A gear motor is a motor coupled with gear trains. The gear motor generally uses AC (alternating current) or DC (direct current) power supply. In most cases, the purpose of matching with the gearbox is to limit the speed of the motor shaft and improve the output torque. Gears actually convert shaft speed to torque at a specific ratio, with minimal efficiency loss. By adding a gearbox of appropriate size and configuration, ideal torque output and speed can be realized.
According to the volume, gear motors can be classified into large gear reducer motors, medium gear reducer motors, and small gear reducer motors. Many devices use the gear motors to reduce speed, increase torque, and change the rotation direction.
Large and medium gear motors can be used in packaging machinery, conveyor machinery, food machinery, color box machinery, automatic storage, three-dimensional warehouse, three-dimensional parking lot equipment, textile, chemical, and other equipment.
The small gear motor consists of gears and a micro motor, which has the characteristics of high precision, compact size, low noise, and smooth operation. ZHAOWEI can provide micro planetary gear motors, which are small gear motors. The micro planetary gear motor can be combined with encoders and controllers to form micro gear drive systems. It is mainly used in the areas of smart home, communication technology, medical technology, robots, and consumer electronics. The micro gear motor plays an important role in these areas.
