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 efficiency (>95%) per reduction stage
Minimal reflected inertia to electric motor for longer service life
Just ridiculously rugged because all get-out
The overall EP design proves to be Cycloidal gearbox extremely durable, and it needs minimal maintenance following installation. The EP may be the most dependable reducer in the commercial marketplace, in fact it is a perfect fit for applications in large industry such as for example oil & gas, main and secondary steel processing, industrial food production, metal slicing and forming machinery, wastewater treatment, extrusion gear, 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 comprised of an eccentric roller bearing that drives a wheel around a couple of internal pins, keeping the decrease high and the rotational inertia low. The wheel includes a curved tooth profile instead of the more traditional involute tooth profile, which eliminates shear forces at any stage of contact. This design introduces compression forces, rather than those shear forces that would can be found with an involute equipment mesh. That provides numerous functionality benefits such as high shock load capability (>500% of rating), minimal friction and wear, lower mechanical service elements, among many others. The cycloidal style also has a big 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 acceleration but also increasing result torque.
