What is the function of the reducer?

The reducer is generally used for low-speed and high-torque transmission equipment. The power of the motor, internal combustion engine or other high-speed operation is achieved by meshing the gear with a small number of teeth on the input shaft of the reducer with the large gear on the output shaft to achieve the purpose of deceleration. The reducer will also have several pairs of gears with the same principle to achieve the ideal deceleration effect. The ratio of the number of teeth of the large and small gears is the transmission ratio.Let me tell you about the function of the reducer!

Reducer function

  1) Reduce speed and increase output torque at the same time. The torque output ratio is the motor output multiplied by the reduction ratio, but it must be noted that the rated torque of the reducer cannot be exceeded.

  2) Speed ​​reduction reduces the inertia of the load at the same time, and the reduction in inertia is the square of the reduction ratio.You can see that a general motor has an inertia value.
