The difference between reducer and gearbox

Reducer motor mainly refers to the gear motor assembled by gear box and motor. Its main function is to increase the torque and reduce the speed. It is widely used in many factories. It is generally decelerated by means of gearbox.

Reducer motor refers to the integration of reducer and motor (motor), which can also be called gear motor or gear motor. It is usually integrated and assembled by a professional reducer manufacturer and integrated with the motor. The reducer motor is a kind of power transmission mechanism, which is used in applications where high torque is required and high speed is not required. For example: automation special equipment With the development of industry and the automation of factory, the demand of using reducer is growing. There are many ways to reduce the speed, but the commonly used method is to reduce the occupied space and reduce the cost. Therefore, some people also call the reducer as the gearbox.


The transmission machine is a kind of rotating machine, which converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. It mainly includes an electromagnet winding or distributed stator winding used to produce magnetic field and a rotating armature or rotor. The current in the wire passes through and is driven by the magnetic field to rotate. Some types of these machines can be used as motors or generators. Variable speed motor is a kind of equipment that transforms the power frequency power (50 Hz or 60 Hz) into AC power of various frequencies to realize the variable speed operation of the motor. The control circuit controls the main circuit, the rectifier circuit converts the alternating current into direct current, the intermediate DC circuit smoothes and filters the output of the rectifier circuit, and the inverter circuit reverses the direct current into alternating current. Variable frequency speed regulation is to achieve the purpose of adjustment by changing the frequency of motor stator winding power supply.
