Electric motors are the backbone of modern automation. They convert electrical energy into mechanical energy, and the resulting motion and torque drives the load.Motors come in all shapes and sizes and can be found in a variety of applications like industrial fans, blowers, pumps, machine tools, household appliances, power tools, disk drives, conveyors, heavy machinery, robotics, and motor vehicles.
Electric motors are available in a wide variety of frame sizes and speeds. With brands like Marathon Motors, Baldor Electric, Lessons Electric and WEG electric, US Motors , Toshiba Crimson electric is equipped with many electric motor options perfect for a variety of applications.

A sprocket is a simple mechanical wheel with teeth or small notches which are designed to rotate and engage with the links of a chain or belt. Crimson electric carries high-quality products for a wide range of industries and applications including roller chains, conveyor chains, sprockets, cable & hose carrier systems, clutches and backstops, and continuous flex cables.
The most common uses of a VFD are for control of fans, pumps and compressors, and these applications account for 75% of all drives operating globally. Soft starters and across-the-line contactors are other, less sophisticated types of motor controllers.
In general, gearmotors function as torque multipliers and speed reducers, requiring less motor power to drive a given load. The gear housing design, the gearing type, gear lubrication, and the specific mode of integration all affect the gearmotor performance.
When a geared motor is used, the motor's torque is multiplied by the gear ratio and gear efficiency. A geared motor will output more running and holding torque than an ungeared, standard motor.
