Being a transmission device that is widely used, a gear motor mainly consists of the drive motor and the reducer. Gear motors include large-scale gear motor, mini gear motor, planetary gear motor, DC gear motor, stepper motor, coreless motor, worm gear motor, brushed gear motor, brushless gear motor and so on. Now let me introduce various applications of some kinds of gear motors.
A large-scale gear motor has the characteristics of large size, high power, large deceleration range and high torque. It is widely used in industries like metallurgy, coal, construction material, shipping, water conservancy, electricity, construction machinery and petrochemical.
Characterized by small size, low noise, high transmission precision, large deceleration range and high torque, a mini gear motor is mainly used in intelligent automobile, consumer electronics, medical technology, intelligent robots, communication equipment, medical electronics, automatic industry device, smart home and so on.
Gear motors for the robots are used in a variety of applications. Among them, those that adopt planetary gearheads are called planetary gear motors. A planetary gear motor shares the torsional load over several planet gears, so it works well when higher torque is required. Besides, the gear motor can adopt AC or DC as the current source. If it adopts direct current, it is called DC gear motor, which is widely used in electronic products, printer, aircraft, robots, logistics equipment, smart lock, precision instrument, etc.
Since stepper gear motors and other control motors are designed to allow accurate positioning, the gearheads used for these motors must provide the same level of accuracy. Stepper gear motor is widely applied in tripod head for camera, automotive gauge, dispensing valve motor, robotic arm, electric curtain, smart sofa, etc.
There may be similarities and differences between different types of gear motors. For example, the mini gear motor that adopts planetary gearheads can be called mini planetary gear motor. In any case, you should choose the most suitable gear motor according to your application requirements.
