EP Gear’s 700 Series high-strength bronze worm gear is straddle mounted between heavy-duty tapered roller bearings to improve thrust and overhung load capacities, sizes 713-760.
Our 700 Series’ high-strength steel output shaft assures convenience of high torque and overhung loads.
Pipe plugs allow easy fill up, level, and drain in virtually any mounting position.
The 700 Series’ super-finished oil-seal diameters on both input and output shafts extend seal life.
Both 2D and 3D CAD drawings can be found in our eCatalog.
Right angle gearboxes (worm and planetary) are tough and built for 90° turns. Inline reducers (parallel shaft and planetary) are an ideal match for motors with high input speeds, or when gearmotor efficiency is important. Contact our technical sales personnel for help identifying which gearbox answer is best for you.
RIGHT ANGLE REDUCERS
WORM GEAR REDUCER
EP’s worm gear reducers were created with a hollow bore and invite for a corner turn with optional dual output. 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 versatility when worm reduction gearbox incorporating the reducer into product.
RIGHT ANGLE BEVEL GEARBOX
The right angle bevel gearbox combines the features of our right angle worm and planetary inline reducers. With a good and efficient correct angle configuration, our correct angle planetary gearboxes offer a robust solution. The proper angle bevel gearbox will come in 18 ratios which range 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 handle varying loads with small backlash. With body sizes 52cm, 62cm, and 81cm, 12 ratios ranging from 5:1 to 308:1, we’ve a solution to suit your needs. Our 52 frame size is also available with plastic gears for noise-delicate applications.
INLINE PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our inline planetary gearbox configurations provide the highest effectiveness and best result torque of all our velocity reducers. These gearboxes are made to handle varying loads with little backlash. Planetary gear reducers operate more quietly than parallel shaft reducers. With 18 ratio choices which range from 5:1 to 1000:1, we have a solution to suit your needs.
PARALLEL SHAFT GEARBOX
Parallel shaft gearboxes are the best choice for continuous duty applications. Their gear cluster design provides an effective method for dissipating heat. Parallel shaft gearboxes have the shortest length of our inline gear reducer options therefore they work very well in environments with limited space. Our parallel shaft gear reducers provide an affordable drop-in alternative solution for most small parallel shaft gearmotors.
Wormwheel gearboxes pass several names, including 90-degree gearboxes, right angle gearboxes, acceleration reducers, worm gear reducers and worm drive gearboxes. Gear reduction boxes include a gear arrangement when a equipment in the form of a screw, also known as a worm, meshes with a worm gear. These gears are typically made from bronze and the worms are metal or stainless steel.
While worm gears are similar to a spur gear, the worm gearboxes are significantly smaller than other equipment reduction boxes. A principal benefit of worm gear reducers is that they produce an output that’s 90° from the input and can be used to transmit higher torque or decrease rotational speed. Frequently, a worm gearbox has right hand threads; to change the direction of the output, a left-hand thread worm gearbox is required.
