Industrial and Consumer Actuators with DC Gearmotors

Industrial and Consumer Actuators with DC Gearmotors

Precision Microdrives offers a variety of purpose-built DC gearmotors, an essential component in today’s industrial and consumer actuators. With Precision Microdrives DC gearmotors, actuator operations can appear simple and effortless. However, they are highly sophisticated devices. Consumer actuators are used in CD/DVD drives, automobile windows and other devices, while industrial counterparts are used in mixer/stirrer, drive belts, production line and chute control or HVAC applications.

DC gearmotors, whether small gearmotors, mini gearmotors and micro gearmotors, are available to meet the functional and performance requirements in a variety of products and equipment. Geared motors from Precision Microdrives operate actuators smoothly, efficiently and with minimal power: opening, closing, lifting or positioning components, such as lids or doors. Whether using planetary or spur gearmotors, our DC gearmotors and geared actuators impact both consumers and industrial users - from opening and closing DVD/Blu-ray drives to automobile windows or driving factory production lines to power sensitive scientific and medical equipment. Micro and mini gearmotors and geared actuators are also used in areas unsuitable for human exposure, for example, driving and positioning remote cameras in hostile environments.

Operations performed by actuators, are typically short-lived and must overcome sharp load changes as a result of acceleration or stopping. Our small gearmotors provide medium to high torques to drive equipment mechanisms at controlled speeds during continuous or periodic loading throughout its operation. In addition, geared motors from Precision Microdrives provide long operational life by preventing any overdrive while under load. For example, Micro Spur™ DC Gearmotors with compact offset-shafts, are used for automated actuation in vending machines and loaded arms. Their adaptable housing permits a range of gear ratios options and output configurations, as well as feedback mounting. The unit features steel and brass gears for reliable transmission of high torques. DC gearmotors are extremely efficient in driving loads repeatedly and reliably under a wide range of operating temperatures and environmental conditions within a protective housing that prevents exposure to moisture and dirt.
