AC gear motors are designed to handle a variety of loads at a fairly consistent speed. For applications requiring high levels of output torque, consider a planetary right angle or inline gear reducer. Parallel shaft and right angle worm reducers are ideal for products with limited space due to the smaller gearbox footprints.
AC motors and gear motors include single-phase motors used with a single-phase AC power Auto Chain supply and three-phase motors used with a three-phase AC power supply. A single-phase motor can be operated by simply connecting it to a single-phase power supply via the supplied capacitor. A three-phase motor does not require a capacitor. All you need is to connect the motor directly to a three-phase AC power supply.

We offer a wide range of AC Motors & Gear Motors

Constant Speed or Speed Control AC Motors available
Single-Phase or Three-Phase Types
Gear and Electromagnetic Brake Options
Our AC Gearmotors come permanently lubricated for life with synthetic grease or oil lubrication depending on gearhead design. Most right angle gearhead types feature Baldor’s exclusive oil expansion bladder which allows for multiple mounting positions and prevents oil contamination. Our AC Gearmotors also feature high strength bronze gearing with hardened and ground worm for quiet operation.
