Gear Reducers for Electric Motors

Constructed using two or more gears, shafts, and bearings in configuration and enclosed in a lubricated housing, gear reducers help you get the correct rotational direction, speed, and torque needed for your application.

Right Angle Gear Reducers

Right-angle (90 degree) gear reducers from 5:1 to 100:1 reduction. Ideal for applications with low speed and high torque requirements. C-flanged input for convenience and maintenance.

IRA Right Angle Gear Motor

A range of worm and worm/helical right angle enclosed gearing available as gearmotors and C-face reducers with Ratios available from 7:1 to 350:1.


Gearmotor is an all-in-one combination of an electric motor and a gearbox. It is a simple, cost-effective solution for high-torque, low-speed applications.

Gear Motor Module

These modules are used for Gearmotors customization or assemblies replacement.

Shaft Mount Reducers

eMotors Direct has Canada’s largest selection of WorldWide Electric shaft mounted speed reducers. Available in 15:1 and 25:1 ratios and box sizes 2-12.

Ratio Multiplier

Ratio multipliers increase or reduce input speed when combined with right angle units for high ratios.

    Gear reducers convert high-speed, rotational energy from an electric motor to an output shaft. Their purpose is to reduce the output speed of the motor while proportionally increasing the output torque.

    They come in a broad range of sizes, capabilities, and speed ratios. You can find gear reducers in applications like conveyor systems, mixers, cranes, and hoists, most often used in applications where the motor needs to run in an overload situation without causing damage due to overheating.

    You’ll find many different types of gears inside a gearbox. The kind of gear you’ll need depends on your requirements, low initial cost, noise and vibration limitations, thermal ratings, service factor, and operational efficiency. The inline and right-angle gearboxes used in electric motor applications can have a few different types of internal gears, worm gears, helical and double-helical gears, bevel, planetary, and spur gears.

    Another device that is used for gear reduction is a Gearmotor. Gearmotors are both the motor and gearing components housed within a single unit and are most often used in smaller applications where space is a limiting factor.
