The cost of gearbox replacements and rebuilds as well as the downtime, associated with these failures, increases the cost of production. To prevent potential failures and decrease the cost of manufacture, it is critical to understand the gear motor’s performance to prevent their failures.
Understanding the importance of having the right drive system in place, Mellor Electrics takes pride in producing high-quality gear motors, supplied with accurate technical documentation for optimal performance.
As a result of these thorough testing procedures, Mellor gained all the relevant output info their customers required. They were able to profile the gear motor’s performance under various loads, noting the motor’s speed, torque and power output, as well as calculating the motor efficiency. The latter then was plotted on a speed/torque graph and used in a datasheet, enabling Mellor Electrics to design future samples for the customers’ requirements, faster and easier.
