New Gearmotor Selection and Application Guide

We are celebrating our 115th Anniversary this month, and to celebrate this major milestone, our team developed a new Gearmotor Selection and Application Guide to share our many years of design and application engineering expertise with you. With millions of Bodine AC, PMDC and BLDC fractional horsepower (FHP) gearmotors, motors and speed controls in operation worldwide, we have seen thousands of applications, design challenges, and innovative new machine designs.

The goal of this guide is to make sure that your design, your gearmotor selection, and your overall motor application performs to specification, and most importantly, to your and your customers’ expectations. After all, we are here to help you make your products and your business a success!

Some of the topics covered in this new PDF download are:

  • Gearmotor Mounting Orientation
  • Impact of Lubricant on Gearhead Life
  • Duty Cycle Considerations
  • Gearhead Efficiency and Noise
  • Gearhead Life & Brush Life
  • Ambient Temperature

This guide also provides a brief overview of the features and benefits of our over 1,300 standard/stock Fractional HP gearmotor catalog options:

We are concluding our Gearmotor Selection Guide with a few real-life application examples, and how we helped our customers to solve various design challenges:

  • Automated Bag Sealer Equipment
  • Medical Equipment Manufacturing
  • AGV (Automated Guided Vehicles / Warehouse Automation)
  • Conveyor Equipment

If your application requires a custom design solution, we have experienced application and design engineers ready to assist you with your design and application questions. Call us today, or drop us a line. We would love to hear from you.
