Inexpensive gear head source?

Inexpensive gear head source?

Inexpensive gear head source?

Can anyone offer a good inexpensive source for gear heads for a NEMA 23 motor?  I need a ratio of around 20:1 with e final output torque around 32 in-lb and 150 rpm.  Back drivable is need too.  Of course, a good cheap 75 watt 3-phase motor would be helpful too but the Pittman motors seem ok.  :)  Quantity is around 300/year.


RE: Inexpensive gear head source?

Check the Grainger or Minarik catalogs for gearmotors large and small at the quantities you need. (About 70 of my designs are in both.)
