FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Ever-Power develops and manufactures cycloidal gear boxes to round off the product portfolio. In drive technology, especially in neuro-scientific device machinery, automation and robotics, these compact designed, high transmission precision equipment boxes are used especially to meet the best demands for stiffness, performance 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 commercial marketplace, in fact it is a perfect match for applications in large industry such as oil & gas, major and secondary metal processing, industrial food production, metal trimming and forming machinery, wastewater treatment, extrusion equipment, among others.
Cycloidal advantages over various other styles of gearing;
Inline Cycloidal Gearboxes
circulute-gearboxes EP 3000 Series variants, Ever-Power product cycloidal gearbox family
The Ever-Power 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 made up of an eccentric roller bearing that drives a wheel around a set of inner pins, keeping the decrease high and the rotational inertia low. The wheel incorporates 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 performance benefits such as high shock load capacity (>500% of ranking), minimal friction and put on, lower mechanical service elements, among numerous others. The cycloidal style also has a big output shaft bearing span, which gives exceptional overhung load capabilities without requiring any extra 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 yellowish 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 used in the purple result shaft via rollers or pins that user 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 entranceway to easily prototyping customized designs and gearing ratios.
