Correct angle gearboxes (worm and planetary) are durable and built for 90° turns. Inline reducers (parallel shaft and planetary) will be an ideal match for motors with huge insight speeds, or when gearmotor efficiency is important. Get in touch with our technical sales personnel for help identifying which gearbox choice is most beneficial for you.
RIGHT ANGLE REDUCERS
WORM GEAR REDUCER
EP’s worm equipment reducers were created with a hollow bore and invite for a corner switch with optional dual result. The reducers come in 12 ratios ranging from 5:1 to 100:1, with non-back-drivable ratios 30:1 and higher. Our correct angle gearboxes are designed with five mounting options providing versatility when incorporating the reducer into product.
RIGHT ANGLE BEVEL GEARBOX
The proper angle bevel gearbox combines the features of our right angle worm and planetary inline reducers. With a good and efficient correct angle configuration, our correct angle planetary gearboxes provide a robust solution. The proper angle bevel gearbox will come in 18 ratios ranging from 5:1 to 1000:1, in fact it is back-drivable at all ratios.
I-SERIES PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our I-Series small planetary gearbox configurations provide the smallest footprint and quietest operation of our rate reducers. These gearboxes are made to deal with varying loads with little backlash. With frame sizes 52cm, 62cm, and 81cm, 12 ratios ranging from 5:1 to 308:1, we’ve a solution to fit your needs. Our 52 frame size is also available with plastic material gears for noise-delicate applications.
INLINE PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our inline planetary gearbox configurations provide the highest effectiveness and best output torque of all our swiftness reducers. These gearboxes are created to deal with varying loads with small backlash. Planetary equipment reducers operate even more quietly than parallel shaft reducers. With 18 ratio choices which range from 5:1 to 1000:1, we have a solution to suit your needs.
PARALLEL SHAFT GEARBOX
Parallel shaft gearboxes will be the top decision for constant duty applications. Their equipment cluster design provides a highly effective method for dissipating temperature. Parallel shaft gearboxes have the shortest length of our inline equipment reducer options therefore they work well in conditions with limited space. Our parallel shaft equipment reducers provide an affordable drop-in replacement solution for most little parallel shaft gearmotors.
Wormwheel gearboxes pass several names, including 90-degree gearboxes, right position gearboxes, rate reducers, worm equipment reducers and worm drive gearboxes. Gear reduction boxes include a gear arrangement when a equipment in the type of a screw, also referred to as a worm, meshes with a worm gear. These gears are usually created from bronze and the worms happen to be steel or stainless steel.
While worm gears are similar to a spur equipment, the worm gearboxes are considerably smaller than other gear reduction boxes. A main benefit of worm gear reducers is definitely that they generate an output that is 90° from the input and can be used to transmit larger torque or decrease rotational speed. Frequently, a worm gearbox offers right hands threads; to change the direction of the output, a left-hands thread worm gearbox is required.
