Rotary equipment is the part of electromechanical devices which is used to sense and perform many applications. Motor paired with rotary equipment and automated machinery provides monitoring of industrial machines and robotics. One such rotary equipment is Gearmotor, that is also called DC or AC electromotor and it is merged with a gear train in a single housing. The purpose of Gearmotor is to reduce the rotational speed of an engine while increasing its torque.
What are Gearmotors
Gearmotors are generally a well-established technology and recently there are many integrated trends that are used in them. They got popularity in the mechanical world due to the rising costs of energy and demand for more efficiency. Gearmotors are used in a variety of applications to present a tremendous opportunity for global energy savings. A Gearmotor in an engine presents high torque at low horsepower or low speed. It uses gears that are assembled as a gearbox to reduce speed and bring more torque.
Gearmotors are used in such applications where a lot of force to move heavy objects is required. Most of the industries use Gearmotors as AC motors and fixed-speed motors. There is also a second version of Gearmotor, namely DC motor, which is primarily used in automotive applications.
Why Gearmotors are Popular
Gearmotors are getting a lot of popularity in several industries. About one-third of motor-driven motion is acquired by the use of gearing. They can run up to 1,000 rpm. Specially AC drive electromotor has more benefits over others.
- Gearmotors multiply torque and reduce speed which finally helps to decrease the overall cost of the operating system. In addition to the efficiency and reliability of gear, motors also offer benefits of the application quickly.
- Efficient use of Gearmotors helps to achieve significant savings, both in energy and component costs. Gear motors are environment and worker health-friendly. They reduce the power consumption and does not require much power for their self-operation.
- Advantages of the Gearmotor can directly be seen when coupled to the motor output shaft. This connection creates a mechanical advantage based on a ratio of the number of gears and a number of teeth on each gear.
