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 input speeds, or when gearmotor effectiveness is important. Get in touch with our technical sales personnel for help determining which gearbox remedy is best for you.
RIGHT ANGLE REDUCERS
WORM GEAR REDUCER
EP’s worm gear reducers were created with a hollow bore and invite for a corner change with optional dual output. The reducers can be found in 12 ratios ranging 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 item.
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 correct angle configuration, our right angle planetary gearboxes provide a robust solution. The right 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 small planetary gearbox configurations supply the smallest footprint and quietest operation of our speed reducers. These gearboxes are created to handle varying loads with little 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-type gears for noise-delicate applications.
INLINE PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our inline planetary gearbox configurations provide the worm reduction gearbox highest performance and best output torque of most our swiftness reducers. These gearboxes are designed to handle varying loads with little backlash. Planetary equipment reducers operate more quietly than parallel shaft reducers. With 18 ratio options ranging from 5:1 to 1000:1, we’ve a solution to fit your needs.
PARALLEL SHAFT GEARBOX
Parallel shaft gearboxes will be the best choice for constant duty applications. Their equipment cluster design provides a highly effective method for dissipating heat. Parallel shaft gearboxes possess the shortest amount of our inline equipment reducer options therefore they work very well in environments with limited space. Our parallel shaft equipment reducers provide an affordable drop-in alternative solution for most little parallel shaft gearmotors.
Wormwheel gearboxes pass several names, including 90-degree gearboxes, right position gearboxes, speed reducers, worm gear reducers and worm drive gearboxes. Gear reduction boxes feature a gear arrangement in which a gear in the kind of a screw, also known as a worm, meshes with a worm equipment. These gears are usually created from bronze and the worms are steel or stainless steel.
While worm gears are similar to a spur gear, the worm gearboxes are significantly smaller than other equipment reduction boxes. A principal benefit of worm equipment reducers is definitely that they produce an output that is 90° from the insight and can be used to transmit higher torque or reduce rotational speed. Frequently, a worm gearbox provides right hand threads; to change the direction of the output, a left-hands thread worm gearbox is required.
