Right angle gearboxes (worm and planetary) are rugged and built for 90° turns. Inline reducers (parallel shaft and planetary) are an ideal meet for motors with large input speeds, or when gearmotor performance is important. Contact our technical sales staff for help determining which gearbox solution is most beneficial 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 result. 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 options providing flexibility when incorporating the reducer into item.
RIGHT ANGLE BEVEL GEARBOX
The proper angle bevel gearbox combines the features of our right angle worm and planetary inline reducers. With a good and efficient right angle configuration, our right angle planetary gearboxes provide a robust solution. The proper angle bevel gearbox will come in 18 ratios which range from 5:1 to 1000:1, and it is back-drivable at all ratios.
I-SERIES PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our I-Series little planetary gearbox configurations supply the smallest footprint and quietest procedure of our quickness reducers. These gearboxes are created to manage varying loads with small backlash. With frame sizes 52cm, 62cm, and 81cm, 12 ratios ranging from 5:1 to 308:1, we’ve a solution to suit your needs. Our 52 frame size is also available with plastic gears for noise-sensitive applications.
INLINE PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our inline planetary gearbox configurations provide the highest efficiency and best output torque of all our quickness reducers. These gearboxes are designed to manage varying loads with small backlash. Planetary equipment reducers operate more quietly than parallel shaft reducers. With 18 ratio options ranging from 5:1 to 1000:1, we have a solution to suit your needs.
PARALLEL SHAFT GEARBOX
Parallel shaft gearboxes will be the top decision for continuous duty applications. Their gear cluster design provides an effective technique for dissipating heat. Parallel shaft gearboxes have the shortest length of our inline equipment reducer options so they work well in environments with limited space. Our parallel shaft equipment reducers provide an affordable drop-in substitute solution for most little parallel shaft gearmotors.
Wormwheel gearboxes go by several names, including 90-degree gearboxes, right position gearboxes, velocity reducers, worm gear reducers and worm drive gearboxes. Gear decrease boxes feature a gear arrangement in which a gear in the type of a screw, also called a worm, meshes with a worm equipment. These gears are typically created from bronze and the worms will be metal or stainless steel.
While worm gears act like a spur gear, the worm gearboxes are significantly smaller than other equipment reduction boxes. A major benefit of worm equipment reducers is usually that they produce an output that’s 90° from the insight and can be used to transmit bigger torque or decrease rotational speed. Most often, a worm gearbox provides right hands threads; to improve the path of the result, a left-hands thread worm gearbox is required.
