How Shaft Mount Speed Reducers Work

March 24, 2017

Working with motor powered machines might be both challenging and equally rewarding. One peculiar way of dealing with them relates to the ability to regulate the operational speed of the revolving shaft. It is for this reason that shaft mounted gear reducers have been created to pave way for innovative management of your operational speed. By controlling the rotational speed of the shaft, the overall torque output of the machine is effectively controlled.


Speed reducers are primarily deployed in mechanical devices for two reasons, first to add a multiplier effect on the overall torque, and two, to regulate the input power speed as to achieve a workable speed. By selecting the right gear reducers, you are sure of effectively attaining a balanced working environment where every process is effectively managed. By having the throughput of the shaft in your motor, it becomes manageable to control the movements of the components involving heavy rotation.


For the best results, the speed reducer is aligned with the output shaft that delivers the torque. This way, the operational speed of the revolving arm is put on shaft, while increasing its functionality, especially when being used for long. It is also important to select a gear reducer that matches the size of the motor’s shaft. Although larger gear reducers are more effective and reliable, they should only be used with the appropriate motor shafts.
