Right angle gearboxes (worm and planetary) are rugged and built for 90° turns. Inline reducers (worm reduction gearbox PARALLEL shaft and planetary) are a perfect match for motors with high insight speeds, or when gearmotor efficiency is important. Contact our technical sales staff for help identifying which gearbox option 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 change with optional dual output. The reducers come in 12 ratios which range from 5:1 to 100:1, with non-back-drivable ratios 30:1 and higher. Our correct angle gearboxes were created with five mounting choices providing versatility 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 correct angle planetary gearboxes provide a robust solution. The proper angle bevel gearbox will come in 18 ratios ranging from 5:1 to 1000:1, in fact it is back-drivable at all ratios.
I-SERIES PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our I-Series small planetary gearbox configurations provide the smallest footprint and quietest procedure of our swiftness reducers. These gearboxes are designed to deal with varying loads with small backlash. With frame 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 can be available with plastic-type gears for noise-sensitive applications.
INLINE PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our inline planetary gearbox configurations provide the highest effectiveness and best output torque of all our speed reducers. These gearboxes are made to deal with varying loads with little backlash. Planetary equipment 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 fit your needs.
PARALLEL SHAFT GEARBOX
Parallel shaft gearboxes are the top choice for continuous duty applications. Their gear cluster design provides an effective method for dissipating temperature. Parallel shaft gearboxes possess the shortest amount of our inline gear reducer options so they work very well in environments with limited space. Our parallel shaft equipment reducers provide an affordable drop-in alternative solution for most small parallel shaft gearmotors.
Wormwheel gearboxes go by 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 form of a screw, also referred to as a worm, meshes with a worm equipment. These gears are usually created from bronze and the worms are steel or stainless steel.
While worm gears act like a spur gear, the worm gearboxes are significantly smaller than other gear reduction boxes. A primary benefit of worm gear reducers is that they create an output that is 90° from the input and can be used to transmit higher torque or reduce rotational speed. Most often, a worm gearbox has right hand threads; to change the path of the output, a left-hand thread worm gearbox is necessary.
