Right angle gearboxes (worm and planetary) are tough and built for 90° turns. Inline reducers (parallel shaft and planetary) are an ideal match for motors with high insight speeds, or when gearmotor performance is important. Contact our technical sales staff for help determining which gearbox alternative is most beneficial for you.
RIGHT ANGLE REDUCERS
WORM GEAR REDUCER
EP’s worm equipment reducers were created with a hollow bore and invite for a corner switch with optional dual output. The reducers can be found 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 correct angle worm and planetary inline reducers. With a solid and efficient correct angle configuration, our correct angle planetary gearboxes worm reduction gearbox provide a robust solution. The right 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 supply the smallest footprint and quietest procedure of our acceleration reducers. These gearboxes are designed to deal with varying loads with little backlash. With framework sizes 52cm, 62cm, and 81cm, 12 ratios which range from 5:1 to 308:1, we have a solution to suit your needs. Our 52 frame size can be available with plastic-type gears for noise-sensitive applications.
INLINE PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our inline planetary gearbox configurations supply the highest performance and best result torque of all our quickness 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 options which range from 5:1 to 1000:1, we’ve a solution to suit your needs.
PARALLEL SHAFT GEARBOX
Parallel shaft gearboxes are the top choice for constant duty applications. Their equipment cluster design provides a highly effective method for dissipating heat. Parallel shaft gearboxes possess the shortest amount of our inline gear reducer options therefore they work very well in environments with limited space. Our parallel shaft equipment reducers provide an affordable drop-in replacement solution for most small parallel shaft gearmotors.
Wormwheel gearboxes go by several names, including 90-degree gearboxes, right position gearboxes, swiftness reducers, worm equipment reducers and worm drive gearboxes. Gear reduction boxes include a gear arrangement when a gear in the form of a screw, also known as a worm, meshes with a worm equipment. These gears are typically 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 gear reduction boxes. A principal benefit of worm gear reducers is usually that they create an output that’s 90° from the input and can be utilized to transmit higher torque or decrease rotational speed. Most often, a worm gearbox offers right hand threads; to improve the direction of the result, a left-hand thread worm gearbox is necessary.
