Professional Woodworking Tool

July 6, 2011

This OEM is a leader in Pocket Hole woodworking tools, offering custom automated joinery tools and precision measuring systems.

The Challenge

The customer needed not only motors for its tools but a partner to integrate a range of tool assemblies for their woodworking tools. They needed Groschopp to:

  • Design a gearmotor for inclusion in the Pocket Hole plastic tool housings
  • Locate and qualify vendor for plastic parts
  • Assemble all components of pocket tool motor module
  • Assume responsibility for all quality related issues

The Solution

  • Custom motor parts set
  • Design and manufacture specialized gear assembly
  • Customize armature with hobbed shaft to mate with gear assembly
  • Design custom bearings for gear pinions and armature
  • Qualified vendor for plastic housing and other components
  • Integrated assembly saves time, money and guarantees quality

How to use the Motor Search Tool

Narrow your search by selecting motor type, gearbox, voltage, and phase options for your desired motor.

Select a dominant variable: choose one of the three parameters to narrow your search. The selected variable determines which slider bar you will be able to manually move.

Use the slider corresponding to your dominant variable to further narrow your motor selection. The other sliders will automatically move to show available ranges based on the range of your selected variable.

Results will upload as your search criteria changes. If you have any questions regarding your results or how to use the search tool, you can chat with us using the green tab on the left-hand side of your screen.


Note: Groschopp Universal motors are custom built to fit your application so no additional options are available to narrow the search. Selecting the Universal motor type will prompt a message taking you to the Universal product page.
