Correct angle gearboxes (worm and planetary) are tough and built for 90° turns. Inline reducers (parallel shaft and planetary) are a perfect match for motors with high insight speeds, or when gearmotor effectiveness is important. Contact our technical sales personnel for help determining which gearbox option is most beneficial for you.
RIGHT ANGLE REDUCERS
WORM GEAR REDUCER
EP’s worm equipment reducers were created with a hollow bore and allow for a corner convert with optional dual output. The reducers come in 12 ratios which range from 5:1 to 100:1, with non-back-drivable ratios 30:1 and higher. Our correct angle gearboxes are designed with five mounting choices providing versatility when incorporating the reducer into product.
RIGHT ANGLE BEVEL GEARBOX
The right angle bevel gearbox combines the top features of our correct angle worm and planetary inline reducers. With a good and efficient right 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 little planetary gearbox configurations supply the smallest footprint and quietest operation of our quickness reducers. These gearboxes are created to deal with varying loads with little backlash. With frame sizes 52cm, 62cm, and 81cm, 12 ratios which range from 5:1 to 308:1, we’ve a solution to fit your needs. Our 52 frame size can be available with plastic material gears for noise-delicate applications.
INLINE PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our inline planetary gearbox configurations supply the highest efficiency and best output torque of all our acceleration reducers. These gearboxes are created to deal with varying loads with little backlash. Planetary equipment reducers operate more quietly than parallel shaft reducers. With 18 ratio choices ranging from 5:1 to 1000:1, we’ve a solution to suit your needs.
PARALLEL SHAFT GEARBOX
Parallel shaft gearboxes are the top choice for continuous duty applications. Their gear cluster design provides an effective method for dissipating warmth. Parallel shaft gearboxes possess the shortest amount of our inline equipment reducer options therefore they work very well in conditions with limited space. Our parallel shaft gear reducers provide an affordable drop-in replacement solution for most small parallel shaft gearmotors.
Wormwheel gearboxes pass several names, including 90-degree gearboxes, right position gearboxes, swiftness reducers, worm gear reducers and worm drive gearboxes. Gear reduction boxes feature a gear arrangement in which a gear in the form of a screw, also called 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 gear, the worm gearboxes are considerably smaller than other equipment reduction boxes. A primary benefit of worm equipment reducers is that they generate an output that’s 90° from the input and can be used to transmit higher torque or reduce rotational speed. Most often, a worm gearbox offers right hand threads; to change the path of the output, a left-hands thread worm gearbox is necessary.
