Able to handle larger “shock” loads (>500%) of rating compared to worm, helical, etc.
High reduction ratios and torque density in a concise dimensional footprint
Cycloidal gearbox 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 as all get-out
The overall EP design proves to be extremely durable, and it requires minimal maintenance following installation. The EP is the most dependable reducer in the commercial marketplace, and it is a perfect fit for applications in heavy industry such as oil & gas, principal and secondary metal processing, industrial food production, metal trimming 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 primary power train is comprised of an eccentric roller bearing that drives a wheel around a set of internal pins, keeping the decrease high and the rotational inertia low. The wheel incorporates a curved tooth profile rather than the more traditional involute tooth profile, which gets rid of shear forces at any point of contact. This style introduces compression forces, rather than those shear forces that would exist with an involute equipment mesh. That provides numerous performance benefits such as for example high shock load capacity (>500% of rating), minimal friction and put on, lower mechanical service factors, among numerous others. The cycloidal design also has a big output shaft bearing period, which provides exceptional overhung load features without requiring any extra expensive components.
Torque magnification. Gearboxes offer mechanical advantage by not merely decreasing quickness but also increasing output torque.
