Product Features
The 700 Series’ large oil reservoir provides efficient heat dissipation and lubrication for longer operating life.
Its multi-position mounting flexibility allows for installation in practically any position.
Housings are straddle-milled, top and bottom level, for precise alignment of horizontal and vertical bases.
Internal baffles assure confident, leak-free venting.
The 700 Series’ rugged casing, fabricated of fine-grained, gear-quality cast iron, provides optimum strength for maximum durability, and also greater precision during worm and gear alignment.
EP Gear’s 700 Series high-strength bronze worm equipment 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 convenient fill up, level, and drain in any mounting position.
The 700 Series’ super-finished oil-seal diameters on both input and output shafts extend seal existence.

GEARBOX REDUCERS
Right angle gearboxes (worm and planetary) are tough and built for 90° turns. Inline reducers (parallel shaft and planetary) will be an ideal match for motors with substantial input speeds, or when gearmotor effectiveness is important. Contact our technical sales staff for help determining which gearbox choice is best for you.
RIGHT ANGLE REDUCERS
WORM GEAR REDUCER
EP’s worm gear reducers are designed with a hollow bore and allow for a corner switch with optional dual output. The reducers can be found in 12 ratios ranging from 5:1 to 100:1, with non-back-drivable ratios 30:1 and higher. Our correct angle gearboxes were created with five mounting choices providing flexibility when incorporating the reducer into item.
RIGHT ANGLE BEVEL GEARBOX
bevel-right-angle-gearbox
The proper angle bevel gearbox combines the features of our correct angle worm and planetary inline reducers. With a good and efficient correct angle configuration, our correct angle planetary gearboxes offer a robust solution. The right angle bevel gearbox will come 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 provide the smallest footprint and quietest operation of our velocity reducers. These gearboxes are designed to deal with varying loads with small backlash. With framework sizes 52cm, 62cm, and 81cm, 12 ratios ranging from 5:1 to 308:1, we’ve a solution to suit your needs. Our 52 frame size is also available with plastic-type gears for noise-delicate applications.
INLINE PLANETARY GEARBOX
inline-planetary-gearbox
Our inline planetary gearbox configurations provide the highest efficiency and best output torque of all our acceleration reducers. These gearboxes are designed to handle varying loads with little backlash. Planetary gear reducers operate more quietly than parallel shaft reducers. With 18 ratio choices ranging from 5:1 to 1000:1, we’ve a solution to suit your needs.
PARALLEL SHAFT GEARBOX
parallel-shaft-gearbox
Parallel shaft gearboxes are the top choice for continuous duty applications. Their equipment cluster design provides a highly effective approach for dissipating high temperature. Parallel shaft gearboxes possess the shortest amount of our inline gear reducer options therefore they work well in environments with limited space. Our parallel shaft gear reducers offer an affordable drop-in substitute solution for most little parallel shaft gearmotors.
Wormwheel gearboxes pass several names, including 90-degree gearboxes, right angle gearboxes, rate reducers, worm gear reducers and worm drive gearboxes. Gear decrease boxes include a gear arrangement in which a equipment in the kind of a screw, also referred to as a worm, meshes with a worm gear. These gears are usually created from bronze and the worms will be steel or stainless steel.

While worm gears act like a spur gear, the worm gearboxes are significantly smaller than other equipment reduction boxes. A main benefit of worm equipment reducers is definitely that they create an output that is 90° from the insight and can be utilized to transmit bigger torque or reduce rotational speed. Most often, a worm gearbox offers right side threads; to change the direction of the output, a left-hand thread worm gearbox is necessary.
