Mechanical drives take supplied torque and may increase or reduce that torque predicated on application. Also rate is increased or reduced in proportion index G – Equipment BOXES – on blue – smallto the speed reduction ratio. Ever-Power includes a full type of gearboxes and quickness reducers, and the components had a need to build them, in a wide variety of standard ratios and shaft options and also custom designs.
Helical, bevel, and miter gear boxes offer the options of swiftness 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 gear boxes aren’t used as swiftness increasers. The instances are molded glass-filled material making them extremely rugged and resistant to corrosive environments. They can be found in a wide range of ratios and are built with right hands or left hand worm gears. The output shafts could be solid or hollow, and load capability is unaffected by direction and rotation.
Worm gear speed reducers are comprised of a screw (the worm) that drives a wheel (helical gear) or one enveloping wheel and 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 movement into intermittent rotary motion. The rotating drive wheel has a pin that gets to into a slot of the driven wheel advancing it by one step and a blocking disc that locks the driven wheel constantly in place between steps.
Compact design is among the key terms of the typical gearboxes of the BJ-Series. Further optimisation may be accomplished by using adapted gearboxes or particular gearboxes.
Our worm gearboxes and actuators are extremely quiet. This is because of the very smooth running of the worm gear combined with the usage 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. Therefore the general noise degree of our gearbox is definitely 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 producing the incorporation of the gearbox significantly simpler and more compact.The worm gearbox can be an angle gear. This is often an edge for incorporation into constructions.
Strong bearings in solid housing
The output shaft of the BJ worm gearbox is very firmly embedded in the apparatus house and is ideal for immediate suspension for wheels, movable arms and other parts rather than having 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 used 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 made of GG-25 cast-iron, and are available for all kinds of gear-reducer. This make sure they are perform efficiently under stressed circumstances, vibrations or any type of setback that cannot be avoided during the assembly
The worm-gear is made from 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 the two parts having top quality, excellent overall performance and low noise levels have been achived.
The output shaft is hollow, though it is possible 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 on the market.
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 exists like answer to the ask for of our costumers since, upon mounting greater bearings in the result, bears higher axial loads that its analogous one in the MF-62 series. The others of technical characteristic are similar to the its analogous in the size 62.
In order to create a gear reducer and also to make it work efficiently, the following instructions must be taken into account:
It should be fixed on a set 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 gear reducer needed to be painted, the oil seals must be covered to avoid 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 focus on this element when the apparatus reducer result shaft is driven instead of being a driver. Bearing in mind that one of the features of this worm-gear reducer is the fact that can’t be axle-powered by the result shaft (irreversibility), it really is almost impossible to meet total irreversibility conditions, due to external elements such as for example vibrations, etc. For this reason, when the application form requires total irreversibility, it really is advisable to utilize external brakes with enough power to avoid slipping.
It may be said that the conditions under which irreversibility can happen are the following:
• Efficiency < 0,55 (see table of technical features).
This sort of gear reducer is provided with a permanent lubrication, so that it will not need any kind of maintenance.
The lubrication of the gear reducer type is constant and comes as standard, with top quality refined oil which includes 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 isn’t needed.
High reduction gear
Worm and wheel gear pairings provide large speed decrease ratios with only one equipment pairing in a far more compact space when compared with other styles of gears. We offer up to maximum ratio of 100:1 with this products. Another advantage of the Worm and Wheel gear pairings may be the low level noise they produce. Some disadvantages are the general low efficiency and the actual fact that they generate high temperature.
Benefit of EP’s Worm Gears – “Frosty rolled Worm Gears”
1) The hardness of the helicoid surface has been achieved by function hardening when the frosty 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 top hardness after cold rolling is increased by 1.2 to at least one 1.3 times when compared with the hardness of the initial material, and the hardness of the helicoid surface increases to around HB240 to 260.
3) Frosty 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) Due to 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 provide a smooth procedure and long term durability.
Worm gears are made of a worm and a gear (sometimes known as a worm wheel), with non-parallel, nonintersecting shafts oriented 90 degrees to one another. The worm is certainly analogous to a screw with a V-type thread, and the gear is certainly analogous to a spur gear. The worm is typically the driving component, with the worm’s thread advancing the teeth of the gear.
Like 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 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-start worm, the gear reduction equals the amount of teeth on the apparatus, divided by the number of starts on the worm. (This is different from almost every other types of gears, where the gear reduction can be a function of the diameters of both 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 actions causes friction and high temperature, which limits the efficiency of worm gears to 30 to 50 percent. In order to minimize friction (and therefore, high temperature), the worm and gear are constructed with dissimilar metals – for instance, the worm may be made of hardened metal and the gear made of bronze or aluminum.
Although the sliding contact decreases efficiency, it provides very quiet operation. (The utilization of dissimilar metals for the worm and gear also contributes to quiet procedure.) This makes worm gears ideal for use where noise should be minimized, such as for example in elevators. Furthermore, the usage of a softer materials for the gear means that it could absorb shock loads, like those experienced in heavy equipment or crushing machines.
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-acceleration applications. And, because their decrease ratio is founded on the amount of gear teeth alone, they are more compact than other styles of gears. Like fine-pitch business 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 an effective answer for power transmitting applications requiring high-ratio rate reduction in a limited space using correct angle (90°), non-intersecting shafts. When properly used, worms and worm gears provide the smoothest, quietest form of gearing.
Because the effectiveness of a worm gear drive depends on the lead angle and amount of starts on the worm – and because increased performance is always a goal, the ratio ought to be kept as low as possible. To run properly, worms and worm gears used together must have the same diametral pitch and threads.
