Cycloidal gearbox

Capable of handling larger “shock” loads (>500%) of rating compared 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 motor for longer service life
Just ridiculously rugged because all get-out
The entire EP Cycloidal gearbox design proves to be extremely durable, and it requires minimal maintenance following installation. The EP may be the most dependable reducer in the industrial marketplace, and it is a perfect fit for applications in weighty industry such as for example oil & gas, principal and secondary metal processing, commercial food production, metal slicing and forming machinery, wastewater treatment, extrusion equipment, 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 primary power train is comprised of an eccentric roller bearing that drives a wheel around a set of inner 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 style introduces compression forces, rather than those shear forces that would can be found with an involute equipment mesh. That provides a number of efficiency benefits such as high shock load capacity (>500% of rating), minimal friction and wear, lower mechanical service factors, among numerous others. The cycloidal design also has a large output shaft bearing span, which provides exceptional overhung load capabilities without requiring any extra expensive components.

Torque magnification. Gearboxes offer mechanical advantage by not merely decreasing acceleration but also increasing output torque.
