Stainless steel is among the strongest and most versatile metals known to man. When used in gear motor design, what is produced is a strong, sturdy and durable piece of machinery capable of performing tasks with few hiccups. This is why when investing in this field, choosing a stainless steel gear motor would be the best bet to make.
The following are the reasons why a stainless steel gear motor is beneficial to its user:
- Precision. A stainless steel gear motor is precision designed and custom made. This means the electric motor fits the gear head perfectly without spacing between the gear splines. This means that there being no lost energy in the movement of the gears, the energy used produces the optimum turning of the gears.
- Encasement. A stainless steel gear motor is encased in its own housing. This helps keep any foreign contaminant and moisture from affecting the operation of the gear motor. Also, the encasement allows for sturdier foundation, preventing any loosened parts or misalignment of the gears during operation.
- Lubrication. A stainless steel gear motor allows for efficient use of lubrication. Because of the smoothened surfaces of the gear as well as the motor, friction is decreased dramatically. Thus, lubrication is kept at a minimum. Also contaminants in the lubrication decreases, because the stainless steel surfaces do not produce any foreign elements.
As can be seen, there are a number of benefits a stainless steel gear motor can provide its user. Firstly, the precision design allows for exact measurements aligning all the parts together. The stainless steel gear motor usually has its own housing which helps in keeping the immediate area clean for operation. Finally, lubrication is kept at a minimum, as the surface of a stainless steel gear motor would be smooth, decreasing the demand for lubrication.
