Mechanical drives take supplied torque and could increase or reduce that torque based on application. Also acceleration is increased or reduced in proportion index G – GEAR BOXES – on blue – smallto the speed decrease ratio. Ever-Power has a full line of gearboxes and speed reducers, and the parts had a need to build them, in a wide variety of regular ratios and shaft options in addition to custom designs.
Helical, bevel, and miter gear boxes provide options of rate reducers or speed increasers, and may be driven in either direction. All Ever-Power worm equipment 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 quickness increasers. The instances are molded glass-filled materials making them extremely rugged and resistant to corrosive environments. They can be found in a wide selection of ratios and are built with right hand or left hand worm gears. The output shafts may be solid or hollow, and load capacity is unaffected by path and rotation.
Worm gear speed reducers are comprised of a screw (the worm) that drives a wheel (helical gear) or solitary enveloping wheel and so are found in mechanical applications ranging from conveyors to exercise devices to robots.
Geneva mechanisms and assemblies are typically used to transform continuous rotary movement into intermittent rotary motion. The rotating drive wheel has a pin that gets to right into a slot of the driven wheel advancing it by one stage and a blocking disc that locks the driven wheel in position between steps.
Compact design is one of the key words of the standard gearboxes of the BJ-Series. Further optimisation can be achieved by using adapted gearboxes or particular gearboxes.
Our worm gearboxes and actuators are really quiet. This is due to the very smooth operating 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 consider extra care of any sound that can be interpreted as a murmur from the gear. So the general noise level of our gearbox is usually reduced to an absolute minimum.
On the worm gearbox the input shaft and output shaft are perpendicular to one another. This often proves to become a decisive advantage producing the incorporation of the gearbox significantly simpler and smaller sized.The worm gearbox is an angle gear. This is often an edge for incorporation into constructions.
Solid bearings in solid housing
The output shaft of the BJ worm gearbox is quite firmly embedded in the gear house and is well suited for immediate suspension for wheels, movable arms and other areas rather than having to create a separate suspension.
For larger equipment ratios,EP-Gear’s worm gearboxes will provide a self-locking impact, which in many circumstances can be used as brake or as extra security. Also spindle gearboxes with a trapezoidal spindle are self-locking, making them perfect for an array of solutions.
The worm-gear reducer is made up of three main parts: housing, worm-gear and wheel.
The carcasses are made of GG-25 cast-iron, and are available for all types of gear-reducer. This make them perform efficiently under stressed conditions, vibrations or any kind 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. Because of the mechanical work of the two parts having top quality, excellent overall performance and low sound amounts have been achived.
The output shaft is hollow, although 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), provide the best 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 provides like reference size 63 and is born like answer to the request of our costumers since, upon mounting higher 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 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 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 gear reducer needed to be painted, the essential oil seals should be covered to prevent them from drying and losing their seal.
The machine 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 aspect when the gear 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 can’t be axle-driven by the result shaft (irreversibility), it is almost difficult to meet total irreversibility conditions, because of external elements such as for example vibrations, etc. For this reason, when the application requires total irreversibility, it is advisable to utilize exterior brakes with enough capacity to avoid slipping.
It could be said that the circumstances under which irreversibility can occur are the following:
• Efficiency < 0,55 (see table of specialized features).
This sort of gear reducer will get a permanent lubrication, so it really does not need any kind of maintenance.
The lubrication of this gear reducer type is continuous and comes as standard, with high quality refined oil which includes antirust and antiwear products with Fe, Cu and alloy protectors that has quality level CLP DIN 51517-3, FGZ level 12, AP GL-4, US 224, AGMA 250-04; for that reason its maintenance isn’t needed.
High reduction gear
Worm and wheel equipment pairings provide large acceleration decrease ratios with only 1 gear 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 this products. Another benefit of the Worm and Wheel gear pairings is the low level noise they produce. Some drawbacks will be the general low efficiency and the fact that they generate high temperature.
Advantage 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 fact that the metallic fibrous structure is not cut.
2) The top hardness after frosty rolling is increased by 1.2 to 1 1.3 times in comparison to the hardness of the initial materials, and the hardness of the helicoid surface increases to around HB240 to 260.
3) Cold rolled worms are ideal for miniature gear applications since this could be rotated smoothly without damaging the worm wheels crafted from POM or other soft materials.
4) Because of the implementation of the cold rolling method, the helicoid surface area of EP-Worm (M0.5 to 2.0) comes away with a mirror like finish. Thus, EP-Precision Cold Rolled Worms give a smooth operation and long-term durability.
Worm gears are made of a worm and a gear (sometimes referred to as a worm wheel), with nonparallel, non-intersecting shafts oriented 90 degrees to each other. The worm is analogous to a screw with a V-type thread, and the apparatus is certainly analogous to a spur gear. The worm is normally the driving component, with the worm’s thread advancing one’s teeth of the gear.
Like a ball screw, the worm in a worm gear might have a single start or multiple starts – meaning that there are multiple threads, or helicies, on the worm. For a single-start worm, each full change (360 degrees) of the worm advances the equipment 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 apparatus, divided by the number of begins on the worm. (This is different from almost every other types of gears, where in fact the gear reduction is definitely a function of the diameters of the two 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 therefore, warmth), the worm and equipment are constructed with dissimilar metals – for example, the worm may be made of hardened metal and the gear made of bronze or aluminum.
Although the sliding contact decreases efficiency, it provides extremely quiet operation. (The use of dissimilar metals for the worm and equipment also contributes to quiet operation.) This makes worm gears suitable for use where noise should be minimized, such as in elevators. In addition, the use of a softer materials for the gear implies that it can absorb shock loads, like those skilled in large equipment or crushing machines.
The primary advantage of worm gears is their ability to provide high reduction ratios and correspondingly high torque multiplication. They may also be used as rate reducers in low- to medium-speed applications. And, because their reduction ratio is based on the number of gear teeth by itself, they are more compact than other styles of gears. Like fine-pitch business lead screws, worm gears are usually self-locking, making them ideal for hoisting and lifting applications.
Worms & Worm Gears
EP Gear’s worms and worm gears provide an effective answer for power tranny applications requiring high-ratio swiftness reduction in a restricted space using right angle (90°), nonintersecting shafts. When properly used, worms and worm gears supply the smoothest, quietest type of gearing.
Because the effectiveness of a worm equipment drive depends on the business lead angle and quantity of starts on the worm – and because increased effectiveness is always a goal, the ratio should be kept as low as possible. To run properly, worms and worm gears used together will need to have the same diametral pitch and threads.
