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
Cycloidal gearbox minimal reflected inertia to electric motor for longer service life
Just ridiculously rugged because all get-out
The entire EP design proves to be extremely durable, and it needs minimal maintenance following installation. The EP is the most reliable reducer in the commercial marketplace, and it is a perfect suit for applications in large industry such as for example oil & gas, primary and secondary metal processing, industrial food production, metal trimming and forming machinery, wastewater treatment, extrusion apparatus, among others.

Cycloidal advantages over various 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 comprised of an eccentric roller bearing that drives a wheel around a couple of internal pins, keeping the decrease high and the rotational inertia low. The wheel includes a curved tooth profile instead of the more traditional involute tooth profile, which eliminates shear forces at any point 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 functionality benefits such as high shock load capacity (>500% of rating), minimal friction and use, lower mechanical service elements, among numerous others. The cycloidal style also has a large output shaft bearing span, which provides exceptional overhung load features without requiring any extra expensive components.

Torque magnification. Gearboxes offer mechanical advantage by not only decreasing acceleration but also increasing output torque.
