Able to handle larger “shock” loads (>500%) of rating in comparison 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 Cycloidal gearbox inertia to motor for longer service life
Just ridiculously rugged since 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 fit for applications in large industry such as for example oil & gas, main and secondary metal processing, commercial food production, metal trimming and forming machinery, wastewater treatment, extrusion devices, among others.
Cycloidal advantages over 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 comprised of an eccentric roller bearing that drives a wheel around a couple of inner pins, keeping the reduction high and the rotational inertia low. The wheel incorporates a curved tooth profile rather than the more traditional involute tooth profile, which removes shear forces at any point of contact. This design introduces compression forces, instead of those shear forces that could can be found with an involute equipment mesh. That provides several performance benefits such as high shock load capability (>500% of ranking), minimal friction and put on, lower mechanical service elements, among numerous others. The cycloidal style also has a sizable output shaft bearing span, which gives exceptional overhung load capabilities without requiring any extra expensive components.
Torque magnification. Gearboxes provide mechanical advantage by not merely decreasing acceleration but also increasing result torque.
