Mechanical drives take supplied torque and may increase or reduce that torque based on application. Also velocity is increased or reduced in proportion index G – Equipment BOXES – on blue – smallto the speed decrease ratio. Ever-Power includes a full line of gearboxes and swiftness reducers, and the parts needed to build them, in a wide variety of regular ratios and shaft options and also custom designs.
Helical, bevel, and miter gear boxes provide options of rate reducers or quickness increasers, and may be driven in either direction. All Ever-Power worm gear speed reducers and right angle drives are manufactured for powerful in a large spectrum of applications. Typically worm gear boxes are not used as swiftness increasers. The instances are molded glass-filled material making them extremely durable and resistant to corrosive conditions. They are offered in a wide selection of ratios and are equipped with right hand or left hands worm gears. The result shafts could be solid or hollow, and load capacity is unaffected by direction and rotation.
Worm gear velocity reducers are made up of a screw (the worm) that drives a wheel (helical gear) or single enveloping wheel and are found in mechanical applications ranging from conveyors to exercise devices to robots.
Geneva mechanisms and assemblies are usually used to transform continuous rotary movement into intermittent rotary movement. The rotating drive wheel includes a pin that gets to right 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 words of the typical gearboxes of the BJ-Series. Further optimisation may be accomplished through the use of 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. Therefore the general noise degree of our gearbox is definitely reduced to an absolute minimum.
On the worm gearbox the input shaft and output shaft are perpendicular to one another. This often proves to be a decisive advantage producing the incorporation of the gearbox substantially simpler and smaller sized.The worm gearbox is 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 quite firmly embedded in the apparatus house and is well suited for immediate suspension for wheels, movable arms and other parts rather than needing to build a separate suspension.
For larger gear ratios,EP-Gear’s worm gearboxes will provide a self-locking effect, which in many circumstances can be utilized as brake or as extra security. Also spindle gearboxes with a trapezoidal spindle are self-locking, making them ideal for a wide range of solutions.
The worm-gear reducer comprises of three main parts: housing, worm-gear and wheel.
The carcasses are made from GG-25 cast-iron, and are available for all sorts of gear-reducer. This make sure they are perform efficiently under stressed conditions, vibrations or any kind of setback that cannot 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. Due to the mechanical work of these two parts having top quality, excellent efficiency and low sound levels have been achived.
The output shaft is hollow, though it can be done 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 is born like response to the demand of our costumers since, upon mounting greater bearings in the result, bears better axial loads that its analogous one in the MF-62 series. The rest of technical characteristic are similar to the its analogous in the size 62.
In order to set up a gear reducer and also 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 apparatus reducer needed to be painted, the oil seals should be covered to prevent them from drying and losing their seal.
The device work of the fittings set up in the output shafts require an ISO H7 or h6 margin for the hollow shaft.
It is wise to pay attention to this factor when the gear reducer output shaft is driven rather than being a driver. Considering that one of the features of this worm-gear reducer may be the fact that can’t be axle-powered by the output shaft (irreversibility), it is almost impossible to meet total irreversibility conditions, because of external elements such as for example vibrations, etc. This is why, when the application requires 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 the following:
• Efficiency < 0,55 (observe table of technical features).
This kind of gear reducer will get a permanent lubrication, so it does 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 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 gear pairings provide large speed decrease ratios with only 1 gear pairing in a far more compact space in comparison to other types of gears. You can expect up to a maximum ratio of 100:1 with this products. Another advantage of the Worm and Wheel gear pairings is the low level noise they produce. Some drawbacks are the general low efficiency and the actual fact that they generate warmth.
Benefit of EP’s Worm Gears – “Cool rolled Worm Gears”
1) The hardness of the helicoid surface area has been attained by work hardening when the cold rolling was performed, providing Worm gears with better mechanical properties than machined worms because of reality that the metallic fibrous framework has not been cut.
2) The top hardness after cool rolling is increased by 1.2 to at least one 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) Frosty rolled worms are suitable for miniature gear applications since this is often rotated smoothly without damaging the worm wheels made out of POM or additional soft materials.
4) Due to 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 provide a smooth operation and long term durability.
Worm gears are made of a worm and a gear (sometimes known as a worm wheel), with nonparallel, nonintersecting shafts oriented 90 degrees to each other. The worm can be analogous to a screw with a V-type thread, and the apparatus is usually analogous to a spur equipment. The worm is normally the traveling component, with the worm’s thread advancing the teeth of the gear.
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 change (360 degrees) of the worm advances the gear by one tooth. So a gear with 24 teeth will provide a gear reduced amount of 24:1. For a multi-begin worm, the gear reduction equals the number of teeth on the apparatus, divided by the amount 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 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 heat, which limits the effectiveness of worm gears to 30 to 50 percent. In order to minimize friction (and for that reason, heat), the worm and gear are constructed with dissimilar metals – for example, the worm may be produced of hardened metal and the apparatus manufactured from bronze or aluminum.
Although the sliding contact decreases efficiency, it provides extremely quiet operation. (The utilization of dissimilar metals for the worm and gear also plays a part in quiet operation.) This makes worm gears suitable for use where noise should be minimized, such as for example in elevators. Furthermore, the use of a softer materials for the gear means that it can absorb shock loads, like those experienced in large 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-acceleration applications. And, because their decrease ratio is founded on the number of gear teeth by itself, they are more compact than other types of gears. Like fine-pitch business lead screws, worm gears are typically self-locking, making them perfect for hoisting and lifting applications.
Worms & Worm Gears
EP Gear’s worms and worm gears provide a highly effective answer for power transmission applications requiring high-ratio acceleration reduction in a restricted space using correct angle (90°), nonintersecting shafts. When properly used, worms and worm gears provide the smoothest, quietest kind of gearing.
Because the efficiency of a worm gear drive depends on the lead angle and quantity of begins on the worm – and because increased efficiency is always a goal, the ratio should be kept only possible. To run correctly, worms and worm gears used together must have the same diametral pitch and threads.
