Features and Benefits of Hypoid Gearmotors

Features and Benefits of Hypoid Gearmotors

Right-angle gearmotors with hypoid gearsets have several advantages when compared with standard worm-and-pinon right-angle gearmotors. Hypoid gearmotors are more efficient, produce less heat, provide higher torque, and are usually smaller than equivalent gearmotors with worm-and-pinion reducers.

Safe Operating Area: AC Inverter Duty Gearmotors

Safe Operating Area: AC Inverter Duty Gearmotors

We define SOA Torque as the maximum torque at which the motor still operates within Class F thermal limits, or as the maximum torque of a gearmotor when it is gear-limited. Continuous duty operation must be limited to the area below the SOA or gear-limited torque curves. The SOA speed of our inverter-duty non-synchronous AC 3-phase motors and gearmotors is...

Introduction to Planetary Gearmotors

Introduction to Planetary Gearmotors

Engineering Tips

Planetary gearheads are typically comprised of a sun gear, a ring gear, and a planet carrier assembly with three to five planet gears per stage. Planetary gear trains are popular in applications where more torque is required from a smaller gearmotor package.

What is a Synchronous AC Motor?

What is a Synchronous AC Motor?

Engineering Tips

The difference between the speed of the rotating magnetic field of an induction motor (which is always synchronous) and the speed of the rotor is known as "slip". When the rotor design enables it to "lock into step" with the field, the slip is reduced to...
