Plug in motor

A plug in motor is a motor gearbox with a hollow axle. These transmissions can be directly pushed onto the axle to be driven. This leads to the name "plug in motor".

Plug in motors are available in various versions. You can find more specifications on the page with motor gearboxes. The worm gearbox and bevel gearbox are right-angled versions of a plug in motor. The parallel gearboxes are aligned with the axle to be driven. The plug in motors are employed in particular with conveyor belts. The great advantage is that no open transmission (via a chain or V-belt) is necessary. An open transmission requires regular maintenance, whereas the requirement for maintenance for a closed motor gearbox is much lower, and is sometimes wholly unnecessary.
