Capable of handling larger “shock” loads (>500%) of rating in comparison to worm, helical, etc.
High reduction ratios and torque density in a compact dimensional footprint
Exceptional “built-in” overhung load carrying capability
High efficiency (>95%) per reduction stage
Cycloidal gearbox minimal reflected inertia to electric motor for longer service life
Just ridiculously rugged since all get-out
The overall EP design proves to be extremely durable, and it needs minimal maintenance following installation. The EP is the most dependable reducer in the industrial marketplace, and it is a perfect suit for applications in heavy industry such as for example oil & gas, major and secondary steel processing, commercial food production, metal reducing and forming machinery, wastewater treatment, extrusion gear, among others.
Cycloidal advantages over other styles of gearing;
The EP 3000 and our related products that use cycloidal gearing technology deliver the most robust solution in the most compact footprint. The main power train is made up 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 includes a curved tooth profile rather than the more traditional involute tooth profile, which gets rid of shear forces at any stage of contact. This design introduces compression forces, rather than those shear forces that would exist with an involute equipment mesh. That provides several performance benefits such as for example high shock load capability (>500% of rating), minimal friction and wear, lower mechanical service elements, among numerous others. The cycloidal style also has a big output shaft bearing period, which provides exceptional overhung load features without requiring any extra expensive components.
Torque magnification. Gearboxes provide mechanical advantage by not merely decreasing velocity but also increasing result torque.
