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 capacity for high torque and overhung loads.
Pipe plugs allow easy fill, level, and drain in virtually any mounting position.
The 700 Series’ super-finished oil-seal diameters on both input and output shafts extend seal lifestyle.
Both 2D and 3D CAD drawings are available in our eCatalog.
Correct angle gearboxes (worm and planetary) are tough and built for 90° turns. Inline reducers (parallel shaft and planetary) are a perfect match for motors with high input speeds, or when gearmotor efficiency is important. Contact our technical sales staff for help identifying which gearbox alternative is most beneficial for you.
RIGHT ANGLE REDUCERS
WORM GEAR REDUCER
EP’s worm equipment reducers are designed with a hollow bore and allow for a corner switch with optional dual output. The reducers come in 12 ratios which range 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 item.
RIGHT ANGLE BEVEL GEARBOX
The right angle bevel gearbox combines the top 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 ranging from 5:1 to 1000:1, and it is back-drivable at all ratios.
I-SERIES PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our I-Series small planetary gearbox configurations supply the smallest footprint and quietest operation of our swiftness reducers. These gearboxes are made to manage varying loads with small backlash. With framework sizes 52cm, 62cm, and 81cm, 12 ratios which range from 5:1 to 308:1, we have a solution to fit your needs. Our 52 frame size can be available with plastic-type gears for noise-delicate applications.
INLINE PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our inline planetary gearbox configurations provide the highest efficiency and best result torque of most our rate reducers. These gearboxes are made to deal with 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 fit your needs.
PARALLEL SHAFT GEARBOX
Parallel shaft gearboxes are the top choice for continuous duty applications. Their gear cluster design provides a highly effective method for dissipating warmth. Parallel shaft gearboxes have the shortest amount of our inline gear reducer options so they work well in conditions with limited space. Our parallel shaft gear reducers offer an affordable drop-in substitute solution for most small parallel shaft gearmotors.
Wormwheel gearboxes go by several names, including 90-degree gearboxes, right position gearboxes, rate reducers, worm gear reducers and worm drive gearboxes. Gear decrease boxes include a gear arrangement in which a gear in the form of a screw, also known as a worm, meshes with a worm equipment. These gears are usually made from bronze and the worms are metal or stainless steel.
While worm gears are similar to a spur equipment, the worm gearboxes are significantly smaller than other gear reduction boxes. A major benefit of worm gear reducers is usually that they produce an output that’s 90° from the insight and can be used to transmit higher torque or decrease rotational speed. Frequently, a worm gearbox has right hand threads; to improve the direction of the output, a left-hands thread worm gearbox is necessary.
