Used Gear Motors

JM industrial buys and sells used geared motors from leading manufacturers in various specifications. Gear motors 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 reduction motor helps mechanically adjust the system power. Are you looking for used ac or dc geared motors for your industrial application? You can browse through the collection displayed on this page to buy used gear motors. JM Industrial stocks various types of used motors and drives for sale. If you have any questions or want to sell your used gear motor, please contact us.

Understanding the Components and Functions of Gear Motors

Industrial gear motor consist of two primary components: a motor and a gearbox. The motor converts electrical energy into mechanical energy, while the gearbox reduces the motors speed and increases its torque. The gearbox contains two or more gears that mesh with each other, transmitting power from the motor to the output shaft.

Here are the main components and their functions:

  • Motor: The motor is the power source of the gear motor. It converts electrical energy into mechanical energy that drives the gearbox.
  • Gearbox: The gearbox consists of a series of gears and bearings that transmit the motors power to the output shaft. The gears are designed to mesh with each other, transmitting power and torque while reducing the motors speed.
  • Input Shaft: The input shaft connects the motor to the gearbox. When the motor rotates, it spins the input shaft, which turns the gears in the gearbox.
  • Output Shaft: The output shaft is the point where the gearbox transfers power to the driven equipment. The output shafts speed and torque depend on the gear ratio and the motors speed and torque.
  • Bearings: The bearings support the gears and the input and output shafts, allowing them to rotate smoothly and with minimal friction.

Types of Used Gear Motors

At JM Industrial, we provide various types of used gear motors for sale, including low rpm, low speed, right angle, compact, miniature, industrial, and more.

  • Helical Gear Motors: Industrial helical gear motors are designed with helical teeth that are cut at an angle to the gears axis. This design allows for smoother and quieter operation than straight-cut gears. Helical gear motors are often used in applications that require high efficiency and high torque.
  • Inline Gear Motors: This type of gear motors have parallel shafts that are positioned in the same direction. This design allows for a compact and space-saving configuration, making them ideal for applications with limited space.
  • Right Angle Gear Motors: This Industrial used gear motors have shafts that are positioned at a 90-degree angle to each other, allowing for power transmission in tight spaces or when the power source and driven equipment are not in a straight line.
  • Worm Gear Motors: Worm gear motors consist of a worm gear and a worm wheel that mesh at a right angle. This design provides a high reduction ratio and is often used in applications where high torque is required.
  • Bevel Gear Motors: Industrial used bevel gear motors have beveled gears that mesh at an angle other than 90 degrees. They are used to transmit power and motion between shafts that are not in a straight line or parallel to each other.

How to Select the Right Angle Gear Motor for Your Application?

JM Industrial offers a range of used right angle gear motors for sale, with various horsepower options, including 3HP, 30HP, 40HP,75HP, and more. Whether you need a gear motor for a small or large application, JM Industrial has the right solution for you.

  • Torque Requirements: One of the most important considerations when selecting a right angle gear motor is the required torque output. This will depend on the applications load characteristics, operating speed, and duty cycle. Its important to ensure that the selected gear motor can deliver the necessary torque while operating within its rated speed and temperature range.
  • Gear Ratio: Right angle gear motors are designed to provide speed reduction through the use of gearboxes. The gear ratio determines the relationship between the input and output shaft speeds. The right gear ratio will depend on the desired output speed and the motors operating range. A higher gear ratio will provide greater torque multiplication but reduce output speed, while a lower gear ratio will provide less torque multiplication but increase output speed.
  • Mounting Requirements: Right angle gear motors are designed to be mounted in specific orientations. Its important to consider the mounting requirements of the application when selecting a gear motor. This includes the available space, mounting surface, and accessibility for maintenance.
  • Environment: The operating environment can affect the performance and durability of the gear motor. Factors to consider include temperature range, humidity, vibration, and exposure to dust or moisture. Ensure that the selected gear motor is rated for the applications environment.
  • Efficiency: The efficiency of the gear motor can impact the overall performance of the application. Higher efficiency motors will reduce energy consumption and operating costs over time. Consider the efficiency rating of the gear motor when selecting a motor for the application.

Why Are Geared Motors Used in Industrial Applications?

Whether in used small gear motor or new inline gear motor, 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 small gear reduction electric 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 small 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 AC or DC Gear Motors

There are several benefits of using new or used high torque geared 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
