Cycloidal gearbox

Able to handle larger “shock” loads (>500%) of rating in comparison 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 electric motor for longer service life
Just ridiculously rugged as all get-out
The overall EP design proves to be extremely durable, and it needs minimal Cycloidal gearbox maintenance following installation. The EP may be the most reliable reducer in the industrial marketplace, and it is a perfect match for applications in large industry such as oil & gas, major and secondary metal processing, commercial food production, metal slicing and forming machinery, wastewater treatment, extrusion gear, among others.

Cycloidal advantages over other styles of gearing;

The EP 3000 and our related products that utilize cycloidal gearing technology deliver the most robust solution in the most compact footprint. The primary power train is made up of an eccentric roller bearing that drives a wheel around a set of inner pins, keeping the decrease high and the rotational inertia low. The wheel incorporates a curved tooth profile instead of the more traditional involute tooth profile, which gets rid of shear forces at any stage of contact. This style introduces compression forces, rather than those shear forces that would exist with an involute equipment mesh. That provides a number of efficiency benefits such as high shock load capability (>500% of ranking), minimal friction and wear, lower mechanical service elements, among numerous others. The cycloidal style also has a large 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 velocity but also increasing result torque.
