EP Gear’s 700 Series high-strength bronze worm gear is straddle mounted between heavy-duty tapered roller bearings to improve thrust and overhung load capacities, sizes 713-760.
Our 700 Series’ high-strength steel output shaft assures capacity for high torque and overhung loads.
Pipe plugs allow easy fill, level, and drain in any mounting position.
The 700 Series’ super-finished oil-seal diameters on both input and output shafts extend seal existence.
Both 2D and 3D CAD drawings are available in our eCatalog.
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 input speeds, or when gearmotor efficiency is important. Contact our technical sales staff for help determining which gearbox answer is most beneficial for you.
RIGHT ANGLE REDUCERS
WORM GEAR REDUCER
EP’s worm gear reducers were created with a hollow bore and invite for a corner switch with optional dual output. The reducers can be found in 12 ratios which range from 5:1 to 100:1, with non-back-drivable ratios 30:1 and higher. Our right angle gearboxes were created with five mounting choices providing flexibility when incorporating the reducer into product.
RIGHT ANGLE BEVEL GEARBOX
The right 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, in fact it is back-drivable at all ratios.
I-SERIES PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our I-Series small planetary gearbox configurations provide the smallest footprint and quietest operation of our swiftness reducers. These gearboxes are made to handle varying loads with little backlash. With body sizes 52cm, 62cm, and 81cm, 12 ratios ranging from 5:1 to 308:1, we’ve a solution to fit your needs. Our 52 frame size is also available with plastic-type gears for noise-delicate applications.
INLINE PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our inline planetary gearbox configurations supply the highest efficiency and best output torque of all our swiftness reducers. These gearboxes are designed 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 will be the best choice for constant duty applications. Their equipment cluster design provides an effective method for dissipating temperature. Parallel shaft gearboxes have the shortest length of our inline gear reducer options therefore they work very well in conditions with limited space. Our parallel shaft equipment reducers provide an affordable drop-in alternative solution for most small parallel shaft gearmotors.
Wormwheel gearboxes pass worm reduction gearbox several names, including 90-degree gearboxes, right position gearboxes, acceleration reducers, worm gear reducers and worm drive gearboxes. Gear decrease boxes include a gear arrangement when a gear in the type of a screw, also referred to as a worm, meshes with a worm equipment. These gears are typically created from bronze and the worms are steel or stainless steel.
While worm gears are similar to a spur equipment, the worm gearboxes are significantly smaller than other equipment reduction boxes. A main benefit of worm equipment reducers is that they create an output that’s 90° from the insight and can be utilized to transmit higher torque or decrease rotational speed. Most often, a worm gearbox provides right hand threads; to change the direction of the output, a left-hand thread worm gearbox is necessary.
