Mechanical drives take supplied torque and may increase or reduce that torque predicated on application. Also rate is increased or decreased compared index G – GEAR BOXES – on blue – smallto the speed decrease ratio. Ever-Power includes a full type of gearboxes and swiftness reducers, and the components had a need to build them, in an array of regular ratios and shaft choices as well as custom designs.
Helical, bevel, and miter gear boxes provide options of speed reducers or quickness increasers, and may be powered in either direction. All Ever-Power worm gear speed reducers and right angle drives are produced for high performance in a large spectrum of applications. Typically worm gear boxes are not used as swiftness increasers. The situations are molded glass-filled materials making them extremely tough and resistant to corrosive conditions. They are offered in a wide variety of ratios and are built with right hand or left hands worm gears. The result shafts could be solid or hollow, and load capability is unaffected by path and rotation.
Worm gear swiftness reducers are comprised 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 physical exercise 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 right into a slot of the powered wheel advancing it by one step and a blocking disc that locks the driven wheel constantly in place between steps.
Compact design is one of the key terms of the typical gearboxes of the BJ-Series. Further optimisation can be achieved through the use of adapted gearboxes or unique gearboxes.
Our worm gearboxes and actuators are really quiet. This is due to the very smooth working of the worm equipment combined with the use of cast iron and high precision on component manufacturing and assembly. Regarding the our precision gearboxes, we take extra treatment of any sound that can be interpreted as a murmur from the gear. So the general noise level of our gearbox can be reduced to an absolute 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 significantly simpler and more compact.The worm gearbox is an angle gear. This is often an advantage for incorporation into constructions.
Strong 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 build a separate suspension.
For larger equipment ratios,EP-Gear’s worm gearboxes provides 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 ideal for a wide selection of solutions.
The worm-gear reducer is made up 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 them perform efficiently under stressed conditions, vibrations or any type of setback that cannot 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 these two parts having high quality, excellent functionality and low sound levels have been achived.
The output shaft is hollow, although it can be done to adapt a solid shaft.
The oil seals manufactured from 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 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 has like reference size 63 and is born like response to the request of our costumers since, upon mounting greater bearings in the result, 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.
In order to create a gear reducer and to make it work efficiently, the next instructions must be considered:
It should be fixed on a flat surface in order 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 apparatus reducer had to be painted, the oil seals should be covered to avoid them from drying and losing their seal.
The device work of the fittings setup in the output shafts need an ISO H7 or h6 margin for the hollow shaft.
It is wise to pay attention to this element when the gear reducer result shaft is driven instead of being a driver. Considering that one of the top features of this worm-gear reducer is the fact that cannot be axle-driven by the result shaft (irreversibility), it is almost extremely hard to meet total irreversibility conditions, due to external factors such as for example vibrations, etc. For this reason, when the application requires total irreversibility, it really is advisable to make use of external 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 is provided with a permanent lubrication, so it will not need any kind of maintenance.
The lubrication of this 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 isn’t needed.
High reduction gear
Worm and wheel equipment pairings provide large speed reduction ratios with only one equipment pairing in a far more compact space when compared with other types of gears. We offer up to maximum ratio of 100:1 with our products. Another advantage of the Worm and Wheel equipment pairings is the low level noise they produce. Some drawbacks are the general low effectiveness and the actual fact that they generate temperature.
Benefit of EP’s Worm Gears – “Chilly rolled Worm Gears”
1) The hardness of the helicoid surface has been achieved by function hardening when the cold rolling was performed, providing Worm gears with better mechanical properties than machined worms due to truth that the metallic fibrous framework is not cut.
2) The surface hardness after frosty 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 area increases to around HB240 to 260.
3) Frosty rolled worms are suitable for miniature equipment applications since this could be rotated smoothly without damaging the worm wheels made out of 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 Cool Rolled Worms provide a smooth procedure and long term durability.
Worm gears are constructed of a worm and a equipment (sometimes referred to as a worm wheel), with nonparallel, nonintersecting shafts oriented 90 degrees to one another. The worm is certainly analogous to a screw with a V-type thread, and the gear can be 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 full switch (360 degrees) of the worm advances the gear by one tooth. So a gear with 24 teeth provides a gear reduction of 24:1. For a multi-start worm, the gear reduction equals the number of teeth on the apparatus, divided by the amount of begins on the worm. (That is not the same as most 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 apparatus is an assortment of sliding and rolling actions, but sliding contact dominates at high reduction ratios. This sliding actions causes friction and high temperature, which limits the performance of worm gears to 30 to 50 percent. To be able to minimize friction (and therefore, temperature), the worm and gear are made of dissimilar metals – for instance, the worm could be made of hardened metal and the apparatus made of bronze or aluminum.
Although the sliding contact reduces efficiency, it provides extremely quiet operation. (The usage of dissimilar metals for the worm and gear also contributes to quiet procedure.) 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 implies that it can absorb shock loads, like those skilled in large equipment or crushing devices.
The primary benefit of worm gears is their capability to provide high reduction ratios and correspondingly high torque multiplication. They can also be utilized as velocity reducers in low- to medium-velocity applications. And, because their reduction ratio is founded on the number of gear teeth alone, they are more compact than other types of gears. Like fine-pitch business lead screws, worm gears are usually self-locking, which makes them perfect 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 rate reduction in a restricted space using right angle (90°), non-intersecting shafts. When properly used, worms and worm gears supply the smoothest, quietest kind of gearing.
Because the efficiency of a worm equipment drive depends upon the lead angle and quantity of begins on the worm – and because increased performance is always a goal, the ratio ought to be kept as low as possible. To run correctly, worms and worm gears used together will need to have the same diametral pitch and threads.
