When it comes time to choose DC electric motors for use in products or systems under development or those about to go into mass production, design engineers typically base their final motor selection on three key factors: power, speed and shaft configuration.
Of those three key motor output factors, Bosch contends that it is the availability of different shaft configurations that may very well be the most important item on the design engineers’ motor specifications checklist.
“Having access to a wide range of shaft configurations can be especially helpful to design engineers during the early stages of product development,” says Kenn Langosch with Bosch industrial motors. “It gives them an opportunity to consider each shaft design’s effectiveness for working in tandem with another component. The design engineer’s choice of shaft configuration for an application can also result in time and cost savings during the assembly phase of production.”
To address this need for a range of shaft configurations, the Bosch i-Business Group offers more than 500 different part numbers for 12-24 volt Bosch DC electric motors. Bosch’s range of DC electric motors includes brushless and brush-type motors. Nominal power ranges for these motors is from 0.22 W to 2.38 kW, with nominal torque from 2 Ncm to 7 Nm.
