FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Ever-Power develops and manufactures cycloidal equipment boxes to round off the product portfolio. In drive technology, especially in the field of tool machinery, automation and robotics, these compact designed, high transmitting precision gear boxes are used specifically to meet the best demands for stiffness, overall performance and efficiency. In addition to the constantly extended regular range, these cycloidal precision equipment boxes could be adapted to consumer requirements upon request.
Capable of handling larger “shock” loads (>500%) of rating compared to worm, helical, etc.
High reduction ratios and torque density in a compact 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 because all get-out
The overall Ever-Power design proves to be extremely durable, and it requires minimal maintenance following installation. The Ever-Power is the most dependable reducer in the industrial marketplace, in fact it is a perfect match for applications in large industry such as for example oil & gas, major and secondary steel processing, commercial food production, metal slicing and forming machinery, wastewater treatment, extrusion products, among others.

The Ever-Power 3000 and our related products that use cycloidal gearing technology deliver the the majority of robust solution in the the majority of compact footprint. The primary power train is comprised of an eccentric roller bearing that drives a wheel around a set of internal pins, keeping the decrease high and the rotational inertia low. The wheel incorporates a curved tooth profile rather than the more traditional involute tooth profile, which eliminates shear forces at any stage of contact. This design introduces compression forces, instead of those shear forces that could can be found with an involute equipment mesh. That provides a number of performance benefits such as high shock load capacity (>500% of rating), minimal friction and use, lower mechanical service factors, among many others. The cycloidal style also has a large output shaft bearing span, which provides exceptional overhung load capabilities without requiring any additional cycloidal gearbox expensive components.
A cycloidal drive has some similarities to both planetary gearing and strain-wave gears. In the image demonstrated, the green shaft is the input and its own rotation causes an eccentric motion in the yellow cycloidal disk. The cycloidal disk is geared to a stationary outer band, represented in the computer animation by the outer band of grey segments. Its motion is used in the purple result shaft via rollers or pins that interface to the holes in the disk. Like planetary gearing, the output shaft rotates in the opposite direction to the insight shaft. Because the individual parts are well-appropriate to 3D printing, this opens the entranceway to easily prototyping custom styles and gearing ratios.
