12V DC Motor

MET Motors manufactures a custom designed 12V DC Motor for many Original Equipment Manufacturers around the world. The 12VDC Motor that we construct is rated from fractional horsepower to 2 HP, running at speeds up to 5,000 RPM. These 12V DC Motors can also be designed for applications that require different voltages, such as 24 Volts, 36 Volts, and others up to 180 Volts. If you have any questions about your application, whether you need a DC Motor 12V or a motor with another voltage, our experienced sales engineers would be happy to help you. Please call them at 507-389-4906 for their expert assistance..


At MET Motors we customize every motor for our customers at no extra cost to them. All of our motors are manufactured custom to each precise application, and every 12V Motor has been matched to the performance requirements for the application. The design of that particular 12V Electric Motor is then sold only to that original customer. All inquiries from users in the field are then directed to the initial Original Equipment Manufacturer. We respect our customers, and we enter into written non-disclosure agreements with many of them.

Here at MET we pride ourselves on our high quality products. Our 12V DC Electric Motor is made with the highest quality standards and configured for you based on our proprietary design software.  Each 12VDC Motor is then crafted by our skilled workers just for your application. You can be sure that your 12V DC Motor or 24V, as well as any other voltage, is manufactured right here in the USA. Minnesota Electric Technology has headquarters in Mankato, Minnesota with production facilities a few miles away in Winnebago, MN. Since we are conveniently located in the USA, our lead times are shorter than with overseas vendors, and we can provide improved on-time delivery to our customers.

MET the Problem Solvers – design flexibility

A product engineer wanted a motor with special mounting holes on the drive end. His present supplier would not provide that modification until the purchase volume was larger. MET supplied the customer motors with his special mounting holes for the initial small quantity orders, thereby earning the larger production quantity orders later. (Read more…)

What are some applications that use a 12VDC?

A MET DC Motor 12V can be used in many different applications. Some applications are:

How do I calculate my estimated current draw in amps?

When calculating the current draw in amps with a 12 VDC Motor you can use the following guidelines:

  • 0.1 HP = 8 amperes
  • 0.2 HP = 17 amperes
  • 0.5 HP = 42 amperes
  • 1.0 HP = 85 amperes

Since choosing the right 12V DC Electric Motor can be challenging, it is important that you work with the right company. Visit our blog to read more about why MET is the perfect supplier for you.
