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 staff for help determining which gearbox option is best for you.
RIGHT ANGLE REDUCERS
WORM GEAR REDUCER
EP’s worm equipment reducers were created with a hollow bore and invite for a corner turn with optional dual result. The reducers can be found in 12 ratios which range from 5:1 to 100:1, with non-back-drivable ratios 30:1 and higher. Our right angle gearboxes were created with five mounting options providing versatility when incorporating the reducer into product.
RIGHT ANGLE BEVEL GEARBOX
The right angle bevel gearbox combines the features of our right angle worm and planetary inline reducers. With a good and efficient correct angle configuration, our right angle planetary gearboxes offer a robust solution. The right angle bevel gearbox will come in 18 ratios which range from 5:1 to 1000:1, and it is back-drivable at all ratios.
I-SERIES PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our I-Series small planetary gearbox configurations supply the smallest footprint and quietest operation of our rate reducers. These gearboxes are made to handle varying loads with small backlash. With frame sizes 52cm, 62cm, and 81cm, 12 ratios ranging from 5:1 to 308:1, we have a solution to fit your needs. Our 52 frame size can be available with plastic-type gears for noise-delicate applications.
INLINE PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our inline planetary gearbox configurations provide the highest performance and best result torque of all our speed reducers. These gearboxes are designed to deal with varying loads with little backlash. Planetary equipment reducers operate more quietly than parallel shaft reducers. With 18 ratio choices ranging from 5:1 to 1000:1, we’ve a solution to suit your needs.
PARALLEL SHAFT GEARBOX
Parallel shaft gearboxes are the best choice for continuous duty applications. Their gear cluster design provides an effective method for dissipating high temperature. Parallel shaft gearboxes have the shortest amount of our inline equipment reducer options so they work well in conditions with limited space. Our parallel shaft gear reducers provide an affordable drop-in replacement solution for most little parallel shaft gearmotors.
Wormwheel gearboxes pass several names, including 90-degree gearboxes, right angle gearboxes, quickness reducers, worm gear reducers and worm drive gearboxes. Gear reduction boxes feature a gear arrangement in which a gear in the form of a screw, also called a worm, meshes with a worm gear. These gears are typically created from bronze and the worms are metal or stainless steel.
While worm gears are similar to a spur gear, the worm gearboxes are significantly smaller than other equipment reduction boxes. A primary benefit of worm equipment reducers is definitely that they create an output that is 90° from the input and can be utilized to transmit higher torque or decrease rotational speed. Frequently, a worm gearbox has right hand threads; to change the direction of the output, a left-hand thread worm gearbox is necessary.
