Capable of handling larger “shock” loads (>500%) of rating in comparison to worm, helical, etc.
High 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 engine for longer service life
Just ridiculously rugged as 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, in fact it is a perfect match for applications in large industry such as for example oil & gas, principal and secondary metal processing, commercial food production, metal cutting and forming machinery, wastewater treatment, extrusion products, among others.
Cycloidal advantages over additional styles of gearing;
The EP 3000 and our related products that utilize cycloidal gearing technology deliver the most robust solution in the most compact footprint. The primary power train is made up of an eccentric roller bearing that drives a wheel around a set of inner pins, keeping the decrease high and the rotational inertia low. The wheel includes a curved tooth profile instead of the more traditional involute tooth profile, which removes shear forces at any point of contact. This design introduces compression forces, rather than those shear forces that could can be found with an involute gear mesh. That provides a number of performance benefits such as for example high shock load capacity (>500% of rating), minimal friction and put on, lower mechanical service factors, among many others. The cycloidal design also has a Cycloidal gearbox sizable output shaft bearing period, which provides exceptional overhung load capabilities without requiring any extra expensive components.
Torque magnification. Gearboxes offer mechanical advantage by not merely decreasing quickness but also increasing result torque.
