DC Motors and DC Gear Motors Explained

A DC motor and DC gear motor are both manufactured with a brushed or brushless motor and feature either a standard or coreless design. 

A DC gear motor features the same basic motor design as a DC motor but also includes a gearbox to create a single motion control component. This design allows speed reduction while increasing torque output in electromechanical applications. A DC motor and DC gear motor are both manufactured with a brushed or brushless motor and feature either a standard or coreless design. They are compact, cost-effective and used in applications ranging from vending machines to robotics equipment. The two most prominent types of gear motors are planetary and spur gear motors. Read our in depth design note on planetary vs. spur gear motors, for a further understanding of each types advantages.

Direct current motors, known as DC motors, are rotating electrical devices that convert electrical energy into mechanical energy. When DC voltage is applied to the motor terminal, an inductor coil produces a magnetic field to create rotary motion. A shaft inside the motor contains two magnets that generate repulsive and attractive forces to produce torque.
