Cycloidal gearbox

Capable of Cycloidal gearbox 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 because all get-out
The overall EP design proves to be extremely durable, and it needs minimal maintenance following installation. The EP is the most dependable reducer in the commercial marketplace, and it is a perfect suit for applications in heavy industry such as for example oil & gas, primary and secondary metal processing, commercial food production, metal reducing and forming machinery, wastewater treatment, extrusion equipment, among others.

Cycloidal advantages over additional styles of gearing;

The EP 3000 and our related products that make use of cycloidal gearing technology deliver the most robust solution in the most compact footprint. The main power train is made up of an eccentric roller bearing that drives a wheel around a couple of internal pins, keeping the decrease high and the rotational inertia low. The wheel includes a curved tooth profile rather than the more traditional involute tooth profile, which eliminates shear forces at any point of contact. This design introduces compression forces, instead of those shear forces that could exist with an involute gear mesh. That provides numerous efficiency benefits such as for example high shock load capacity (>500% of ranking), minimal friction and wear, lower mechanical service factors, among numerous others. The cycloidal design also has a big output shaft bearing period, which provides exceptional overhung load capabilities without requiring any extra expensive components.

Torque magnification. Gearboxes offer mechanical advantage by not only decreasing velocity but also increasing output torque.
