Correct angle gearboxes (worm and planetary) are rugged and built for 90° turns. Inline reducers (parallel shaft and planetary) are a perfect match for motors with high input speeds, or when gearmotor efficiency is important. Get in touch with our technical sales personnel for help identifying which gearbox solution is best for you.
RIGHT ANGLE REDUCERS
WORM GEAR REDUCER
EP’s worm gear reducers were created with a hollow bore and allow for a corner change 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 choices providing versatility when incorporating the reducer into item.
RIGHT ANGLE BEVEL GEARBOX
The proper angle bevel gearbox combines the features of our right angle worm and planetary inline reducers. With a solid and efficient right angle configuration, our right angle planetary gearboxes offer a robust solution. The proper angle bevel gearbox will come in 18 ratios which range 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 quickness reducers. These gearboxes are made to manage varying loads with small backlash. With framework sizes 52cm, 62cm, and 81cm, 12 ratios which range from 5:1 to 308:1, we’ve a solution to fit your needs. Our 52 frame size is also available with plastic-type gears for noise-sensitive applications.
INLINE PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our inline planetary gearbox configurations provide the highest performance and best output torque of all our swiftness reducers. These gearboxes are made to deal with varying loads with little backlash. Planetary gear reducers operate more quietly than parallel shaft reducers. With 18 ratio choices ranging from 5:1 to 1000:1, we’ve a solution to suit your needs.
PARALLEL SHAFT GEARBOX
Parallel shaft gearboxes will be the best choice for continuous duty applications. Their equipment cluster design provides an effective method for dissipating heat. Parallel shaft gearboxes possess the shortest length of our inline equipment reducer options therefore they work well in conditions with limited space. Our parallel shaft gear reducers offer an affordable drop-in alternative solution for most small parallel shaft gearmotors.
Wormwheel gearboxes go by several names, including 90-degree gearboxes, right position gearboxes, speed reducers, worm gear reducers and worm drive gearboxes. Gear reduction boxes feature a gear arrangement when a equipment in the form of a screw, also referred to as a worm, meshes with a worm gear. These gears are usually created from bronze and the worms are metal or stainless steel.
While worm gears are similar to a spur equipment, the worm gearboxes are considerably smaller than other equipment reduction boxes. A principal benefit of worm gear reducers is certainly that they create an output that’s 90° from the insight and can be used to transmit higher torque or decrease rotational speed. Frequently, a worm gearbox has right hand threads; to improve the path of the output, a left-hand thread worm gearbox is necessary.
