Mechanical drives take supplied torque and could increase or reduce that torque predicated on application. Also acceleration is increased or reduced in proportion index G – Equipment BOXES – on blue – smallto the speed decrease ratio. Ever-Power includes a full type of gearboxes and quickness reducers, and the elements needed to build them, in a wide variety of standard ratios and shaft options in addition to custom designs.
Helical, bevel, and miter equipment boxes offer the options of swiftness reducers or quickness increasers, and may be driven in either path. All Ever-Power worm equipment speed reducers and correct angle drives are manufactured for powerful in a large spectrum of applications. Typically worm gear boxes aren’t used as acceleration increasers. The situations are molded glass-filled materials making them extremely tough and resistant to corrosive environments. They can be found in a wide selection of ratios and are built with right hand or left hand worm gears. The result shafts could be solid or hollow, and load capacity is unaffected by direction and rotation.
Worm gear velocity reducers are comprised of a screw (the worm) that drives a wheel (helical gear) or one enveloping wheel and are used in mechanical applications ranging from conveyors to workout devices to robots.
Geneva mechanisms and assemblies are usually used to transform continuous rotary movement into intermittent rotary motion. The rotating drive wheel has a pin that gets to into a slot of the driven wheel advancing it by one stage and a blocking disc that locks the driven wheel in position between steps.
Compact design is one of the key words of the standard gearboxes of the BJ-Series. Further optimisation can be achieved through the use of adapted gearboxes or particular gearboxes.
Our worm gearboxes and actuators are extremely quiet. This is because of the very smooth working of the worm equipment combined with the use of cast iron and high precision on component manufacturing and assembly. In connection with our precision gearboxes, we take extra treatment of any sound which can be interpreted as a murmur from the apparatus. So the general noise level of our gearbox is reduced to a complete minimum.
On the worm gearbox the input shaft and output shaft are perpendicular to each other. This often proves to be a decisive advantage making the incorporation of the gearbox considerably simpler and more compact.The worm gearbox can be an angle gear. This is an advantage for incorporation into constructions.
Strong bearings in solid housing
The output shaft of the BJ worm gearbox is quite firmly embedded in the gear house and is perfect for direct suspension for wheels, movable arms and other areas rather than having to create a separate suspension.
For larger gear ratios,EP-Gear’s worm gearboxes will provide a self-locking effect, which in many situations can be used as brake or as extra protection. Also spindle gearboxes with a trapezoidal spindle are self-locking, making them ideal for a wide variety of solutions.
The worm-gear reducer comprises of three main parts: housing, worm-gear and wheel.
The carcasses are made from GG-25 cast-iron, and so are available for all sorts of gear-reducer. This make them perform effectively under stressed circumstances, vibrations or any type of setback that cannot be avoided during the assembly
The worm-gear is made from hardened and quench-hardened steel, with ground- on teeth sides, and the crowns manufactured from DIN (GZ-CuSn 12 Ni2) centricast bronze, melted on steel. Due to the mechanical work of these two parts having top quality, excellent functionality and low sound levels have been achived.
The output shaft is hollow, although it is possible to adapt a solid shaft.
The oil seals made of NITRILE BUTADIENE, according to DIN 3760, high quality bearings, an EPOXY- impregnated finish ( 2 components), and grey-coloured SINGLE LAYER ENAMEL finish ( 2 components) ( RAL 7672), provide the most competitive gear reducer out there.
In the size 62 of the MF series, worm-gear reducers, the output hollow shaft of diameter 30 has been included, that substitutes to the output hollow shaft with diameter 25, from size 62. This variant has like reference size 63 and is born like answer to the request of our costumers since, upon mounting greater bearings in the output, bears higher axial loads that its analogous one in the MF-62 series. The rest of technical feature are similar to the its analogous in the size 62.
In order to setup a gear reducer and to make it happen efficiently, the following instructions must be taken into account:
It must be fixed on a set surface to avoid either vibrations or tensions.
If undistributed loads or continued start-ups are foreseen, it is recommended to insert compensating couplings, connectors, torque limiters etc…
If the gear reducer had to be painted, the essential oil seals should be covered to prevent them from drying and losing their seal.
The device work of the fittings create in the output shafts require an ISO H7 or h6 margin for the hollow shaft.
It is wise to pay attention to this element when the gear reducer output shaft is driven instead of being a driver. Considering that one of the top features of this worm-equipment reducer may be the fact that can’t be axle-powered by the output shaft (irreversibility), it is almost not possible to meet up total irreversibility conditions, because of external factors such as for example vibrations, etc. This is why, when the application form requires total irreversibility, it really is advisable to utilize external brakes with enough power to avoid slipping.
It could be said that the circumstances under which irreversibility can occur are the following:
• Efficiency < 0,55 (discover table of specialized features).
This type of gear reducer is provided with a permanent lubrication, so it really does not need any kind of maintenance.
The lubrication of this gear reducer type is continuous and comes as standard, with top quality refined oil which includes antirust and antiwear products with Fe, Cu and alloy protectors that has quality level CLP DIN 51517-3, FGZ level 12, AP GL-4, US 224, AGMA 250-04; because of this its maintenance is not needed.
High reduction gear
Worm and wheel equipment pairings provide large swiftness reduction ratios with only 1 equipment pairing in a far more compact space in comparison to other styles of gears. You can expect up to maximum ratio of 100:1 with our products. Another advantage of the Worm and Wheel equipment pairings is the low level noise they produce. Some drawbacks are the general low effectiveness and the fact that they generate warmth.
Benefit of EP’s Worm Gears – “Cool rolled Worm Gears”
1) The hardness of the helicoid surface area has been attained by function hardening when the frosty rolling was performed, providing Worm gears with better mechanical properties than machined worms due to truth that the metallic fibrous structure has not been cut.
2) The surface hardness after chilly rolling is increased by 1.2 to 1 1.3 times in comparison to the hardness of the original material, and the hardness of the helicoid surface increases to around HB240 to 260.
3) Cool rolled worms are suitable for miniature gear applications since this can be rotated smoothly without damaging the worm wheels crafted from POM or other soft materials.
4) Due to the implementation of this cold rolling method, the helicoid surface area of EP-Worm (M0.5 to 2.0) comes away with a mirror like complete. Thus, EP-Precision Frosty Rolled Worms give a smooth procedure and long-term durability.
Worm gears are made of a worm and a gear (sometimes known as a worm wheel), with nonparallel, nonintersecting shafts oriented 90 degrees to one another. The worm is certainly analogous to a screw with a V-type thread, and the apparatus is usually analogous to a spur equipment. The worm is typically the driving component, with the worm’s thread advancing one’s teeth of the gear.
Such as a ball screw, the worm in a worm gear may have an individual start or multiple starts – and therefore there are multiple threads, or helicies, on the worm. For a single-start worm, each full change (360 degrees) of the worm increases the equipment by one tooth. Therefore a gear with 24 teeth will provide a gear reduced amount of 24:1. For a multi-start worm, the gear reduction equals the amount of teeth on the apparatus, divided by the amount of begins on the worm. (That is different from almost every other types of gears, where in fact the gear reduction is certainly a function of the diameters of the two components.)
The meshing of the worm and the gear is an assortment of sliding and rolling actions, but sliding contact dominates at high reduction ratios. This sliding actions causes friction and warmth, which limits the efficiency of worm gears to 30 to 50 percent. In order to minimize friction (and therefore, high temperature), the worm and gear are made from dissimilar metals – for example, the worm may be produced of hardened metal and the gear made of bronze or aluminum.
Although the sliding contact decreases efficiency, it provides very quiet operation. (The utilization of dissimilar metals for the worm and equipment also contributes to quiet operation.) This makes worm gears suitable for use where noise should be minimized, such as in elevators. In addition, the use of a softer materials for the gear means that it could absorb shock loads, like those skilled in large equipment or crushing machines.
The primary benefit of worm gears is their ability to provide high reduction ratios and correspondingly high torque multiplication. They can also be utilized as quickness reducers in low- to moderate-rate applications. And, because their reduction ratio is based on the amount of gear teeth alone, they are more compact than other types of gears. Like fine-pitch lead screws, worm gears are typically self-locking, which makes them well suited for hoisting and lifting applications.
Worms & Worm Gears
EP Gear’s worms and worm gears provide a highly effective answer for power transmission applications requiring high-ratio rate reduction in a restricted space using right angle (90°), nonintersecting shafts. When properly applied, worms and worm gears supply the smoothest, quietest form of gearing.
Because the effectiveness of a worm gear drive depends on the lead angle and quantity of starts on the worm – and because increased effectiveness is always a goal, the ratio ought to be kept only possible. To run correctly, worms and worm gears utilized together must have the same diametral pitch and threads.
