Used and Surplus Gear Motors

Gear motors are the motors that are fitted with gears that help run these motors at a specific speed. The gears are organized in a series of kinematic chains and they work on the set of rotary parts. A gear helps reduce the speed of motors to lower ones without affecting the performance. Additionally, this gear motor helps mechanically adjust the system power. Are you looking for gear motors for your industrial application? At J&M Industrial, we provide a vast collection of used and surplus gear motors from industry-leading brands. You can browse through the collection displayed on this page to buy used gear motors.

Types of Used Gear Motors

At J&M Industrial, we provide the following types of used gear motors.

  • Brushed Motors: These motors are equipped with brushes made of carbon, and may be driven by AC or DC power. Brushed motors are usually bidirectional motors. They usually have a service life up to 3000 hours.
  • Synchronous Brushless Motors: These motors are brushless and can be operated at a constant speed using a stable power source. Synchronous brushless motors can be bidirectional or single directional.
  • Asynchronous Brushless Motors: Unlike synchronous brushless motors, these motors are single direction motors, which are used in limited applications. These motors are brushless.
  • Stepper DC Brushless Motors: These motors can be positioned with a precision of 75 degrees. As the name suggests, these motors generate incremental motion in response to the current.
  • Brushless DC Motors: These motors can be operated at high speeds and they use a driver.

Why Are Gear Motors Used in Industrial Applications?

Whether in used gear motors or new gear motors, you must know the benefits offered by them. The following pointers will help you understand them better:

  • Environment Friendly: These motors are fitted with gears, which help monitor and manage speeds efficiently, this, in turn, provides benefits in the form of reduced energy costs. It is a well-known fact that industrial electrical motor systems are one of the key contributors of green gas emissions. By effectively managing their speed, the emission of greenhouse gases can be easily reduced.
  • Cost Saving: Speed management also ensures less wear and tear on components, which require fewer replacements than other types of motors. Many gear motors are easy to install and require less maintenance during their lifetime, which further reduces the costs.
  • Quiet Operation: Noise is one of the main concerns for many electronic OEMs. This is where DC gear motors can make a difference. They are quieter than other types of motors.
  • Requires Less Power for Operation: The gear train inside the gearbox function helps in multiplying the torque between the input and the output sides. For instance, if the gearbox ratio is 30:1, it means the output side of the motor is 30 percent powerful than the input side. This torque multiplication combined with speed reduction helps in minimizing the power load requirements to drive the motor.
  • Design Flexibility: One of the major benefits of using gear motors is that they can be designed to meet various requirements such as torque, speed, and so on. The performance of this type of motor depends on the type of gear, its housing, gear lubrication, as well as the mode of integration of gear and motor. All these factors can be easily adjusted to achieve the desired outcome.

Applications of Used Gear Motors

There are several benefits of using new or used gear motors are well-known, they are widely used in various industrial and commercial applications. The following are a few common applications:

  • Food and beverage equipment
  • Industrial equipment
  • Medical equipment
  • Automated doors
  • Off-road motorized equipment
  • Security door systems
  • Vending machines
  • Robotic applications

Benefits of Buying Used and Surplus Gear Motors

There are several benefits of buying used and surplus gear motors over the new ones.

  • Reduced Wait Times: All the used and surplus gear motors that you see here are available in our inventory. So, you can reduce the wait times between the order and delivery. However, if buying new gear motors, these wait times would be more.
  • Quality Products at Reduced Prices: All used gear motors available in our collection are sourced from industry-leading brands and available at almost 1/4th prices than their new counterparts. Thus, you get the opportunity to use quality products at much-reduced prices.
  • Best Choice as a Second Investment: All the gear motors included on this page are tested for their performance, so you can be assured of their quality. Being offered at low prices, you can easily use them as a second investment.
