Correct angle gearboxes (worm and planetary) are tough and built for 90° turns. Inline reducers (parallel shaft and planetary) are an ideal match for motors with high insight speeds, or when gearmotor efficiency is important. Get in touch with our technical sales personnel for help determining which gearbox solution is best for you.
RIGHT ANGLE REDUCERS
WORM GEAR REDUCER
EP’s worm equipment reducers are designed with a hollow bore and allow for a corner switch with optional dual output. The reducers can be found in 12 ratios which range from 5:1 to 100:1, with non-back-drivable ratios 30:1 and higher. Our correct angle gearboxes were created with five mounting choices providing flexibility when incorporating the reducer into item.
RIGHT ANGLE BEVEL GEARBOX
The proper angle bevel gearbox combines the top features of our right angle worm and planetary inline reducers. With a good and efficient correct angle configuration, our correct angle planetary gearboxes offer a robust solution. The proper angle bevel gearbox will come in 18 ratios which range from 5:1 to 1000:1, in fact it is back-drivable at all ratios.
I-SERIES PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our I-Series small planetary gearbox configurations provide the smallest footprint and quietest operation of our rate reducers. These gearboxes are made to handle varying loads with little backlash. With frame sizes 52cm, 62cm, and 81cm, 12 ratios which range from 5:1 to 308:1, we have a solution to fit your needs. Our 52 frame size is also available with plastic material gears for noise-sensitive applications.
INLINE PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our inline planetary gearbox configurations provide the highest performance and best output torque of most our acceleration reducers. These gearboxes are designed to handle varying loads with small backlash. Planetary gear reducers operate more quietly than parallel shaft reducers. With 18 ratio options which range from 5:1 to 1000:1, we’ve a solution to fit your needs.
PARALLEL SHAFT GEARBOX
Parallel shaft gearboxes are the top choice for constant duty applications. Their gear cluster design provides a highly effective method for dissipating high temperature. Parallel shaft gearboxes have the shortest length of our inline gear reducer options so they work well in conditions with limited space. Our parallel shaft gear reducers provide an affordable drop-in replacement solution for most little parallel shaft gearmotors.
Wormwheel gearboxes pass several names, including 90-degree gearboxes, right angle gearboxes, rate reducers, worm equipment reducers and worm drive gearboxes. Gear decrease boxes include a gear arrangement when a gear in the type of a screw, also referred to as a worm, meshes with a worm equipment. These gears are usually made from bronze and the worms are steel or stainless steel.
While worm gears act like a spur equipment, the worm gearboxes are significantly smaller than other equipment reduction boxes. A principal benefit of worm gear reducers is certainly that they create an output that’s 90° from the insight and can be utilized to transmit higher torque or decrease rotational speed. Most often, a worm gearbox offers right hand threads; to improve the direction of the output, a left-hand thread worm gearbox is necessary.
