Variable speed gear motors

Robust, durable and cost-efficient variable speed gear motors. In standard versions and available with many options.

Variable speed gear motors for direct and robust speed control

Variable speed gear motors offer robust and direct speed control for machine builders and end users. BEGE helical and helical bevel variable speed gear motors are compact and available in 7 different frame sizes.

BEGE is the only manufacturer in the Netherlands, so communication is clear and direct. Our variable speed gear motors have a variable control range of 1:10 and can be adjusted when the machine is in operation or stopped. This prevents production downtime.

Product overview

Electronic transmission control is not always the right solution. It is vulnerable and sensitive to chemicals and moisture. This can lead to a multitude of issues. Mechanical transmission controls are a robust alternative. Variable speed gear motors with hand wheel allow the user to control the drive speed quickly and directly in humid working conditions. There is no need for an electrical controller. In addition, they are usually more cost-efficient in terms of maintenance, service life and ease of use.

We manufacture a wide range:

AM – Serie

Helical Variable Speed Gear Motor

Simple, robust and reliable. They can be used in a wide range of conditions without any expensive electronics.

  • Power: 0,09 kW– 1,5 kW
  • Max. torque: 2590 Nm
  • Shaft diameter: 12 mm – 75 mm

AM/M – Serie

Helical Bevel Variable Speed Gear Motor

A reliable choice for angled applications. The speed can be set with a hand wheel very quickly and easily.

  • Power: 0,09 kW – 1,5 kW
  • Max. torque: 1000 Nm
  • Shaft diameter: 16 mm – 50 mm

Custom variable speed gear motors

In addition to our wide range of frame sizes and gear ratios, we also supply custom solutions. This can be useful for new machines with industry-specific requirements.

  • Stainless steel output shaft
  • Brake motor
  • Remote speed indicator (digital or analog)
  • Electric remote control
  • Forced cooling

For replacements, custom solutions often offer higher reliability, lower cost and easy exchange.

Where necessary, we can use drawings or reverse engineering to create replacement variable speed gear motors for uncommon existing sizes. These gear motors are equipped with an IEC electric motor as standard, making it easy to replace only the motor.

BEGE is clearly ahead of other providers in this respect.

Manufacturer of robust variable speed gear motors

Our robust variable speed gear motors offer direct speed control with optimal reliability even in the toughest working conditions.

Hand wheel adjustment

No frequency converter required. This avoids the use of vulnerable electronics in a humid environment. There is also no need to stop production to adjust the speed.

Dutch manufacturer

BEGE has its own brand, Ströter, and is the only manufacturer in the Netherlands. This makes BEGE the partner of choice for both standard and custom variable speed gear motors.

Compact and low maintenance

Our variable speed gear motors are more compact than those of other suppliers. This means they can be used anywhere. They are fully integrated, quiet and low-maintenance.

Application of variable speed gear motors

Our variable speed gear motors have an incredible range of applications. Here we give two examples of situations where a variable speed gear motor is beneficial:

Variable speed conveyor belt

In the food industry, for example, the (semi-finished) products transported on the production line may be different in size. This requires fast, immediate speed adjustment, which is exactly what a variable speed gear motor offers you.

Irrigation systems

Agricultural work is all about robustness and reliability. Our variable speed gear motors are at home in environments subject to weather conditions, water, dust and sand. Our drive systems simply keep on going.
