Mechanical drives take supplied torque and could increase or reduce that torque based on application. Also swiftness is increased or reduced in proportion index G – GEAR BOXES – on blue – smallto the speed decrease ratio. Ever-Power has a full type of gearboxes and speed reducers, and the parts had a need to build them, in an array of regular ratios and shaft options as well as custom designs.
Helical, bevel, and miter gear boxes offer the options of acceleration reducers or velocity increasers, and may be powered in either direction. All Ever-Power worm equipment speed reducers and right angle drives are manufactured for high performance in a large spectrum of applications. Typically worm equipment boxes are not used as quickness increasers. The instances are molded glass-filled materials making them extremely rugged and resistant to corrosive environments. They can be found in an array of ratios and are built with right hand or left hand worm gears. The output shafts may be solid or hollow, and load capacity is unaffected by path and rotation.
Worm gear speed reducers are comprised of a screw (the worm) that drives a wheel (helical gear) or solitary enveloping wheel and are used in mechanical applications ranging from conveyors to exercise devices to robots.
Geneva mechanisms and assemblies are typically used to transform continuous rotary motion into intermittent rotary movement. The rotating drive wheel has a pin that gets to right into a slot of the driven wheel advancing it by one step and a blocking disc that locks the driven wheel in position between steps.
Compact design
Compact design is one of the key terms of the typical gearboxes of the BJ-Series. Further optimisation can be achieved by using adapted gearboxes or special gearboxes.
Low noise
Our worm gearboxes and actuators are extremely quiet. This is because of the very smooth working of the worm equipment combined with the use of cast iron and high precision on element manufacturing and assembly. In connection with our precision gearboxes, we consider extra care of any sound that can be interpreted as a murmur from the gear. So the general noise level of our gearbox is definitely reduced to an absolute minimum.
Angle gearboxes
On the worm gearbox the input shaft and output shaft are perpendicular to one another. This frequently proves to become a decisive advantage producing the incorporation of the gearbox significantly simpler and smaller sized.The worm gearbox is an angle gear. This is often an edge for incorporation into constructions.
Solid bearings in solid housing
The output shaft of the BJ worm gearbox is quite firmly embedded in the gear house and is ideal for immediate suspension for wheels, movable arms and other areas rather than needing to create a separate suspension.
Self locking
For larger gear ratios,EP-Gear’s worm gearboxes will provide a self-locking impact, which in many circumstances can be utilized as brake or as extra protection. Also spindle gearboxes with a trapezoidal spindle are self-locking, making them perfect for a wide variety of solutions.
Structural Features
The worm-gear reducer is made up of three main parts: housing, worm-gear and wheel.
The carcasses are made of GG-25 cast-iron, and are available for all sorts of gear-reducer. This make them perform efficiently under stressed conditions, vibrations or any kind of setback that can’t be avoided during the assembly
The worm-gear is constructed of hardened and quench-hardened steel, with ground- on teeth sides, and the crowns made of DIN (GZ-CuSn 12 Ni2) centricast bronze, melted on steel. Due to the mechanical work of the two parts having top quality, excellent overall performance and low sound amounts have been achived.
The output shaft is hollow, although it can be done to adapt a good shaft.
The oil seals manufactured from NITRILE BUTADIENE, according to DIN 3760, top quality bearings, an EPOXY- impregnated finish ( 2 components), and grey-coloured SINGLE LAYER ENAMEL finish ( 2 components) ( RAL 7672), provide the most competitive gear reducer out there.
Size 63
In the size 62 of the MF series, worm-gear reducers, the output hollow shaft of diameter 30 has been included, that substitutes to the output hollow shaft with diameter 25, from size 62. This variant has like reference size 63 and is born like response to the request of our costumers since, upon mounting higher bearings in the output, bears greater axial loads that its analogous one in the MF-62 series. The others of technical feature are similar to the its analogous in the size 62.
Assembly Position
In order to setup a gear reducer and also to make it happen efficiently, the following instructions must be considered:
It must be fixed on a flat surface to avoid either vibrations or tensions.
If undistributed loads or continued start-ups are foreseen, it is recommended to insert compensating couplings, connectors, torque limiters etc…
If the gear reducer needed to be painted, the oil seals must be covered to prevent them from drying and losing their seal.
The machine work of the fittings setup in the output shafts require an ISO H7 or h6 margin for the hollow shaft.
Backdriving
It is wise to focus on this aspect when the gear reducer output shaft is driven instead of being a driver. Considering that among the top features of this worm-equipment reducer may be the fact that can’t be axle-driven by the result shaft (irreversibility), it is almost not possible to meet total irreversibility conditions, because of external elements such as for example vibrations, etc. That is why, when the application requires total irreversibility, it is advisable to make use of exterior brakes with enough capacity to avoid slipping.
It could be said that the circumstances under which irreversibility can occur are as follows:
• Efficiency < 0,55 (see table of specialized features).
Maintenance
This sort of gear reducer will get a permanent lubrication, so it really does not need any kind of maintenance.
Lubrication
The lubrication of this gear reducer type is continuous and comes as standard, with high quality refined oil which includes antirust and antiwear products with Fe, Cu and alloy protectors which has quality level CLP DIN 51517-3, FGZ level 12, AP GL-4, US 224, AGMA 250-04; for that reason its maintenance isn’t needed.

High reduction gear
Worm and wheel equipment pairings provide large swiftness reduction ratios with only one gear pairing in a far more compact space when compared with other types of gears. We offer up to a maximum ratio of 100:1 with this products. Another benefit of the Worm and Wheel gear pairings is the low level noise they produce. Some drawbacks will be the general low efficiency and the fact that they generate high temperature.

Advantage of EP’s Worm Gears – “Chilly rolled Worm Gears”
1) The hardness of the helicoid surface area has been achieved by function hardening when the cold rolling was performed, providing Worm gears with better mechanical properties than machined worms due to fact that the metallic fibrous structure is not cut.

2) The top hardness after frosty rolling is increased by 1.2 to at least one 1.3 times in comparison to the hardness of the initial material, and the hardness of the helicoid surface increases to around HB240 to 260.

3) Cold rolled worms are suitable for miniature gear applications since this could be rotated smoothly without damaging the worm wheels crafted from POM or additional soft materials.

4) Because of the implementation of this cold rolling method, the helicoid surface area of EP-Worm (M0.5 to 2.0) comes out with a mirror like finish. Thus, EP-Precision Chilly Rolled Worms give a smooth operation and long-term durability.

Worm gears are made of a worm and a gear (sometimes referred to as a worm wheel), with nonparallel, non-intersecting shafts oriented 90 degrees to one another. The worm is analogous to a screw with a V-type thread, and the apparatus is certainly analogous to a spur gear. The worm is normally the driving component, with the worm’s thread advancing the teeth of the gear.

Just like a ball screw, the worm in a worm gear may have an individual start or multiple starts – meaning that there are multiple threads, or helicies, on the worm. For a single-start worm, each full switch (360 degrees) of the worm advances the equipment by one tooth. So a gear with 24 teeth will provide a gear reduction of 24:1. For a multi-start worm, the apparatus reduction equals the number of teeth on the apparatus, divided by the amount of begins on the worm. (This is different from almost every other types of gears, where in fact the gear reduction can be a function of the diameters of the two components.)
The meshing of the worm and the gear is a mixture of sliding and rolling actions, but sliding contact dominates at high reduction ratios. This sliding action causes friction and warmth, which limits the performance of worm gears to 30 to 50 percent. In order to minimize friction (and therefore, temperature), the worm and gear are made of dissimilar metals – for example, the worm may be made of hardened steel and the apparatus made of bronze or aluminum.

Although the sliding contact decreases efficiency, it provides extremely quiet operation. (The use of dissimilar metals for the worm and gear also contributes to quiet operation.) This makes worm gears suitable for use where noise should be minimized, such as for example in elevators. In addition, the use of a softer material for the gear means that it could absorb shock loads, like those skilled in large equipment or crushing machines.

The primary advantage of worm gears is their ability to provide high reduction ratios and correspondingly high torque multiplication. They may also be used as rate reducers in low- to medium-velocity applications. And, because their reduction ratio is based on the number of gear teeth by itself, they are smaller sized than other styles of gears. Like fine-pitch business lead screws, worm gears are usually self-locking, making them ideal for hoisting and lifting applications.

Worms & Worm Gears
EP Gear’s worms and worm gears provide an effective answer for power transmitting applications requiring high-ratio swiftness reduction in a restricted space using right angle (90°), non-intersecting shafts. When properly used, worms and worm gears supply the smoothest, quietest type of gearing.

Because the effectiveness of a worm gear drive depends on the business lead angle and quantity of begins on the worm – and because increased effectiveness is always a goal, the ratio ought to be kept as low as possible. To run properly, worms and worm gears used together will need to have the same diametral pitch and threads.
