Correct angle gearboxes (worm and planetary) are durable and built for 90° turns. Inline reducers (parallel shaft and planetary) are an ideal match for motors with high insight speeds, or when gearmotor performance is important. Contact our technical sales personnel for help determining which gearbox remedy is best for you.
RIGHT ANGLE REDUCERS
WORM GEAR REDUCER
EP’s worm equipment reducers were created with a hollow bore and invite for a corner turn with optional dual result. 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 correct angle gearboxes are designed with five mounting options 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 solid and efficient correct 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, and it is back-drivable at all ratios.
I-SERIES PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our I-Series little planetary gearbox configurations provide the smallest footprint and quietest procedure of our acceleration reducers. These gearboxes are designed to handle varying loads with small backlash. With frame sizes 52cm, 62cm, and 81cm, 12 ratios ranging from 5:1 to 308:1, we’ve a solution to suit your needs. Our 52 frame size is also available with plastic material gears for noise-delicate applications.
INLINE PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our inline planetary gearbox configurations supply the highest effectiveness and best result torque of most our rate reducers. These gearboxes are created to manage varying loads with small backlash. Planetary gear reducers operate more quietly than parallel shaft reducers. With 18 ratio choices ranging from 5:1 to 1000:1, we have a solution to fit your needs.
PARALLEL SHAFT GEARBOX
Parallel shaft gearboxes will be the top choice for constant duty applications. Their gear cluster design provides a highly effective method for dissipating high temperature. Parallel shaft gearboxes possess the shortest amount 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 replacement solution for most little parallel shaft gearmotors.
Wormwheel gearboxes pass several names, including 90-degree gearboxes, right angle gearboxes, acceleration reducers, worm equipment reducers and worm drive gearboxes. Gear reduction boxes include a gear arrangement when a gear in the type of a screw, also called a worm, meshes with a worm equipment. These gears are typically made from bronze and the worms are metal or stainless steel.
While worm gears act like a spur gear, the worm gearboxes are significantly smaller than other equipment reduction boxes. A main benefit of worm equipment reducers is usually that they generate an output that is 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 improve the direction of the result, a left-hands thread worm gearbox is necessary.
