“EP series” inline helical gear reducers include a HP range of ¼-100 HP, 37-147 mm box sizes, 2:1-120:1 speed ratios and a cast iron casing for unquestioned strength and reliability. Offered in a number of NEMA C-face quill style motor input flange configurations, the “EP” series allows users to quickly locate off-the-shelf NEMA motors in lieu of custom gear motors with special first pinion gears. EP’s bolt hole pattern, base to center line elevation, result shaft diameter and usable shaft duration match the “R” group of the inline market head making plant retrofitting a breeze.

The precision planetary gear units of the EP series with floor helical gearing and preloaded double taper roller bearings ensure low-noise synchronism because of their immense load having capacity and rigidity even under high load conditions. The one-piece world carrier and the included needle roller bearings enable the transmission of high torques. The excess shaft sealing band ensures maximum safety against dust and splash water relative to protection class IP65.

EP Gear’s 800 Series contains a focused selection of compact, heavy duty helical equipment drives that provide long-lifestyle performance and simplified maintenance. A broad selection of reduction ratios fit an even broader range of specifications, while a number of insight shaft configurations maximize flexibility. In addition, the amount of products that enhance this series of equipment drives make it an ideal choice for today’s commercial distributor.
The 800 Series provides a functional interchange for ep and other European manufacturers’ helical gear drives,making it uniquely practical for substitute applications.
Four basic sizes 1/6 – 10 HP
Over 40 different ratios 1.5:1 – 71:1 double-reduction ratios 36:1 – 250:1 triple-reduction ratios
Non-flanged and NEMA c-face input styles
Base-mount and output flange-mount models available
Output-shaft diameters from 3/4″ to 1 1 5/8″
The typical NEMA C-face design will accept any standard NEMA engine, making it exceptionally versatile.
Ratios up to 70:1 in just two levels means increased performance and reduced case size.
Accessible oil seals simplify program product maintenance.
All units could be double sealed on both input and output to withstand the rigors of also the most demanding applications.
800 Series drives come pre-filled with synthetic lubrication for your specific mounting position.
Sizes 3 and 4 are lubricated for life which promotes trouble-free operation.
Washdown duty systems in white-colored or stainless steel epoxy coatings make these gear drives perfect for the most severe Washdown.
Right angle bevel speed reducers decrease speed and increase torque from the driver end to the driven result in a drive system. They possess a beveled gear which allows the reducer to rotate in both directions and operate with low noise and vibration. They are typically crafted from durable, corrosion-resistant components like stainless steel.
Wide variety of accessories and non-standard designs
Single piece casing with high structural stiffness
Easy and functional shaft-mounting design
Minimum maintenance requirements
High, reliable and tested performance
Suitable for the heaviest duties

The exclusive usage of the involute helicoid thread form on the worm and gear provides for high efficiencies and long service life on draglines and shovels. The hardened,ground and polished alloy steel worm develops a smooth, work hardened surface area on the bronze gear. Because of this, the worm gears wear in and improve with extented service while other gears are wearing out.
Hardened, shaved or ground helical gears
Hollow & solid output shafts
Vertical & horizontal mountings
Fan cooled (standard)
Motor mounts
Cast iron or steel housings available
