A gear motor is designed to produce a high torque output while keeping a low speed or low horsepower. For this reason, gear motors are widely used in many material handling applications such as warehousing, logistics, palletizing and parcel shipping where handling heavy loads safely are important.
Specifically, Bauer gear motors offer you the following features and/or benefits:
Bauer engineers came up with technically-advanced solutions that feature energy-efficient motors with optimal gearboxes to provide clients with the lowest possible cost of ownership.
The BF Series Gear Motor is made of heavy-duty steel with state-of-the-art gearbox housing to ensure durability and reliability.
Bauer gear motors can be mounted in any position as the terminal box can be rotated and moved around the motor frame.
The BS Series Gear Motor is designed for minimal spaces but still performs with top quality precision and power.
Since loud noise in a working environment is unhealthy, Bauer engineers developed gear motors that feature a low noise gearing to protect end users from stress, accidents and injuries.
The gear motor’s efficiency is affected by a number of factors especially gearbox loading. It is good to remember that light loading and high ratios tend to produce poor gearbox efficiency. On the other hand, the gearbox will reach its theoretical efficiency with heavy loading and high ratios. Thus, it is less likely to reach the manufacturers' specified efficiency with a lighter load and a higher ratio.
