What are DC Motors Usually Gear Motors

Many battery-operated devices rely on DC motors for power. Because of their high shaft speeds—typically 1500-6000 RPM under load—DC motors are commonly paired with a gearbox. Without the gearbox, the shaft speed of DC motors often exceeds the requirements of most applications. Since many applications require a controllable shaft speed output, many DC motors are …

Motor Mouth: Hypoid Gear Motors: Form, Fit, Function

Hypoid gearing is a specialized version of spiral bevel gearing. Like spiral bevel gears, they operate at right angles. Unlike spiral bevel gears, the pinion’s rotating axis is off center from the gear’s rotating axis. This allows the pinion to be larger, providing high strength and allowing for higher reduction ratios in each stage. AC …
