and Speed Reducers

Introduction to Motors and Speed Reducers

Motors and speed reducers are cornerstone components in a myriad of industrial applications. They work in tandem to convert electrical energy into mechanical energy, effectively managing the speed and torque of machinery. Ivor Bearings brings you a detailed exploration of motors and speed reducers, shedding light on their critical functions and applications across industries.


The driving force behind every machine, motors are designed to convert electrical energy into mechanical motion. They come in various types, including AC (alternating current) and DC (direct current) motors, each suited for different industrial tasks.

Speed Reducer (Gearbox)

A mechanical device that reduces the speed transmitted from the motor to the machinery. Speed reducers increase torque while decreasing speed, providing greater control and efficiency in operations. They are essential in applications requiring precision and control over machinery movement.
