 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hello there,

Who recommends which motor manufacturers based on quality?

I'm looking for a very quiet and durable motor or gear motor.

Thanks!

Does the type of motor matter?  Motors become less durable if they have commutators, or cheap bearings, and especially if they have gears.  What's the application?  Quietness and durability would suggest a hall-sensored BLDC, and a lot of these are high quality engineering items (but not cheap).

One of the best motor manufacturers on the planet, IMHO; just don't expect to get them cheap.

I will not respond to Arduino help PM's from random forum users; if you have such a question, start a new topic thread.

If you want the ultimate in quality find a company that supplies components for either space or medical hardware perhaps?
