Product Features
The 700 Series’ large oil reservoir provides efficient heat dissipation and lubrication for longer operating existence.
Its multi-position mounting versatility allows for installation in practically any position.
Housings are straddle-milled, best and bottom level, for precise alignment of horizontal and vertical bases.
Internal baffles assure positive, leak-free venting.
The 700 Series’ rugged casing, fabricated of fine-grained, gear-quality cast iron, provides maximum strength for maximum durability, and also greater precision during worm and gear alignment.
EP Gear’s 700 Series high-strength bronze worm gear is straddle mounted between heavy-duty tapered roller bearings to improve thrust and overhung load capacities, sizes 713-760.
Our 700 Series’ high-strength steel result shaft assures capacity for high torque and overhung loads.
Pipe plugs allow easy fill, level, and drain in virtually any mounting position.
The 700 Series’ super-finished oil-seal diameters on both input and output shafts extend seal life.
Both 2D and 3D CAD drawings are available in our eCatalog.
GEARBOX REDUCERS
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 input speeds, or when gearmotor performance is important. Contact our technical sales personnel for help identifying which gearbox answer is best for you.
RIGHT ANGLE REDUCERS
WORM GEAR REDUCER
EP’s worm equipment reducers are designed with a hollow bore and allow for a corner switch with optional dual result. The reducers come in 12 ratios which range from 5:1 to 100:1, with non-back-drivable ratios 30:1 and higher. Our right angle gearboxes are designed with five mounting choices providing versatility when incorporating the reducer into item.
RIGHT ANGLE BEVEL GEARBOX
bevel-right-angle-gearbox
The proper angle bevel gearbox combines the top features of our right angle worm and planetary inline reducers. With a good and efficient right angle configuration, our correct angle planetary gearboxes offer a robust solution. The proper angle bevel gearbox comes in 18 ratios which range from 5:1 to 1000:1, and it is back-drivable at all ratios.
INLINE REDUCERS
I-SERIES PLANETARY GEARBOX
i-series-planetary-gearbox
Our I-Series little planetary gearbox configurations supply the smallest footprint and quietest procedure of our quickness reducers. These gearboxes are created to handle varying loads with little backlash. With framework sizes 52cm, 62cm, and 81cm, 12 ratios which range from 5:1 to 308:1, we’ve a solution to suit your needs. Our 52 frame size is also available with plastic material gears for noise-delicate applications.
INLINE PLANETARY GEARBOX
inline-planetary-gearbox
Our inline planetary gearbox configurations supply the highest effectiveness and best result torque of all our velocity reducers. These gearboxes are designed to manage varying loads with small backlash. Planetary equipment reducers operate more quietly than parallel shaft reducers. With 18 ratio choices which range from 5:1 to 1000:1, we have a solution to fit your needs.
PARALLEL SHAFT GEARBOX
parallel-shaft-gearbox
Parallel shaft gearboxes will be the best choice for continuous duty applications. Their gear cluster design provides a highly effective method for dissipating temperature. Parallel shaft gearboxes possess the shortest length of our inline equipment reducer options so they work well in conditions with limited space. Our parallel shaft equipment reducers provide an affordable drop-in substitute solution for most little parallel shaft gearmotors.
Wormwheel gearboxes go by several names, including 90-degree gearboxes, right position gearboxes, quickness 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 equipment. These gears are typically created from bronze and the worms are steel or stainless steel.

While worm gears act like a spur equipment, the worm gearboxes are considerably smaller than other equipment reduction boxes. A main benefit of worm equipment reducers can be that they produce an output that’s 90° from the input and can be used to transmit higher torque or reduce rotational speed. Most often, a worm gearbox offers right hand threads; to improve the direction of the output, a left-hand thread worm gearbox is necessary.
