Long life and low maintenance were what a quality-conscious provider of insulation products needed in a gearmotor to power a commercial grade insulation blower. Dust and other environmental contaminants were highly likely to get into the motor and could potentially cause premature motor failure. An AC gearmotor was the best choice. (read more)
The Permanent Magnet DC (PMDC) is a good fit for applications that require a high starting toque to reliably lift heavy loads. In intermittent applications, even with a PMDC's brush design, the motor can be expected to have a 2000+ hour life. Through proprietary design techniques, Groschopp PMDC motor designs have been customized for extremely quiet operation. (read more)
The universal motor, an often maligned old workhorse, is actually a particularly adaptable motor, and still proves very useful in many applications. When an application calls for high starting torque, power, and speed - all combined in a small, lightweight package - the Universal Motor (UM) often emerges as the clear choice. (read more)
The customer required a high performance, unique design gearmotor assembly for its heavy automotive (bus) shifter. Their vision was a motor with a "back up" winding inside the armature that could be engaged in the event of a primary winding failure. (read more)
There are times when a completely custom motor over the life and scale of a project will have an overall lower production cost with a relatively short payback time because you are paying specifically for the motor you need. This weighing of a Customized Standard Design versus the Blank Sheet Custom Design. (read more)
This dual output Permanent Magnet DC (PMDC) Planetary Gearmotor drives two hinged arms on an automated surgical table used in orthopedic surgery. It was designed so that the two hinged arms would be positionally aligned, and their movement synchronized at all times. It was designed to eliminate the need for link chains or belts - and provide a positive mechanical actuation interface. (read more)
IP66 Fractional HP Motors and Gearmotors for OEMs provide reliable operation and long life in applications where dust and/or moisture intrusion are present. Product line includes Permanant Magnet DC, Brushless DC and AC Induction motors from 0.05 HP to 1.0 HP. Motors can be coupled with Right Angle, Parallel Shaft or Planetary Reducers to create an integrated, IP66-rated gearmotor solution. (read more)
MotorMatch™ is an easy to use, web-based tool that simplifies fractional horsepower motor and gearmotor selection. Based on Groschopp's time-saving MOTORTEC™ STP Calculator, two of three performance parameters, Speed, Torque and/or Power can be entered, along with motor type, gearbox type and voltage to search thousands of existing product designs.
