What are the advantages of a gear motor over a servo motor?

Gear motors and servo motors have their own advantages and disadvantages. The following are the advantages of gear motors over servo motors:

1. Higher carrying capacity: Gear motors have gear reducers that can withstand larger loads.

2. Better stability: Gear motors have stable speed reduction, and the output speed is not easily affected by load changes or voltage fluctuations, and has good stability.

3. Lower cost: The hardware cost of gear motors is lower than that of servo motors, reducing equipment costs.

4. Higher reliability: Gear motors are a relatively simple mechanical device, which does not have too many electronic components and complex control mechanisms, so the failure rate is low.

5. Suitable for some low-end applications: If the application requires low accuracy and economical equipment, choosing a gear motor will be a more suitable choice.

In summary, gear motors have the advantages of higher carrying capacity, better stability, lower cost, and higher reliability. However, gear motors do not have the same precision, control, and responsiveness capabilities as servo motors. Therefore, the specific motor type should be selected according to the needs of the application, weighing the pros and cons.
