• Compact size to even fit some medium sized projects

How many rotations per minute can this motor gearbox do?

This 6:1 motor gearbox can deliver up to 3295 rotations per minute (rpm) and torque up to (gram-force cm) at 12V great for projects which require high rpm. The motor can spin in either direction dependant on the input polarity. At just 71mm (96mm including shaft) x 39mm x 47mm this motor gearbox can fit into most medium sized projects and with the integrated gearbox you can save on space. It comes with its own 1mm thick plated steel bracket mount

What can I use this motor gearbox for?

This is a powerful motor with an integral gearbox suitable for heavy-duty industrial or model applications. The motor is capable of high torque transfer through the gears. The built-in gearbox can increase your turning power (torque) at a reduced rotations per minute from the motor. The optimum ratio for this will depend on your project. Solidly constructed from steel and brass with sintered bronze bearings, a high quality three pole motor and a 5.98mm diameter central output shaft. This motor gearbox is ideal for DC 4.5-15V powered mechanisms with a wide range of application from industrial uses to modelling or hobbies or to demonstrate mechanical principles for educational kits.
