FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Ever-Power develops and manufactures cycloidal equipment boxes to round off the product portfolio. In drive technology, especially in the field of tool machinery, automation and robotics, these compact designed, high tranny precision equipment boxes are used specifically to meet the highest demands for stiffness, efficiency and efficiency. As well as the constantly extended standard range, these cycloidal precision equipment boxes can be adapted to consumer requirements upon request.

Able to handle 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 as all get-out
The entire Ever-Power design proves to be extremely durable, and it requires minimal maintenance following installation. The Ever-Power may be the most dependable reducer in the industrial marketplace, in fact it is a perfect suit for applications in heavy industry such as for example oil & gas, main and secondary steel processing, commercial food production, metal reducing and forming machinery, wastewater treatment, extrusion products, among others.

Cycloidal advantages over various other styles of gearing;

The Ever-Power 3000 and our related products that utilize cycloidal cycloidal gearbox gearing technology deliver the many robust solution in the many compact footprint. The primary power train is made up of an eccentric roller bearing that drives a wheel around a couple of inner pins, keeping the decrease high and the rotational inertia low. The wheel incorporates a curved tooth profile rather than the more traditional involute tooth profile, which gets rid of shear forces at any point of contact. This design introduces compression forces, rather than those shear forces that would exist with an involute equipment mesh. That provides a number of efficiency benefits such as high shock load capacity (>500% of ranking), minimal friction and use, lower mechanical service elements, among numerous others. The cycloidal style also has a sizable output shaft bearing span, which gives exceptional overhung load capabilities without requiring any additional expensive components.

A cycloidal drive has some similarities to both planetary gearing and strain-wave gears. In the picture shown, the green shaft may be the input and its rotation causes an eccentric movement in the yellow cycloidal disk. The cycloidal disk is definitely targeted at a stationary outer ring, represented in the animation by the outer ring of grey segments. Its movement is used in the purple result shaft via rollers or pins that user interface to the holes in the disk. Like planetary gearing, the result shaft rotates in the contrary direction to the insight shaft. Because the individual parts are well-suitable to 3D printing, this opens the door to easily prototyping customized styles and gearing ratios.
