FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Ever-Power develops and manufactures cycloidal gear boxes to round off the product portfolio. In drive technology, especially in the field of device machinery, automation and robotics, these small designed, high transmitting precision gear boxes are used especially to meet the highest demands for stiffness, overall performance and efficiency. In addition to the constantly extended standard range, these cycloidal precision gear boxes could be adapted to consumer requirements upon request.
Capable of handling 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 since all get-out
The entire Ever-Power design proves to be extremely durable, and it needs minimal maintenance following installation. The Ever-Power may be the most reliable reducer in the industrial marketplace, in fact it is a perfect suit for applications in large industry such as oil & gas, primary and secondary steel processing, commercial food production, metal trimming 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 use cycloidal gearing technology deliver the many robust solution in the the majority of compact footprint. The main power train is made up of an eccentric roller bearing that drives a wheel around a couple 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, instead of those shear forces that could can be found with an involute gear mesh. That provides several functionality benefits such as for example high shock load capability (>500% of rating), minimal friction and put on, lower mechanical service elements, among many others. The cycloidal design also has a sizable output shaft bearing span, which gives exceptional overhung load capabilities without requiring any extra expensive components.
A cycloidal drive has some similarities to both planetary gearing and strain-wave gears. In the picture shown, the green shaft is the input and its own rotation causes an eccentric movement in the yellow cycloidal disk. The cycloidal disk is definitely geared to a stationary outer ring, represented in the computer animation by the outer band of grey segments. Its movement is transferred to the purple result shaft via cycloidal gearbox rollers or pins that interface to the holes in the disk. Like planetary gearing, the result shaft rotates in the opposite direction to the insight shaft. Because the individual parts are well-suitable to 3D printing, this opens the door to easily prototyping customized designs and gearing ratios.
