Mechanical drives take supplied torque and may increase or reduce that torque based on application. Also speed is increased or reduced in proportion index G – GEAR BOXES – on blue – smallto the speed reduction ratio. Ever-Power includes a full line of gearboxes and velocity reducers, and the components had a need to build them, in a wide variety of regular ratios and shaft options and also custom designs.
Helical, bevel, and miter equipment boxes offer the options of quickness reducers or speed increasers, and could be driven in either direction. All Ever-Power worm gear speed reducers and correct angle drives are manufactured for powerful in a large spectrum of applications. Typically worm equipment boxes aren’t used as quickness increasers. The cases are molded glass-filled material making them extremely durable and resistant to corrosive conditions. They can be found in an array of ratios and are equipped with right hand or left hands worm gears. The result shafts may be solid or hollow, and load capability is unaffected by direction and rotation.
Worm gear quickness reducers are made up of a screw (the worm) that drives a wheel (helical gear) or solitary enveloping wheel and so are found in mechanical applications which range from conveyors to workout devices to robots.
Geneva mechanisms and assemblies are typically used to transform continuous rotary motion into intermittent rotary motion. The rotating drive wheel includes a pin that reaches into a slot of the driven wheel advancing it by one stage and a blocking disc that locks the powered wheel in position between steps.
Compact design is among the key words of the standard gearboxes of the BJ-Series. Further optimisation may be accomplished by using adapted gearboxes or unique 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 component manufacturing and assembly. Regarding the our precision gearboxes, we take extra care of any sound which can be interpreted as a murmur from the gear. So the general noise degree of our gearbox is usually reduced to a complete minimum.
On the worm gearbox the input shaft and output shaft are perpendicular to each other. This often proves to become a decisive advantage making the incorporation of the gearbox substantially simpler and more compact.The worm gearbox can be 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 very firmly embedded in the apparatus house and is well suited for direct suspension for wheels, movable arms and other parts rather than needing to build a separate suspension.
For larger equipment ratios,EP-Gear’s worm gearboxes will provide a self-locking impact, which in many situations can be utilized as brake or as extra security. Also spindle gearboxes with a trapezoidal spindle are self-locking, making them perfect for a wide range 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 sorts of gear-reducer. This make sure they are perform effectively under stressed circumstances, vibrations or any type of setback that cannot be avoided through 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 these two parts having top quality, excellent functionality and low sound amounts have been achived.
The output shaft is hollow, although it can be done to adapt a solid shaft.
The oil seals made of NITRILE BUTADIENE, according to DIN 3760, top 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 provides like reference size 63 and is born like answer to the demand of our costumers since, upon mounting better bearings in the output, bears higher 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 set surface in order 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 needed to be painted, the 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 need an ISO H7 or h6 margin for the hollow shaft.
It is smart 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-equipment reducer is the fact that cannot be axle-powered by the output shaft (irreversibility), it is almost unattainable to meet up total irreversibility conditions, because of external factors such as for example vibrations, etc. That is why, when the application form requires total irreversibility, it really is advisable to utilize external brakes with enough capacity to avoid slipping.
It may be said that the circumstances under which irreversibility can happen 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 this gear reducer type is constant and comes as standard, with high quality refined oil which has antirust and antiwear products with Fe, Cu and alloy protectors which has quality level 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 velocity decrease ratios with only one equipment pairing in a more compact space when compared with other types of gears. You can expect 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 will be the general low performance and the fact that they generate heat.
Benefit of EP’s Worm Gears – “Cool rolled Worm Gears”
1) The hardness of the helicoid surface area has been achieved by function hardening when the chilly rolling was performed, providing Worm gears with better mechanical properties than machined worms because of fact that the metallic fibrous structure is not 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 original material, 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 is often rotated smoothly without damaging the worm wheels made out of POM or various other soft materials.
4) Due to the implementation of this cold rolling method, the helicoid surface of EP-Worm (M0.5 to 2.0) comes away with a mirror like finish. Thus, EP-Precision Frosty Rolled Worms provide 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 non-parallel, nonintersecting shafts oriented 90 degrees to each other. The worm is usually analogous to a screw with a V-type thread, and the gear is certainly analogous to a spur gear. The worm is normally the driving component, with the worm’s thread advancing the teeth of the gear.
Such as a ball screw, the worm in a worm gear may 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 advances the gear by one tooth. Therefore a gear with 24 teeth will provide a gear reduced amount of 24:1. For a multi-begin worm, the apparatus reduction equals the amount of teeth on the apparatus, divided by the number of starts on the worm. (This is not the same as almost every other types of gears, where 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 action causes friction and temperature, which limits the efficiency of worm gears to 30 to 50 percent. To be able to minimize friction (and for that reason, warmth), the worm and equipment are made from dissimilar metals – for instance, the worm could be made of hardened steel and the gear manufactured from bronze or aluminum.
Although the sliding contact reduces efficiency, it provides very quiet operation. (The utilization of dissimilar metals for the worm and equipment also plays a part in quiet operation.) This makes worm gears ideal for use where noise should be minimized, such as in elevators. Furthermore, 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 used as acceleration reducers in low- to medium-speed applications. And, because their decrease ratio is based on the amount of gear teeth alone, they are more compact than other styles of gears. Like fine-pitch lead screws, worm gears are usually self-locking, which makes them well suited 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 limited space using correct angle (90°), nonintersecting shafts. When properly applied, worms and worm gears provide the smoothest, quietest kind of gearing.
Because the efficiency of a worm equipment drive depends on the business lead angle and quantity of begins on the worm – and because increased efficiency is always an objective, 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.
