Capable of handling larger “shock” loads (>500%) of rating compared 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
Minimal reflected inertia to engine for longer service life
Just ridiculously rugged because all get-out
The entire EP design proves to be extremely durable, and it requires minimal maintenance following installation. The EP may be the most reliable reducer in the commercial Cycloidal gearbox marketplace, and it is a perfect suit for applications in weighty industry such as oil & gas, major and secondary metal processing, commercial food production, metal slicing and forming machinery, wastewater treatment, extrusion gear, among others.
Cycloidal advantages over additional 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 comprised of an eccentric roller bearing that drives a wheel around a couple of inner pins, keeping the reduction high and the rotational inertia low. The wheel incorporates a curved tooth profile instead of the more traditional involute tooth profile, which eliminates shear forces at any point of contact. This style introduces compression forces, rather than those shear forces that could exist with an involute gear mesh. That provides several functionality benefits such as for example high shock load capacity (>500% of rating), minimal friction and wear, lower mechanical service factors, among many others. The cycloidal style also has a large output shaft bearing span, which gives exceptional overhung load capabilities without requiring any additional expensive components.
Torque magnification. Gearboxes provide mechanical advantage by not only decreasing speed but also increasing result torque.
