Energy efficiency is a core principle at the both ends of utility products; an important factor for manufacturers and users. Our electric motors are designed with high standards regarding the reduction of energy usage, and increased control on the speed and rotational force.
Before we dive into the different types of gearmotors, let's start with a brief overview of what gearmotors are and how they work. Gearmotors are an essential component in many industrial applications.
The motion is stable, the ability to resist shock and vibration is strong because several planetary wheels with the same structure are used and distributed evenly around the central wheel, which can balance the forces of the planetary wheel and the rotating arm.
The first port of call when choosing a motor is to understand what torque and speed you require. On top of this you need to think about basic functional parameters such as the physical size of the motor – whether it be the motor frame/body or the shaft size or the mounting holes.
For industrial squirrel cage induction motors are used mostly for the motor and drive systems applications. Synchronous motors are very rarely used below 40kW output because of the higher cost compared to induction motors.
Three-phase motors (also annotated numerically as 3-phase motors) are widely used in industry and have become the workhorse of many mechanical and electromechanical systems because of their relative simplicity, proven reliability, and long service life.
