What is a gearbox?
Essentially, a gearbox enables an electric motor to run at its maximum efficiently whilst changing its output speed characteristics to meet the precise specification of the application. A gearmotor is basically a combination of an electric motor and a reduction gearbox, which is usually required to deliver high torque from a low speed output.
