The 700 Series’ super-finished oil-seal diameters on both input and output shafts extend seal life.
Both 2D and 3D CAD drawings are available in our eCatalog.
Right angle gearboxes (worm and planetary) are durable and built for 90° turns. Inline reducers (parallel shaft and planetary) are an ideal match for motors with high input speeds, or when gearmotor performance is important. Get in touch with our technical sales staff for help identifying which gearbox alternative is best for you.
RIGHT ANGLE REDUCERS
WORM GEAR REDUCER
EP’s worm equipment reducers are designed with a hollow bore and invite for a corner turn with optional dual output. The reducers come 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 top features of our correct angle worm and planetary inline reducers. With a good and efficient right angle configuration, our right angle planetary gearboxes provide a robust solution. The proper 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 little planetary gearbox configurations supply the smallest footprint and quietest procedure of our acceleration reducers. These gearboxes are created to handle 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 material gears for noise-sensitive applications.
INLINE PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our inline planetary gearbox configurations provide the highest performance and best output torque of all our rate 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 which range from 5:1 to 1000:1, we’ve a solution to suit your needs.
PARALLEL SHAFT GEARBOX
Parallel shaft gearboxes are the best choice for constant duty applications. Their gear cluster design provides a highly effective method for dissipating high temperature. Parallel shaft gearboxes possess the shortest amount of our inline gear reducer options so they work very well in conditions with limited space. Our parallel shaft gear reducers provide an affordable drop-in replacement solution for most small parallel shaft gearmotors.
Wormwheel gearboxes go by several names, including 90-degree gearboxes, right angle gearboxes, swiftness reducers, worm equipment reducers and worm drive gearboxes. Gear reduction boxes feature a gear arrangement when a equipment in the form of a screw, also called a worm, meshes with a worm gear. These gears are typically made 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 gear reduction boxes. A primary benefit of worm gear reducers is usually that they generate an output that is 90° from the insight and can be utilized to transmit higher torque or reduce rotational speed. Most often, a worm gearbox has right hand threads; to improve the path of the result, a left-hands thread worm gearbox is necessary.
