Capable of handling larger “shock” loads (>500%) of rating compared to worm, helical, etc.
High Cycloidal gearbox reduction ratios and torque density in a concise dimensional footprint
Exceptional “built-in” overhung load carrying capability
High efficiency (>95%) per reduction stage
Minimal reflected inertia to electric motor for longer service life
Just ridiculously rugged since all get-out
The entire EP design proves to be extremely durable, and it needs minimal maintenance following installation. The EP is the most reliable reducer in the commercial marketplace, and it is a perfect match for applications in weighty industry such as for example oil & gas, principal and secondary metal processing, commercial food production, metal trimming and forming machinery, wastewater treatment, extrusion tools, among others.
Cycloidal advantages over various other styles of gearing;
The EP 3000 and our related products that make use of cycloidal gearing technology deliver the most robust solution in the most compact footprint. The main power train is comprised of an eccentric roller bearing that drives a wheel around a set of inner pins, keeping the reduction high and the rotational inertia low. The wheel incorporates a curved tooth profile instead of the more traditional involute tooth profile, which eliminates shear forces at any point of contact. This style introduces compression forces, instead of those shear forces that could can be found with an involute equipment mesh. That provides a number of performance benefits such as high shock load capability (>500% of ranking), minimal friction and wear, lower mechanical service factors, among many others. The cycloidal style also has a large output shaft bearing span, which gives exceptional overhung load capabilities without requiring any additional expensive components.
Torque magnification. Gearboxes offer mechanical advantage by not only decreasing velocity but also increasing output torque.
