Able to handle larger “shock” loads (>500%) of rating in comparison to worm, helical, etc.
High reduction ratios and torque density in a compact dimensional footprint
Exceptional “built-in” overhung load carrying capability
High efficiency (>95%) per reduction stage
Minimal reflected inertia to engine for longer service life
Just ridiculously rugged as all get-out
The overall EP design proves to be extremely durable, and it requires minimal maintenance following installation. The EP may be the most dependable reducer in the commercial marketplace, in fact it is a perfect suit for applications in large industry such as for example oil & gas, primary and secondary steel processing, industrial food production, metal reducing and forming machinery, wastewater treatment, extrusion apparatus, among others.
Cycloidal advantages over other styles of gearing;
The EP 3000 and our related products that make use of cycloidal gearing technology deliver the most robust solution in the most compact footprint. The primary power train is made up of an eccentric roller bearing that drives a wheel around a couple of internal pins, keeping the reduction high and the rotational inertia low. The wheel incorporates a curved tooth profile instead of the more traditional involute tooth profile, which eliminates shear forces at any stage of contact. This style introduces compression forces, instead of those shear forces that would exist with an involute gear mesh. That provides a number of performance benefits such as high shock load capacity (>500% of rating), minimal friction and wear, lower mechanical service elements, among numerous others. The cycloidal design also has a big output shaft bearing period, which provides exceptional overhung load features without requiring any additional expensive components.
Torque magnification. Gearboxes offer mechanical advantage by not merely decreasing velocity but also Cycloidal gearbox increasing result torque.
