performance razor motor with gears.
Electric Shaver Upgrading by ZHAOWEI
The electric shaver is equipped with a single electric small DC motor. The outer cutters are rotationally driven by the motor while the inner cutters are installed in combination with the outer cutters and also rotationally driven by the motor. The electric shaver is provided with a speed reduction mechanism constructed from a planetary gear assembly installed between a motor shaft gear attached to an output shaft of the electric motor and gears installed on the outer cutters and wherein the speed reduction mechanism comprises:
As for most of the planetary gear assemblies, each consists of an internal sun gear, a plurality of planet gears which are rotatably provided on a carrier and engage with the internal sun gear and an external sun gear which is disposed in a center of the plurality of planet gears so as to engage with each planet gear. The planetary gear assemblies are provided in multiple stages and the internal sun gear is formed in a single continuous cylindrical body so as to be commonly used with the planet gears. One of the planetary gear assemblies is meshed with the external sun gear of another adjacent planetary gear assembly at a position of the center of rotation of the carrier of the adjacent planetary gear assembly.
ZHAOWEI enables better performance of electric shaver motors with gears in the following aspects. The motor will operate smoothly with lower noise while the gears will come with increased torque transmission, thus driving the electric shavers to work at the ideal speed. Besides, planetary gearhead leads to the stability of rotating angular, improving the precision and reliability of the movement. Also, enhanced efficiency can be offered thanks to its compact design and minimized internal layout losses during their work. Due to its torsional rigidity and better rolling, the bearings help to reduce the losses that would occur by rubbing the shaft on the box directly. That is to say, smoother operation contributes to longer service life.
Electric shavers are gaining traction in the men’s grooming industry and seem to be where the future of this business is heading as well. Industries should seize such a great opportunity. The success of this must start from choosing the right razor motor to empower the products. The solution mentioned above is developed according to the specific needs of customers and ZHAOWEI also provides customizable services according to different requirements.
