Gear Motors

A gear motor is defined as an enclosed gear drive in combination with an electric motor of 1/8 HP or larger, the frame of one supporting the other, with the motor shaft common or directly coupled to the input shaft and parallel, concentric, or at a right angle to the output shaft. The output shaft may be either solid or hollow. Gearmotors allow for the reduction of drive components and allow for speed reduction and increased torque in a smaller package. A gearmotor is utilized to replace a stand alone motor coupled to a gear reducer in a power transmission drive. Gearmotors are becoming increasingly popular as they become more standardized. They allow for more streamlined drive design as opposed to selecting the proper combination of motor and reducer. With a gearmotor, the manufacturer has already completed the design capabilities for the potential end user.

There are numerous brands, types and styles of gearmotors available. Please contact Bearing Service to select or replace the right gearmotor for your application.
