Traceability is a critical part of our manufacturing process. We are able to trace the adherence to standards along an unbroken chain of measurements. We use dedicated gauges and gauge tracking to insure that our products meet or exceed agreed upon standards. We also have the capability for tracing products along the production/distribution chain on a series number basis.


We have special facilities to test products for a wide range of physical parameters such as:

  • Motor horsepower, speed and torque
  • Motor and gearbox thermal
  • Gearbox yield strength
  • Gear reducer efficiency
  • Gear motor life
  • Sound analysis
  • Heat/Cold
  • Liquids
  • Corrosives
  • Dust
  • Heavy and overhung loads
  • Shock and vibration
  • Extreme duty cycles

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.
