Capable of handling larger “shock” loads (>500%) of rating in comparison to worm, helical, etc.
High reduction ratios and torque density in a compact dimensional footprint
Exceptional “built-in” overhung load carrying capability
High efficiency (>95%) per reduction stage
Minimal reflected inertia to engine 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 dependable reducer in the commercial marketplace, in fact it is a perfect match for applications in large industry such as oil & gas, principal and secondary steel processing, industrial food production, metal cutting and forming machinery, wastewater treatment, extrusion equipment, among others.
Cycloidal advantages over additional 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 primary power train is comprised of an eccentric roller bearing that drives a wheel around a set of internal pins, keeping the reduction high and the rotational inertia low. The wheel includes a curved tooth profile instead of the more traditional involute tooth profile, which removes shear forces at any stage of contact. This design introduces compression forces, rather than those shear forces that could can be found with an involute gear mesh. That provides numerous efficiency benefits such as for example high shock load capability (>500% of rating), minimal friction and use, lower Cycloidal gearbox mechanical service factors, among numerous others. The cycloidal style also has a large output shaft bearing period, which gives exceptional overhung load capabilities without requiring any extra expensive components.
Torque magnification. Gearboxes offer mechanical advantage by not merely decreasing speed but also increasing output torque.
