What is a gearmotor?
A gearmotor is an electrical motor that has some type of gear system on the output of the motor, the gear system is called a gear reducer or gearbox.
Gearmotors are commonly found when an application needs a lot of force to move heavy objects. They are generally used to reduce speed in a series of gears which creates more torque. Gear motors are designed to produce high torque while maintaining low horsepower, or low speed, motor output.
You might be surprised to find that gearmotors are used in everything from washing machines and garage door openers to hospital beds and cranes.
Gearmotors are available with either an AC or DC motor. AC (alternating current) is the most common, DC (direct current) is generally used in automotive applications for things like adjusting automatic seats and side view mirrors.>
