Your Guide to the Right Angle Gear Motor

January 27, 2020

Right angle gear motors are used in a myriad of industrial and assembly applications. Dependable by design, these motors are known for their ability to enhance the efficiency and productivity of everyday operations.


The Right Angle Motor Configuration


Right anglegear motor configurations are defined by the driveshaft and the output shaft – which are both fixed at 90 degrees of each other (hence the name, right angle gear motor). Bevel gears are commonly used in right angle motor configurations, and have intersecting gear shafts. Right angle motors are compact, and are great for set-ups where all working space must be maximized.


Right angle motors do not compromise on speed, efficiency, or power in their ability to also accommodate space constraints. This makes them suitable for a range of operational functions – including in industrial equipment, for use in various medical applications, material handling needs, beverage dispensing, packaging, and conveyor operations.


Types of Right Angle Motors


Within the umbrella of right angle gear motors, exist sub-categories of motors classified by the type of gear used in the motor’s configuration. The two most common types of right angle gear motors are worm gear right angle motors, and helical gear right angle motors.
