The precision planetary gear units of the EP series with floor helical gearing and preloaded double taper roller bearings ensure low-noise synchronism because of their immense load having capacity and rigidity even under high load conditions. The one-piece world carrier and the included needle roller bearings enable the transmission of high torques. The excess shaft sealing band ensures maximum security against dust and splash water relative to protection class IP65.

EP Gear’s 800 Series contains a focused selection of compact, durable helical gear drives that offer long-life performance and simplified maintenance. A broad selection of reduction ratios fit a straight broader selection of specifications, while a number of insight shaft configurations maximize flexibility. In addition, the number of products that complement this series of gear drives make it a perfect choice for today’s commercial distributor.
The 800 Series offers a functional interchange for ep and other European manufacturers’ helical gear drives,making it uniquely practical for replacement applications.
Four basic sizes 1/6 – 10 HP
Over 40 different ratios 1.5:1 – 71:1 double-reduction ratios 36:1 – 250:1 triple-reduction ratios
Non-flanged and NEMA c-face input styles
Base-mount and output flange-mount models available
Output-shaft diameters from 3/4″ to 1 1 5/8″
The standard NEMA C-face design will accept any standard NEMA motor, which makes it exceptionally versatile.
Ratios up to 70:1 in just two levels means increased performance and reduced case size.
Accessible oil seals simplify program product maintenance.
All units could be double sealed on both input and output to withstand the rigors of actually the most demanding applications.
800 Series drives come pre-filled with synthetic lubrication for your unique mounting position.
Sizes 3 and 4 are lubricated for life which promotes trouble-free procedure.
Washdown duty units in white or stainless steel epoxy coatings make these gear drives perfect for the most severe Washdown.
Right angle bevel speed reducers decrease speed and increase torque from the driver end to the driven result in a drive system. They possess a beveled gear which allows the reducer to rotate in both directions and operate with low noise and vibration. They are typically made out of durable, corrosion-resistant materials like stainless steel.
Wide variety of accessories and non-standard designs
Single piece housing with high structural stiffness
Easy and functional shaft-mounting design
Minimum maintenance requirements
High, reliable and tested performance
Ideal for the heaviest duties

The exclusive usage of the involute helicoid thread form on the worm and gear provides for high efficiencies and long service life on draglines and shovels. The hardened,ground and polished alloy steel worm develops a smooth, work hardened surface on the bronze gear. Because of this, the worm gears wear in and improve with prolonged service while additional gears are wearing out.
Hardened, shaved or ground helical gears
Hollow & solid output shafts
Vertical & horizontal mountings
Fan cooled (standard)
Motor mounts
Cast iron or steel housings available
