Right angle gearboxes (worm and planetary) are durable and built for 90° turns. Inline reducers (parallel shaft and planetary) are a perfect match for motors with high insight speeds, or when gearmotor effectiveness is important. Contact our technical sales personnel for help determining which gearbox option is best 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 result. 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 flexibility when incorporating the reducer into item.
RIGHT ANGLE BEVEL GEARBOX
The proper angle bevel gearbox combines the top features of our right angle worm and planetary inline reducers. With a good and efficient correct angle configuration, our right angle planetary gearboxes offer 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 little planetary gearbox configurations provide the smallest footprint and quietest operation of our quickness reducers. These gearboxes are made to handle varying loads with little backlash. With frame 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 gears for noise-sensitive applications.
INLINE PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our inline planetary gearbox configurations supply the highest performance and best output torque of most 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 options ranging from 5:1 to 1000:1, we have a solution to fit your needs.
PARALLEL SHAFT GEARBOX
Parallel shaft gearboxes will be the top choice for constant duty applications. Their equipment cluster design provides a highly effective method for dissipating high temperature. Parallel shaft gearboxes possess the shortest length of our inline equipment reducer options therefore they work very well in environments with limited space. Our parallel shaft equipment reducers offer an affordable drop-in substitute solution for most small parallel shaft gearmotors.
Wormwheel gearboxes pass several names, including 90-degree gearboxes, right position gearboxes, swiftness reducers, worm equipment reducers and worm drive gearboxes. Gear reduction boxes feature a gear arrangement in which a gear in the type of a screw, also known as 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 gear, the worm gearboxes are significantly smaller than other gear reduction boxes. A main benefit of worm equipment reducers is that they generate an output that’s 90° from the input and can be used to transmit higher torque or decrease rotational speed. Most often, a worm gearbox offers right hand threads; to improve the path of the output, a left-hand thread worm gearbox is required.
