Low cost DC gearmotors for OEM applications are available from Source Engineering, Inc. These 12 mm to 50 mm DC gearmotors are available with cut steel gears for high strength applications, plastic gears for low noise requirements, and low cost, powered metal. Available in ratios from 5:1 up to 3000:1, these low cost DC Brush type gearmotors are appropriate for pick-and-place, medical testing equipment, robotics, toys and games, valve and door actuation, ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) fin and steering actuators, appliances, manufacturing, security applications, and assembly operations. The inline and offset output shafts of the gearmotors can be custom machined with cross holes, splines, keyways, and flats, or end drilled and tapped. Output torque of the gearmotors range from 41 oz-in. up to 500 oz-in. Typically peak torque of these gearmotors is 3 times rated torque. OEMs can select from 3.0V to 24V DC motors with no-load speeds to 6,000 rpm. Integral, incremental two-channel encoders with quadrature outputs and an optional index channel are available.
