DC Gear Motor Assemby Design

  1. Nov 21, 2005 #1
    Maybe someone on these forums is associated with the electronic motor industry. My company is looking for a custom 24V dc gear motor assembly to actuate hydraulic ball valves. It would be a component we would offer with our product line. None of us have enough experience these types of devices to design a final product. We would be interested in finding a manufacturer to design to our specs. Something with the torque of a 24V Cordless Dewalt drill would be adequate.

    Could anyone recommend a design manufacturer that might be able to help us?

    I know that Rucker produces a vast range of hydraulics devices. I'll go see if I can find a link.

    Okay, I'm back. Sorry dude... no joy there. I don't know if they've gone out of business or just aren't net-available.

    What kind of production numbers are you talking about. I know of a small company here in Michigan that does custom drives and motors. I don't know too much about their production abilities though. You might give them a try.
