A DC motor is an electromechanical device the uses electrical energy to generate torque on a shaft, causing rotation, using magnetic fields.
Gearing is purely mechanical and can be used to change the direction of rotational movement or trade rotation speed for torque.
A gear motor is any kind of motor that has a gearbox attached to it. These are two different categories. A gear motor can be either AC or DC.
They are often used together to obtain specific speed and torques values in order to drive a specific piece of driven equipment, like fan blades, compressor, pumps, mechanical drives, flywheels or anything else that needs to turn to operates.
