Product Features
The 700 Series’ large oil reservoir provides efficient heat dissipation and lubrication for longer operating existence.
Its multi-position mounting flexibility allows for installation in practically any position.
Housings are straddle-milled, best and bottom, for precise alignment of horizontal and vertical bases.
Internal baffles assure positive, leak-free venting.
The 700 Series’ rugged casing, fabricated of fine-grained, gear-quality cast iron, provides maximum strength for optimum durability, as well as greater precision during worm and gear alignment.
EP Gear’s 700 Series high-strength bronze worm gear is straddle mounted between heavy-duty tapered roller bearings to improve thrust and overhung load capacities, sizes 713-760.
Our 700 Series’ high-strength steel output shaft assures capacity for high torque and overhung loads.
Pipe plugs allow easy fill, level, and drain in virtually any mounting position.
The 700 Series’ super-finished oil-seal diameters on both input and output shafts extend seal existence.

GEARBOX REDUCERS
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 insight speeds, or when gearmotor efficiency is important. Get in touch with our technical sales personnel for help identifying which gearbox alternative is best for you.
RIGHT ANGLE REDUCERS
WORM GEAR REDUCER
EP’s worm equipment reducers are designed with a hollow bore and invite for a corner turn with optional dual result. 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 right angle gearboxes are designed with five mounting choices providing versatility when incorporating the reducer into item.
RIGHT ANGLE BEVEL GEARBOX
bevel-right-angle-gearbox
The proper angle bevel gearbox combines the top features of our right angle worm and planetary inline reducers. With a solid 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, in fact it is back-drivable at all ratios.
INLINE REDUCERS
I-SERIES PLANETARY GEARBOX
i-series-planetary-gearbox
Our I-Series little planetary gearbox configurations provide the smallest footprint and quietest procedure of our velocity reducers. These gearboxes are created to deal with varying loads with small backlash. With frame sizes 52cm, 62cm, and 81cm, 12 ratios which range from 5:1 to 308:1, we’ve a solution to suit your needs. Our 52 frame size is also available with plastic-type material gears for noise-delicate applications.
INLINE PLANETARY GEARBOX
inline-planetary-gearbox
Our inline planetary gearbox configurations supply the highest efficiency and best result torque of all our rate reducers. These gearboxes are created to manage varying loads with small backlash. Planetary gear 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-gearbox
Parallel shaft gearboxes will be the best choice for constant duty applications. Their gear cluster design provides a highly effective method for dissipating warmth. Parallel shaft gearboxes have the shortest length of our inline equipment reducer options therefore they work very well in environments with limited space. Our parallel shaft gear reducers provide an affordable drop-in substitute solution for most little parallel shaft gearmotors.
Wormwheel gearboxes go by several names, including 90-degree gearboxes, right angle gearboxes, swiftness reducers, worm gear reducers and worm drive gearboxes. Gear decrease boxes feature a gear arrangement in which a equipment in the form of a screw, also known as a worm, meshes with a worm gear. These gears are typically created from bronze and the worms are metal or stainless steel.

While worm gears act like a spur gear, the worm gearboxes are considerably smaller than other equipment reduction boxes. A principal benefit of worm gear reducers is that they generate an output that is 90° from the insight and can be utilized to transmit higher torque or reduce rotational speed. Frequently, a worm gearbox provides right hand threads; to change the path of the result, a left-hand thread worm gearbox is required.
