Coupling a Motor to a LoadIt should not be surprising that with so many load types and motor types, there are many ways to couple a motor to a load! The rotary motors are more common, but linear and even planar motors are available. Although the linear motors are more specialized and would rarely be used to move a rotary load, converting rotary motors to linear motion is very common. The subject is very broad, so this article will focus more on servo applicable gear heads.

Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad
While the old adage of “Two out of three ain’t bad” might be true for MLB hitters, or weather forecasters; it however can be disastrous when it comes to making thorough gearbox selections. When specifying gear reducers, one must consider not merely the mechanical ratings adjusted for service factor, but also consider thermal limitations, and overhung load ratings.
