Able to handle larger “shock” loads (>500%) of rating compared to worm, helical, etc.
High reduction Cycloidal gearbox 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 motor for longer service life
Just ridiculously rugged because all get-out
The entire 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 match for applications in weighty industry such as oil & gas, primary and secondary steel processing, industrial food production, metal cutting and forming machinery, wastewater treatment, extrusion gear, among others.
Cycloidal advantages over other 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 primary power train is made up of an eccentric roller bearing that drives a wheel around a couple of inner pins, keeping the decrease 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 design introduces compression forces, rather than those shear forces that would can be found with an involute gear mesh. That provides numerous functionality benefits such as for example high shock load capability (>500% of rating), minimal friction and use, lower mechanical service elements, among many others. The cycloidal style also has a large output shaft bearing span, which provides exceptional overhung load capabilities without requiring any additional expensive components.
Torque magnification. Gearboxes provide mechanical advantage by not merely decreasing quickness but also increasing output torque.
