What Are Gear Motors?

Simply put, a gear motor is an electric motor coupled with a gearbox. In most cases, the addition of a gearbox is intended to limit the speed of the motor’s shaft and increase the motor’s output torque. Gears transform shaft speed and torque at specific ratios, with minimum efficiency losses, which makes it possible to...

Why 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...
