FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Ever-Power develops and manufactures cycloidal equipment boxes to round off the product portfolio. In drive technology, especially in neuro-scientific tool machinery, automation and robotics, these small designed, high transmission precision gear boxes are used especially to meet the highest demands for stiffness, efficiency and efficiency. As well as the constantly extended regular range, these cycloidal precision equipment boxes could 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 compact 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 because all get-out
The overall Ever-Power design proves to be extremely durable, and it needs minimal maintenance following installation. The Ever-Power may be the most dependable reducer in the commercial marketplace, in fact it is a perfect fit for applications in heavy industry such as for example oil & gas, principal and secondary metal processing, industrial food production, metal reducing and forming machinery, wastewater treatment, extrusion products, among others.
Cycloidal advantages over additional 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 use cycloidal gearing technology deliver the most robust solution in the the majority of compact footprint. The primary power train is made up of an eccentric roller bearing that drives a wheel around a couple of internal pins, keeping the reduction 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 would exist with an involute gear mesh. That provides several overall performance benefits such as high shock load capacity (>500% of ranking), minimal friction and put on, lower mechanical service factors, among numerous others. The cycloidal design also has a large output shaft bearing period, 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 is the input and its own rotation causes an eccentric motion in the yellow cycloidal disk. The cycloidal disk is definitely geared to a stationary outer ring, represented in the animation by the outer band of grey segments. Its motion is used in 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 contrary direction to the input shaft. Because the individual parts are well-suitable to 3D printing, this opens the entranceway to easily prototyping custom designs and gearing ratios.
