The DC Gearmotor, consisting of a DC electric motor and a gearbox, is at the heart of several electrical and electronic applications. Precision Microdrives have been designing and developing such high quality mini DC gearmotors in an easy-to-mount package for a range of products and equipment. Our miniature gear motor work smoothly and efficiently, supporting these electrical and electronic applications. These geared motors have reduction gear trains capable of providing high torque at relatively low shaft speed or revolutions per minute (RPM).  Precision Microdrives DC geared motors reduce the complexity and cost of designing and constructing applications such as industrial equipment, actuators, medical tools, and robotics.

Precision Microdrives has engineered a range of planetary and spur gearmotors (also known as mini-geared motors and micro-geared motors) suitable for many future and existing applications. The main characteristics of these gearmotors are miniature form factors, offering significant strength, torque, and other technical capabilities that these applications require. Their linear performance characteristics make them suitable for many applications requiring a controlled performance. 

Whether you are looking for automotive, medical, or domestic applications, DC Gearmotors from Precision Microdrives not only offer the variable speed and torque control required in each of these applications. They also possess quality characteristics of reliability, ruggedness, and compactness. The operations performed by Precision Microdrives geared motors appear simple and effortless. However, they are highly sophisticated devices, and some units are encapsulated in housings to prevent exposure to moisture and dust. Precision Microdrives is the leading supplier of sub Ø60 mm DC Gearmotors in the industry.

Precision Microdrives Gear Motor Ranges

We stock extensive ranges of DC Reduction gear motors. These are based around one range of planetary DC gear motors, two ranges of spur DC reduction gear motors (micro and miniature). Our motors are used in a number of markets, particularly automotive, medical and instrumentation.

Our DC geared motor products are split into 3 ranges:

  • Nano Planetary™ Gear DC Motors
  • Nano Planetary™
  • The world's smallest range of reduction gear motors for portable and miniaturised equipment

  • Micro Spur™ Gear DC Motors
  • Micro Spur™
  • Precision metal spur-geared DC motors for small loads with a wide range of configurations

  • Miniature Spur™ DC Gear Motors
  • Miniature Spur™
  • Our Largest DC reduction gear motors for larger loads, based on heavy-duty spur gearboxes

Our gearmotors are used in a number of different applications

  • Robotic arms use several miniature gearmotors
  • Positioning Actuators
  • Typically low load, high ratio gear motors to slowly change position of machine components

  • Gearmotor automotive example
  • Automotive Applications
  • As automation in vehicles increases, gearmotors are used to enable a range of high-end features

  • Production lines use a variety of actuators
  • Industrial and Consumer Actuators
  • Gear motors are used to open and close objects, or slowly move position. Industrial machines and consumer applications can benefit from slow moving gearmotors

  • Gear motors can be used to drive belts
  • Power and Drive Applications
  • Drive mechanisms such as mixers and production lines require medium / high torques and high operating lifetimes
