Able to handle larger “shock” loads (>500%) of rating compared to worm, helical, etc.
High reduction Cycloidal gearbox 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 motor for longer service life
Just ridiculously rugged because 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 reliable reducer in the commercial marketplace, and it is a perfect fit for applications in heavy industry such as oil & gas, primary and secondary metal processing, commercial food production, metal reducing and forming machinery, wastewater treatment, extrusion tools, among others.
Cycloidal advantages over various other styles of gearing;
The EP 3000 and our related products that use 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 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 stage of contact. This design introduces compression forces, rather than those shear forces that would can be found with an involute equipment mesh. That provides several performance benefits such as for example high shock load capacity (>500% of ranking), minimal friction and wear, lower mechanical service factors, among many others. The cycloidal design also has a huge output shaft bearing period, which provides exceptional overhung load capabilities without requiring any additional expensive components.
Torque magnification. Gearboxes provide mechanical advantage by not only decreasing quickness but also increasing result torque.
