Able to handle larger “shock” loads (>500%) of rating in comparison to worm, helical, etc.
High reduction ratios and torque density in a concise dimensional footprint
Exceptional “built-in” overhung load carrying capability
High Cycloidal gearbox efficiency (>95%) per reduction stage
Minimal reflected inertia to electric motor for longer service life
Just ridiculously rugged as 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 reliable reducer in the industrial marketplace, and it is a perfect match for applications in large industry such as oil & gas, major and secondary metal processing, commercial food production, metal reducing and forming machinery, wastewater treatment, extrusion products, among others.
Cycloidal advantages over other 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 made up of an eccentric roller bearing that drives a wheel around a set of internal pins, keeping the decrease high and the rotational inertia low. The wheel incorporates a curved tooth profile instead of the more traditional involute tooth profile, which gets rid of shear forces at any stage of contact. This style introduces compression forces, instead of those shear forces that could exist with an involute equipment mesh. That provides several efficiency benefits such as for example high shock load capability (>500% of ranking), minimal friction and wear, lower mechanical service elements, among numerous others. The cycloidal style also has a large output shaft bearing span, which gives exceptional overhung load features without requiring any additional expensive components.
Torque magnification. Gearboxes provide mechanical advantage by not only decreasing rate but also increasing result torque.
