Mini Motor Gearhead

B16 - Mini Motor Gearhead

B16

A combination of our B16 spur gearheads with our brush DC coreless motors provides a single, factory-integrated solution for demanding, high-efficiency applications. Due to its spur compound geartrain arrangement, it provides the output in the same axis as of the motor. The B16 gearhead's inherent design results in overall better efficiency and lower noise which are the requirements for wide ranging applications like medical pumps, security and access and luxury goods.
