All Gearboxes

October 19, 2015

AC gearmotors can be built with four different types of gearboxes: Planetary, Parallel Shaft, Right Angle and Right Angle Planetary. It’s important to know the specs needed for your application to determine which AC gearmotors will be the best fit. Planetary gearmotors have a higher yield strength than parallel shaft gearmotors in the same size package because […]

AC Motors

August 26, 2015

AC motors (alternating current) are a great choice for applications needing relatively low, consistent speed over a wide range of torque. Groschopp offers two and four pole induction motors with single and three phase inputs making it easy to find the right fit. AC induction motors are a great option for low power and low starting torque applications where […]

Planetary

October 6, 2015

AC Planetary gearmotors have a higher yield strength than AC parallel shaft gearmotors in the same size package because of the in-line configuration of the spur gears in planetary gearmotors. AC Planetary gearmotors drastically increase the torque capabilities of AC motors without much decrease to the efficiency of the motor. AC Planetary gearmotors are suitable for both […]

Parallel Shaft

October 6, 2015

AC Parallel shaft gearmotors are a better choice for continuous duty applications than planetary gearmotors because their gear configurations provide a higher level of efficiency. They provide the highest maximum input speed of Groschopp’s gearbox choices. AC Parallel Shaft gearmotors can reach slightly higher speeds than DC Parallel Shaft gearmotors with little slip. This works well for applications […]

Right Angle

October 6, 2015

AC Right Angle gearmotors are a good fit for intermittent and continuous duty operations in tight spaces due to the reduction achieved using worm gears. Right angle gearmotors are non-back-drivable (they do not move when power is cut from the motor) at ratios of 30:1 and above. They use worm gears to make a 90° turn compared to the spur […]

Right Angle Planetary

October 6, 2015

AC Right angle planetary gearmotors are built using spur and bevel gears, making them much more efficient than right angle worm gearmotors. Right Angle Planetary gearmotors couple the high torque of standard planetary gearboxes with the 90° turn capabilities of right angle gearboxes to create a powerful combination of size and torque suitable for applications that […]

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.
