All of this with the purpose of offering our know how to the international community of electromechanical engineers.

Are you not convinced yet? Maybe the following posts can help.


Mechanical Engineer, here the 5 most successful articles in CLR’s blog


  1. Spur gears or helical gears

    Gears are key parts for the proper operation of motor and machine actuators. Their use varies depending on torque, reliability, speed or noise levels needs and requirements for each application. By reading this article, you will know for certain when it is advisable to opt for one or another type of gear.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     > > Visit article

  2. Differences between brushed and brushless motors

    Who hasn’t faced this issue? The differences between these electric motors are related to their operation and structure, and they can offer a very dissimilar performance when compared to each other. Thanks to this article, you will have a much better grasp of their differences and caveats.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               > >  Visit article
