FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Ever-Power develops and manufactures cycloidal gear boxes to circular off the product portfolio. In drive technology, especially in the field of device machinery, automation and robotics, these compact designed, high transmission precision equipment boxes are used specifically to meet the best demands for stiffness, functionality and efficiency. As well as the constantly extended regular range, these cycloidal precision equipment boxes can be adapted to consumer requirements upon request.
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
Minimal reflected inertia to 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 may be the most reliable reducer in the industrial marketplace, in fact it is a perfect suit for applications in heavy industry such as oil & gas, major 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;
Inline Cycloidal Gearboxes
circulute-gearboxes EP 3000 Series variants, Ever-Power product family
The Ever-Power 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 made up of an eccentric roller bearing that drives a wheel around a set of inner pins, keeping the reduction 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 style introduces compression forces, rather than those shear forces that could exist with an involute gear mesh. That provides numerous functionality benefits such as high shock load capacity (>500% of rating), minimal friction and put on, lower mechanical service elements, among many others. The cycloidal style also has a large output shaft bearing span, which gives exceptional overhung load capabilities cycloidal gearbox without requiring any additional expensive components.
A cycloidal drive has some similarities to both planetary gearing and strain-wave gears. In the image shown, the green shaft may be the input and its rotation causes an eccentric movement in the yellow cycloidal disk. The cycloidal disk is certainly geared to a stationary outer ring, represented in the animation by the outer ring of grey segments. Its movement is transferred to 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-suited to 3D printing, this opens the door to easily prototyping customized designs and gearing ratios.
