The 700 Series’ large oil reservoir provides efficient heat dissipation and lubrication for much longer operating life.
Its multi-position mounting versatility permits installation in practically any position.
Housings are straddle-milled, top and bottom level, for precise alignment of horizontal and vertical bases.
Internal baffles assure positive, leak-free venting.
The 700 Series’ rugged casing, fabricated of fine-grained, gear-quality cast iron, provides maximum strength for optimum durability, in addition to greater precision during worm and gear alignment.
EP Gear’s 700 Series high-strength bronze worm gear is straddle mounted between heavy-duty tapered roller bearings to increase thrust and overhung load capacities, sizes 713-760.
Our 700 Series’ high-strength steel output shaft assures convenience of great torque and overhung loads.
Pipe plugs allow convenient fill up, level, and drain in any mounting position.
The 700 Series’ super-finished oil-seal diameters on both input and output shafts extend seal existence.
Both 2D and 3D CAD drawings are available in our eCatalog.
Correct angle gearboxes (worm and planetary) are rugged and built for 90° turns. Inline reducers (parallel shaft and planetary) will be an ideal match for motors with excessive insight speeds, or when gearmotor performance is important. Get in touch with our technical sales staff for help identifying which gearbox answer is most beneficial for you.
RIGHT ANGLE REDUCERS
WORM GEAR REDUCER
EP’s worm equipment reducers were created with a hollow bore and allow for a corner convert with optional dual result. 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 were created with five mounting choices providing flexibility when incorporating the reducer into item.
RIGHT ANGLE BEVEL GEARBOX
The right angle bevel gearbox combines the features of our correct angle worm and planetary inline reducers. With a solid and efficient correct angle configuration, our right angle planetary gearboxes 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 little planetary gearbox configurations supply the smallest footprint and quietest operation of our swiftness reducers. These gearboxes are designed to manage varying loads with little 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 material gears for noise-delicate applications.
INLINE PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our inline planetary gearbox configurations supply the highest efficiency and best output torque of most our velocity reducers. These gearboxes are made to manage varying loads with little backlash. Planetary equipment reducers operate more quietly than parallel shaft reducers. With 18 ratio options ranging from 5:1 to 1000:1, we have a solution to suit your needs.
PARALLEL SHAFT GEARBOX
Parallel shaft gearboxes will be the top decision for continuous duty applications. Their equipment cluster design provides a highly effective approach for dissipating heat. Parallel shaft gearboxes have the shortest amount of our inline gear reducer options therefore they work very well in environments with limited space. Our parallel shaft equipment reducers offer an affordable drop-in replacement solution for most little parallel shaft gearmotors.
Wormwheel gearboxes pass several names, including 90-degree gearboxes, right angle gearboxes, rate reducers, worm equipment reducers and worm drive gearboxes. Gear decrease boxes include a gear arrangement in which a equipment in the type of a screw, also known as a worm, meshes with a worm equipment. These gears are typically created from bronze and the worms happen to be steel or stainless steel.
While worm gears act like a spur gear, the worm gearboxes are considerably smaller than other gear reduction boxes. A primary benefit of worm equipment reducers is that they create an output that is 90° from the input and can be utilized to transmit bigger torque or reduce rotational speed. Frequently, a worm gearbox offers right palm threads; to improve the path of the output, a left-hand thread worm gearbox is required.
