Capable of handling 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
Minimal reflected inertia to engine for longer service life
Just ridiculously rugged as all get-out
The overall EP design Cycloidal gearbox proves to be extremely durable, and it requires minimal maintenance following installation. The EP may be the most dependable reducer in the industrial marketplace, and it is a perfect match for applications in large industry such as for example oil & gas, main and secondary steel processing, industrial food production, metal trimming and forming machinery, wastewater treatment, extrusion tools, among others.

Cycloidal advantages over various other styles of gearing;

The EP 3000 and our related products that make use of 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 inner pins, keeping the decrease high and the rotational inertia low. The wheel includes 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, rather than those shear forces that could exist with an involute gear mesh. That provides several performance benefits such as high shock load capability (>500% of rating), minimal friction and put on, lower mechanical service factors, among many others. The cycloidal style also has a huge output shaft bearing period, which gives exceptional overhung load features without requiring any extra expensive components.

Torque magnification. Gearboxes offer mechanical advantage by not merely decreasing quickness but also increasing result torque.
