Right angle gearboxes (worm and planetary) are durable and built for 90° turns. Inline reducers (parallel shaft and planetary) are a perfect match for motors with high insight speeds, or when gearmotor efficiency is important. Get in touch with our technical sales personnel for help determining which gearbox option is most beneficial for you.
RIGHT ANGLE REDUCERS
WORM GEAR REDUCER
EP’s worm gear reducers were created with a hollow bore and allow for a corner turn 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 options providing versatility when incorporating the reducer into item.
RIGHT ANGLE BEVEL GEARBOX
The right angle bevel gearbox combines the features of our right angle worm and planetary inline reducers. With a solid and efficient right angle configuration, our correct angle planetary gearboxes provide a robust solution. The right angle bevel gearbox will come in 18 ratios ranging from 5:1 to 1000:1, and it is back-drivable at all ratios.
I-SERIES PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our I-Series little planetary gearbox configurations provide the smallest footprint and quietest operation of our acceleration reducers. These gearboxes are created 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-type material gears for noise-sensitive applications.
INLINE PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our inline planetary gearbox configurations supply the highest performance and best output torque of most our speed reducers. These gearboxes are designed to manage varying loads with little backlash. Planetary equipment reducers operate more quietly than parallel shaft reducers. With 18 ratio options which range from 5:1 to 1000:1, we’ve a solution to fit your needs.
PARALLEL SHAFT GEARBOX
Parallel shaft gearboxes will be the best choice for continuous duty applications. Their equipment cluster design provides an effective method for dissipating temperature. Parallel shaft gearboxes have the shortest amount of our inline equipment reducer options therefore they work well in conditions with limited space. Our parallel shaft equipment reducers offer an affordable drop-in alternative solution for most small parallel shaft gearmotors.
Wormwheel gearboxes go by several names, including 90-degree gearboxes, right angle gearboxes, rate reducers, worm equipment reducers and worm drive gearboxes. Gear decrease boxes feature a gear arrangement in which 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 steel or stainless steel.
While worm gears act like a spur gear, the worm gearboxes are considerably smaller than other equipment reduction boxes. A main benefit of worm gear reducers can be that they produce an output that is 90° from the insight and can be utilized to transmit higher torque or reduce rotational speed. Most often, a worm gearbox provides right hand threads; to improve the path of the result, a left-hands thread worm gearbox is required.
