Round shaft type vs GE pinion shaft type?

Postby ampersand » Fri Aug 09, 2013 3:19 am

What is the difference between round shaft type and GE pinion shaft type? A would like connect a gearbox to motor with GE shaft type.

Hi,

The difference between a round-shaft motor and a GE pinion shaft type motor is the shape of the motor shaft. A round shaft has a round, smooth surface with a flat cut on one side. It is not meant to be mounted to a gearbox. The flat is there so you can easily assemble a coupling with a set screw or some other means of connecting the motor to your load. A pinion shaft is designed to easily mate with the gears inside our dedicated gearboxes, so it has spiral grooves cut all the way around the shaft. A motor with a GE pinion shaft type would need to be matched up with a 5GE type gearbox (gearbox part number starts with "5GE"). You can also type your Oriental Motor "motor only" part number in the part number search on our website, and all possible compatible gearbox combinations would come up in the search results.

For additional information, pictures below show our surface treatment/machining process of our motor's pinion shaft from raw material to finished product. The hardening process and finishing cut process increases durability as well as smoothes out the surface of the shaft. This reduces noise that can be generated between the pinion shaft and 1st stage gear inside the gearbox. We also use a special toothed 1st stage gear to help reduce noise variation between CW and CCW rotation.

Side note: our motors are only designed to fit our own dedicated line of parallel, right-angle, and linear type gearheads.
