Looking for a motor with through shaft and one end has a 90 degree gearbox

Looking for a motor with through shaft and one end has a 90 degree gearbox

Looking for a motor with through shaft and one end has a 90 degree gearbox

(OP)
Im working on a small table top machine, and I need a motor to run two things at once, but at different speeds. Because of the movement of the machine, the best solution is one motor, two separate motors is not really an option. So I thought of a motor with a through shaft, but the shafts need to be perpendicular to eachother, and the one end needs to run slower and have more torque, so I figured that a 90 degree gearbox would work. However, I have run into a problem finding one like that. The one end with the gearbox only needs to run at about 30-50rpm, and the other end does not matter as much. If anyone could point me in the right direction that would help I have hit a wall on my own.

Buy a motor.

Buy a gearbox.

Couple them.

Those cheap wet grinding machines from the DIY market do exactly that.

You can buy c-face miter gearboxes from companies like Hub City. There are options that could give you what you are looking for. Call them and explain what you want, they have phones.

RE: Looking for a motor with through shaft and one end has a 90 degree gearbox

"they have phones." but it seems many posters' in many fora don't have phones - so they ask us instead mad

It is a capital mistake to theorise before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts. (Sherlock Holmes - A Scandal in Bohemia.)

I can't find a motor that fits the specs I need. I've called a dozen places and none of them make them. I cannot find a DC motor with a dual shaft that has enough torque and runs at low rpms. I could even work with a motor with a hollow shaft but they are all either too large or too small.

Parvalux - first manufacturer I think of for small motor-gearboxes. There won't be many DC motor/gearbox combinations that are new to them.

Failing to mention either the desired torque levels and that a DC motor would be used complicates potential answers. This is particularly true as DC motors do a terrible job of maintaining an RPM level and most table-tops have AC power available to them, at least more than have DC power.

Josh_578,

How about a double ended motor with a gearbox on one side?

Single end motor drive a double output shaft gearbox with a 90 gearbox on one of those shafts.

RE: Looking for a motor with through shaft and one end has a 90 degree gearbox

It would sure help if we knew how much power and torque we are talking about here.

I wouldn't even think of using a DC motor for a "real" application. Use an AC motor and a VFD. Off the shelf bits and pieces. Done.
