Able to handle 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 electric motor for longer service life
Just ridiculously rugged since all get-out
The overall EP design proves to be extremely durable, and it needs minimal maintenance following installation. The EP may be the most dependable reducer in the commercial marketplace, and it is a perfect suit for applications in heavy industry such as oil & gas, primary and secondary steel processing, industrial food production, metal trimming and forming machinery, wastewater treatment, extrusion gear, among others.
Cycloidal advantages over additional 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 main power train is comprised of an eccentric roller bearing that drives a wheel around a couple of internal pins, keeping the reduction 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 stage of contact. This style introduces compression forces, instead of those shear forces that could can be found with an involute equipment mesh. That provides a number of performance benefits such as for example high shock load capacity (>500% of ranking), minimal friction and put on, lower mechanical service factors, among numerous others. The cycloidal style also has a big output shaft bearing period, which gives exceptional overhung load capabilities without Cycloidal gearbox requiring any additional expensive components.
Torque magnification. Gearboxes offer mechanical advantage by not merely decreasing acceleration but also increasing output torque.
