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 as all get-out
The overall EP design proves to be extremely durable, and it requires minimal maintenance following installation. The EP may be the most dependable reducer in the industrial marketplace, and it is a perfect suit for applications in heavy industry such as for example oil & gas, principal and secondary steel processing, commercial food production, metal cutting and forming machinery, wastewater treatment, extrusion apparatus, among others.
Cycloidal advantages over various other styles of gearing;
The EP 3000 and our related products that utilize 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 set of internal 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 style introduces compression forces, rather than those shear forces that could can be found with an involute equipment mesh. That provides Cycloidal gearbox numerous functionality benefits such as for example high shock load capacity (>500% of ranking), minimal friction and use, lower mechanical service factors, among numerous others. The cycloidal style also has a sizable output shaft bearing span, which gives exceptional overhung load capabilities without requiring any additional expensive components.
Torque magnification. Gearboxes offer mechanical advantage by not merely decreasing speed but also increasing result torque.
