Capable of handling larger “shock” loads (>500%) of rating compared 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 electric motor for longer service life
Just ridiculously rugged since all get-out
The overall EP design proves to be extremely durable, and it requires minimal maintenance following installation. The EP may be the most dependable reducer in the industrial marketplace, and it is a perfect fit for applications in weighty industry such as oil & gas, major and secondary steel processing, industrial food production, metal cutting and forming machinery, wastewater treatment, extrusion products, 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 primary 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 Cycloidal gearbox 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 exist with an involute gear mesh. That provides a number of efficiency benefits such as for example high shock load capacity (>500% of rating), minimal friction and use, lower mechanical service elements, among many others. The cycloidal design also has a big output shaft bearing period, which gives exceptional overhung load features without requiring any extra expensive components.
Torque magnification. Gearboxes offer mechanical advantage by not only decreasing rate but also increasing result torque.
