Cycloidal gearbox

Capable of handling larger “shock” loads (>500%) of rating compared to worm, helical, etc.
High reduction ratios and torque density in a concise 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 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 industrial marketplace, and it is a perfect match for applications in weighty industry such as oil & gas, primary and secondary metal processing, industrial food production, metal reducing and forming machinery, wastewater treatment, extrusion products, among others.

Cycloidal advantages over other styles of gearing;

The EP 3000 and our related Cycloidal gearbox products that use cycloidal gearing technology deliver the most robust solution in the most 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 rather than the more traditional involute tooth profile, which removes shear forces at any point of contact. This style introduces compression forces, rather than those shear forces that would can be found with an involute gear mesh. That provides several overall performance benefits such as for example high shock load capacity (>500% of rating), minimal friction and wear, lower mechanical service elements, among many others. The cycloidal design also has a sizable output shaft bearing span, which provides exceptional overhung load capabilities without requiring any additional expensive components.

Torque magnification. Gearboxes provide mechanical advantage by not only decreasing quickness but also increasing output torque.
