12mm Micro Spur™ DC Gearmotor

Consider these geared motors for applications in the areas of robotics, industrial actuators (locking mechanism) or to animate static displays. This model is in high demand with our current customer base because of its versatility and availability of design options. Built using a three-pole, ferrite motor, these 12mm geared motors come with an open, straight-cut gearbox with steel gear train as well as sintered bronze bearings. Some of the geared motors have a 65 (or 19mm long) double flat extended shaft from the gear side. Use this component for mounting actuation arms or rollers. For feedback control or actuation, use the shaft that protrudes from the other end of the motor case.

14mm Micro Spur™ DC Gearmotor

These spur geared motors are used to develop applications for miniature industrial actuation as well as robotics and medical instruments. Built using a high-quality brass and steel gear train and a three-pole, 14mm diameter, ferrite motor, our Micro Spur™ geared motors are fully enclosed units that come with an offset shaft and a 1.5mm mounting plate.

Models to look for: 214-101 and 214-102

16mm Micro Spur™ DC Gearmotor

The 16mm Micro Spur™ gear motor is a good choice if you are looking for a higher ratio capacity than the popular 12mm gearmotor models. Built with a ferrite core motor, these 16mm models consist of a 13mm gear head mounted on a 15mm diameter flat type DC gearmotor. Using the standard ISO threaded holes on the front face, the 16mm models can be easily and conveniently mounted.

Models to look for: 215-200

20mm Micro Spur™ DC Gearmotor

These micro geared motors are used for sophisticated automotive and industrial applications. For top performance, 20mm geared motors come equipped with a high-end gearbox and motor combination. They have a centred shaft output with a 1.5mm thick mounting plate. Each of these spur geared motors has been designed and built using steel and brass straight-cut gears. The gear unit is coupled with a strong, three-pole, ferrite motor.

Models to look for: 220-301, 220-302, 220-401
