Mechanical drives take supplied torque and could increase or reduce that torque based on application. Also velocity is increased or decreased in proportion index G – Equipment BOXES – on blue – smallto the speed reduction ratio. Ever-Power has a full type of gearboxes and velocity reducers, and the parts had a need to build them, in a wide variety of regular ratios and shaft options as well as custom designs.
Helical, bevel, and miter equipment boxes provide options of swiftness reducers or velocity increasers, and could be driven in either path. All Ever-Power worm gear speed reducers and right angle drives are produced for powerful in a large spectral range of applications. Typically worm gear boxes are not used as velocity increasers. The cases are molded glass-filled material making them extremely rugged and resistant to corrosive conditions. They are offered in a wide selection of ratios and are equipped with right hands or left hand worm gears. The output shafts may be solid or hollow, and load capacity is unaffected by path and rotation.
Worm gear velocity 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 which range from conveyors to workout devices to robots.
Geneva mechanisms and assemblies are typically used to transform continuous rotary movement into intermittent rotary movement. The rotating drive wheel has a pin that reaches into a slot of the powered wheel advancing it by one step and a blocking disc that locks the powered wheel in position between steps.
Compact design is one of the key phrases of the standard gearboxes of the BJ-Series. Further optimisation can be achieved by using adapted gearboxes or unique gearboxes.
Our worm gearboxes and actuators are extremely quiet. This is due to the very smooth running of the worm equipment combined with the utilization of cast iron and high precision on element manufacturing and assembly. In connection with our precision gearboxes, we consider extra treatment of any sound which can be interpreted as a murmur from the gear. So the general noise level of our gearbox is certainly reduced to a complete minimum.
On the worm gearbox the input shaft and output shaft are perpendicular to each other. This often proves to be a decisive advantage producing the incorporation of the gearbox considerably simpler and more compact.The worm gearbox can be an angle gear. This is often 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 having to build a separate suspension.
For larger gear ratios,EP-Gear’s worm gearboxes will provide a self-locking effect, which in many situations can be utilized as brake or as extra protection. Also spindle gearboxes with a trapezoidal spindle are self-locking, making them well suited for a wide variety of solutions.
The worm-gear reducer comprises 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 effectively under stressed circumstances, vibrations or any kind of setback that can’t be avoided through the assembly
The worm-gear is made 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 high quality, excellent efficiency and low noise levels 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, high quality bearings, an EPOXY- impregnated finish ( 2 components), and grey-coloured SINGLE LAYER ENAMEL finish ( 2 components) ( RAL 7672), supply the most competitive gear reducer out there.
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 better bearings in the output, bears greater 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 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 suggested to insert compensating couplings, connectors, torque limiters etc…
If the gear reducer had to be painted, the oil seals must be covered to avoid 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 element when the apparatus reducer output shaft is driven rather than being a driver. Considering that among the top features of this worm-equipment reducer may be the fact that cannot be axle-powered by the output shaft (irreversibility), it is almost unattainable to meet up total irreversibility conditions, due to external elements such as for example vibrations, etc. This is why, when the application needs total irreversibility, it is advisable to make use of exterior brakes with enough power to avoid slipping.
It could be said that the conditions under which irreversibility can occur are as follows:
• Efficiency < 0,55 (find table of technical features).
This sort of gear reducer is provided with a permanent lubrication, so that it really does not need any type of maintenance.
The lubrication of this gear reducer type is continuous and comes as standard, with high quality refined oil which has antirust and antiwear products with Fe, Cu and alloy protectors that has level of quality CLP DIN 51517-3, FGZ level 12, AP GL-4, US 224, AGMA 250-04; for that reason its maintenance is not needed.
High reduction gear
Worm and wheel equipment pairings provide large speed reduction ratios with only one gear pairing in a far more compact space in comparison to other types of gears. We offer up to a maximum ratio of 100:1 with our products. Another benefit of the Worm and Wheel equipment pairings is the low level noise they produce. Some drawbacks are the general low performance and the fact that they generate high temperature.
Benefit of EP’s Worm Gears – “Cold 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 because of fact that the metallic fibrous framework 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 material, and the hardness of the helicoid surface increases to around HB240 to 260.
3) Frosty rolled worms are suitable for miniature gear applications since this can be rotated smoothly without damaging the worm wheels made out of POM or various other soft materials.
4) Because of the implementation of this cold rolling technique, the helicoid surface area 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 constructed of a worm and a gear (sometimes known as a worm wheel), with non-parallel, non-intersecting shafts oriented 90 degrees to one another. The worm is usually analogous to a screw with a V-type thread, and the apparatus can be analogous to a spur equipment. 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 might have an individual start or multiple starts – meaning that there are multiple threads, or helicies, on the worm. For a single-start worm, each complete change (360 degrees) of the worm increases the gear by one tooth. So a gear with 24 teeth provides a gear reduced amount of 24:1. For a multi-begin worm, the gear reduction equals the number of teeth on the gear, divided by the number of starts on the worm. (This is not the same as most other types of gears, where in fact the gear reduction is usually a function of the diameters of both 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 heat, which limits the performance of worm gears to 30 to 50 percent. In order to minimize friction (and for that reason, temperature), the worm and gear are made of dissimilar metals – for instance, the worm may be made of hardened metal and the apparatus made of bronze or aluminum.
Although the sliding contact reduces efficiency, it provides very quiet operation. (The usage of dissimilar metals for the worm and gear also plays a part in quiet operation.) This makes worm gears suitable for use where sound should be minimized, such as in elevators. In addition, the usage 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 may also be utilized as quickness reducers in low- to medium-velocity applications. And, because their reduction ratio is founded on the amount of gear teeth alone, they are more compact than other types of gears. Like fine-pitch business lead screws, worm gears are typically self-locking, which makes them well suited for hoisting and lifting applications.
Worms & Worm Gears
EP Gear’s worms and worm gears provide an effective answer for power transmission applications requiring high-ratio quickness reduction in a limited space using correct angle (90°), nonintersecting shafts. When properly used, worms and worm gears supply the smoothest, quietest type of gearing.
Because the efficiency of a worm gear drive depends on the lead angle and number of begins on the worm – and because increased effectiveness is always an objective, the ratio ought to be kept only possible. To run properly, worms and worm gears used together will need to have the same diametral pitch and threads.
