Correct angle gearboxes (worm and planetary) are rugged and built for 90° turns. Inline reducers (parallel shaft and planetary) are a perfect match for motors with high insight speeds, or when gearmotor efficiency is important. Get in touch with our technical sales personnel for help determining which gearbox solution is most beneficial for you.
RIGHT ANGLE REDUCERS
WORM GEAR REDUCER
EP’s worm gear reducers were created with a hollow bore and invite for a corner turn 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 right angle gearboxes are designed with five mounting options providing versatility when incorporating the reducer into product.
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 right angle planetary gearboxes offer a robust solution. The right angle bevel gearbox comes in 18 ratios ranging 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 provide the smallest footprint and quietest operation of our rate reducers. These gearboxes are made to deal with varying loads with small backlash. With framework sizes 52cm, 62cm, and 81cm, 12 ratios ranging from 5:1 to 308:1, we have a solution to fit your needs. Our 52 frame size can be available with plastic-type material gears for noise-delicate applications.
INLINE PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our inline planetary gearbox configurations provide the highest efficiency and best output torque of all our speed reducers. These gearboxes are created to deal with varying loads with little backlash. Planetary gear reducers operate more quietly than parallel shaft reducers. With 18 ratio choices which range from 5:1 to 1000:1, we have a solution to fit your needs.
PARALLEL SHAFT GEARBOX
Parallel shaft gearboxes are the best choice for continuous duty applications. Their equipment cluster design provides a highly effective method for dissipating temperature. Parallel shaft gearboxes have the shortest amount of our inline gear reducer options so they work well in environments with limited space. Our parallel shaft gear reducers provide an affordable drop-in replacement solution for most little parallel shaft gearmotors.
Wormwheel gearboxes pass several names, including 90-degree gearboxes, right angle gearboxes, acceleration reducers, worm equipment reducers and worm drive gearboxes. Gear reduction boxes include a gear arrangement in which a equipment in the form of a screw, also called a worm, meshes with a worm gear. These gears are typically created from bronze and the worms are steel or stainless steel.
While worm gears are similar to a spur equipment, the worm gearboxes are significantly smaller than other equipment reduction boxes. A major benefit of worm equipment reducers is certainly that they produce an output that is 90° from the insight and can be utilized to transmit higher torque or decrease rotational speed. Most often, a worm gearbox provides right hand threads; to change the path of the output, a left-hands thread worm gearbox is necessary.
