Right angle gearboxes (worm and planetary) are rugged and built for 90° turns. Inline reducers (parallel shaft and planetary) are a perfect match for motors with high insight speeds, or when gearmotor effectiveness is important. Contact our technical sales staff for help determining which gearbox solution is best for you.
RIGHT ANGLE REDUCERS
WORM GEAR REDUCER
EP’s worm equipment reducers were created with a hollow bore and allow for a corner change with optional dual result. The reducers can be found in 12 ratios ranging from 5:1 to 100:1, with non-back-drivable ratios 30:1 and higher. Our right angle gearboxes are designed with five mounting choices providing flexibility when incorporating the reducer into product.
RIGHT ANGLE BEVEL GEARBOX
The proper angle bevel gearbox combines the top features of our right angle worm and planetary inline reducers. With a good and efficient right angle configuration, our right angle planetary gearboxes offer a robust solution. The right angle bevel gearbox comes in 18 ratios ranging from 5:1 to 1000:1, and it is back-drivable at all ratios.
I-SERIES PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our I-Series little planetary gearbox configurations supply the smallest footprint and quietest operation of our acceleration reducers. These gearboxes are created to manage varying loads with small backlash. With framework sizes 52cm, 62cm, and 81cm, 12 ratios which range from 5:1 to 308:1, we have a solution to fit your needs. Our 52 frame size is also available with plastic gears for noise-delicate applications.
INLINE PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our inline planetary gearbox configurations provide the highest efficiency and best result torque of all our acceleration reducers. These gearboxes are created to manage varying loads with small backlash. Planetary gear reducers operate more quietly than parallel shaft reducers. With 18 ratio options which range from 5:1 to 1000:1, we’ve a solution to suit your needs.
PARALLEL SHAFT GEARBOX
Parallel shaft gearboxes are the best choice for constant duty applications. Their equipment cluster design provides an effective method for dissipating temperature. Parallel shaft gearboxes possess the shortest length of our inline equipment reducer options so they work well in environments with limited space. Our parallel shaft gear reducers provide an affordable drop-in replacement solution for most small parallel shaft gearmotors.
Wormwheel gearboxes go by several names, including 90-degree gearboxes, right position gearboxes, velocity reducers, worm gear reducers and worm drive gearboxes. Gear reduction boxes feature a gear arrangement in which a gear in the kind of a screw, also known as a worm, meshes with a worm equipment. These gears are usually created from bronze and the worms are steel or stainless steel.
While worm gears act like a spur equipment, the worm gearboxes are significantly smaller than other equipment reduction boxes. A principal benefit of worm gear reducers is definitely that they produce an output that’s 90° from the input and can be utilized to transmit higher torque or reduce rotational speed. Most often, a worm gearbox has right hand threads; to change the direction of the output, a left-hands thread worm gearbox is required.
