Mechanical drives take supplied torque and could increase or reduce that torque based on application. Also acceleration is increased or reduced compared index G – Equipment BOXES – on blue – smallto the speed reduction ratio. Ever-Power includes a full type of gearboxes and swiftness reducers, and the elements needed to build them, in a wide range of regular ratios and shaft choices and also custom designs.
Helical, bevel, and miter equipment boxes provide options of speed reducers or quickness increasers, and could be driven in either direction. All Ever-Power worm gear speed reducers and correct angle drives are manufactured for high performance in a large spectrum of applications. Typically worm equipment boxes are not used as velocity increasers. The instances are molded glass-filled material making them extremely durable and resistant to corrosive environments. They can be found in an array of ratios and are built with right hands or left hands worm gears. The output shafts could be solid or hollow, and load capability is unaffected by direction and rotation.
Worm gear acceleration reducers are made up 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 physical exercise devices to robots.
Geneva mechanisms and assemblies are usually used to transform continuous rotary motion into intermittent rotary movement. The rotating drive wheel has a pin that gets to into a slot of the powered wheel advancing it by one stage and a blocking disc that locks the powered wheel in position between steps.
Compact design is one of the key phrases of the typical gearboxes of the BJ-Series. Further optimisation can be achieved through the use of adapted gearboxes or particular gearboxes.
Our worm gearboxes and actuators are extremely quiet. This is due to the very smooth running 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 take extra treatment of any sound that can be interpreted as a murmur from the apparatus. So the general noise degree of our gearbox is certainly reduced to an absolute minimum.
On the worm gearbox the input shaft and output shaft are perpendicular to each other. This often proves to become a decisive advantage producing the incorporation of the gearbox significantly simpler and smaller sized.The worm gearbox can be an angle gear. This is an advantage for incorporation into constructions.
Solid bearings in solid housing
The output shaft of the BJ worm gearbox is very firmly embedded in the apparatus house and is perfect for immediate suspension for wheels, movable arms and other areas rather than needing to create a separate suspension.
For larger gear ratios,EP-Gear’s worm gearboxes provides a self-locking effect, 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 ideal for a wide selection of solutions.
The worm-gear reducer comprises of three main parts: housing, worm-gear and wheel.
The carcasses are constructed with GG-25 cast-iron, and are available for all types of gear-reducer. This make sure they are perform effectively under stressed conditions, vibrations or any type of setback that cannot be avoided through 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. Because of the mechanical work of these two parts having top quality, excellent performance and low sound amounts have been achived.
The output shaft is hollow, though it is possible to adapt a good shaft.
The oil seals made of 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 in the marketplace.
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 offers like reference size 63 and exists like response to the request of our costumers since, upon mounting higher bearings in the result, bears better axial loads that its analogous one in the MF-62 series. The others of technical characteristic are identical to the its analogous in the size 62.
In order to create a gear reducer and to make it happen efficiently, the following instructions must be taken into account:
It should 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 essential oil seals should be covered to prevent them from drying and losing their seal.
The device work of the fittings create in the output shafts require an ISO H7 or h6 margin for the hollow shaft.
It is wise to pay attention to this aspect when the gear reducer result shaft is driven rather than being a driver. Bearing in mind that among the top features of this worm-gear reducer may be the fact that cannot be axle-driven by the output shaft (irreversibility), it really is almost impossible to meet up total irreversibility conditions, because of external factors such as for example vibrations, etc. For this reason, when the application needs total irreversibility, it is advisable to utilize exterior brakes with enough power to avoid slipping.
It may be said that the conditions under which irreversibility can occur are as follows:
• Efficiency < 0,55 (observe table of specialized features).
This kind of gear reducer will get a permanent lubrication, so it will not need any type of maintenance.
The lubrication of the gear reducer type is constant and comes as standard, with top quality refined oil which has antirust and antiwear products with Fe, Cu and alloy protectors which has level of quality CLP DIN 51517-3, FGZ level 12, AP GL-4, US 224, AGMA 250-04; because of this its maintenance is not needed.
High reduction gear
Worm and wheel equipment pairings provide large speed decrease ratios with only 1 equipment 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 our products. Another benefit of the Worm and Wheel gear pairings is the low level sound they produce. Some disadvantages will be the general low efficiency and the fact that they generate warmth.
Advantage of EP’s Worm Gears – “Cool rolled Worm Gears”
1) The hardness of the helicoid surface has been attained by function hardening when the cold rolling was performed, providing Worm gears with better mechanical properties than machined worms due to reality that the metallic fibrous structure has not been cut.
2) The top hardness after cool rolling is increased by 1.2 to 1 1.3 times when compared with the hardness of the initial materials, and the hardness of the helicoid surface increases to around HB240 to 260.
3) Cool rolled worms are ideal for miniature gear applications since this could be rotated smoothly without damaging the worm wheels made out of POM or various other soft materials.
4) Due to the implementation of the cold rolling method, the helicoid surface of EP-Worm (M0.5 to 2.0) comes out with a mirror like complete. Thus, EP-Precision Chilly Rolled Worms give a smooth operation and long-term durability.
Worm gears are made of a worm and a equipment (sometimes known as a worm wheel), with non-parallel, nonintersecting shafts oriented 90 degrees to one another. The worm can be analogous to a screw with a V-type thread, and the apparatus is usually analogous to a spur gear. The worm is normally the generating component, with the worm’s thread advancing the teeth of the gear.
Just like a ball screw, the worm in a worm gear might have a single start or multiple starts – and therefore there are multiple threads, or helicies, on the worm. For a single-start worm, each complete change (360 degrees) of the worm advances the gear by one tooth. Therefore a gear with 24 teeth will provide a gear reduction of 24:1. For a multi-begin worm, the apparatus reduction equals the number of teeth on the gear, divided by the amount of starts on the worm. (This is different from almost every other types of gears, where the gear reduction is certainly a function of the diameters of both components.)
The meshing of the worm and the apparatus is a mixture of sliding and rolling actions, but sliding contact dominates at high reduction ratios. This sliding actions causes friction and temperature, which limits the effectiveness of worm gears to 30 to 50 percent. To be able to minimize friction (and for that reason, temperature), the worm and gear are made of dissimilar metals – for example, the worm could be produced of hardened steel and the apparatus made of bronze or aluminum.
Although the sliding contact decreases efficiency, it provides very quiet operation. (The utilization of dissimilar metals for the worm and equipment also plays a part in quiet operation.) This makes worm gears suitable for use where sound should be minimized, such as for example in elevators. In addition, the use of a softer materials for the gear means that it can absorb shock loads, like those experienced in weighty equipment or crushing devices.
The primary advantage of worm gears is their ability to provide high reduction ratios and correspondingly high torque multiplication. They can also be utilized as velocity reducers in low- to moderate-speed applications. And, because their decrease ratio is founded on the number of gear teeth only, they are more compact than other styles of gears. Like fine-pitch business lead screws, worm gears are usually self-locking, making them well suited for hoisting and lifting applications.
Worms & Worm Gears
EP Gear’s worms and worm gears provide a highly effective answer for power tranny applications requiring high-ratio acceleration reduction in a limited space using correct angle (90°), non-intersecting shafts. When properly used, worms and worm gears supply the smoothest, quietest kind of gearing.
Because the effectiveness of a worm gear drive depends upon the lead angle and amount of begins on the worm – and because increased effectiveness is always a goal, the ratio ought to be kept only possible. To run correctly, worms and worm gears used together will need to have the same diametral pitch and threads.
