Mechanical drives take supplied torque and could increase or reduce that torque predicated on application. Also velocity is increased or decreased in proportion index G – Equipment BOXES – on blue – smallto the speed decrease ratio. Ever-Power has a full line of gearboxes and swiftness reducers, and the components needed to build them, in a wide variety of standard ratios and shaft choices as well as custom designs.
Helical, bevel, and miter gear boxes provide options of speed reducers or acceleration increasers, and could be powered in either direction. All Ever-Power worm equipment speed reducers and correct angle drives are produced for powerful in a large spectrum of applications. Typically worm equipment boxes are not used as acceleration increasers. The instances are molded glass-filled material making them extremely tough and resistant to corrosive conditions. They are offered in a wide selection of ratios and are built with right hand or left hand worm gears. The result shafts may be solid or hollow, and load capability 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 are used in mechanical applications ranging from conveyors to workout devices to robots.
Geneva mechanisms and assemblies are usually used to transform continuous rotary motion into intermittent rotary movement. The rotating drive wheel has a pin that gets to into a slot of the powered wheel advancing it by one step and a blocking disc that locks the driven 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 by using adapted gearboxes or special gearboxes.
Our worm gearboxes and actuators are extremely quiet. This is because of the very smooth working of the worm equipment combined with the utilization of cast iron and high precision on component manufacturing and assembly. In connection with our precision gearboxes, we take extra treatment of any sound which can be interpreted as a murmur from the apparatus. So the general noise level of our gearbox is reduced to an absolute minimum.
On the worm gearbox the input shaft and output shaft are perpendicular to each other. This frequently proves to become a decisive advantage making the incorporation of the gearbox substantially simpler and smaller sized.The worm gearbox can be an angle gear. This is often an advantage for incorporation into constructions.
Strong 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 gear ratios,EP-Gear’s worm gearboxes will provide a self-locking impact, which in many situations can be used as brake or as extra security. Also spindle gearboxes with a trapezoidal spindle are self-locking, making them ideal for an array 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 so are available for all sorts of gear-reducer. This make them perform effectively under stressed conditions, vibrations or any type of setback that cannot be avoided during 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. Because of the mechanical work of these two parts having high quality, excellent efficiency and low noise amounts 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 best gear reducer available.
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 demand of our costumers since, upon mounting higher bearings in the result, bears better axial loads that its analogous one in the MF-62 series. The rest of technical feature are identical to the its analogous in the size 62.
In order to setup a gear reducer and to make it work efficiently, the following instructions must be taken into account:
It must 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 apparatus reducer had to be painted, the oil seals must 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 smart to pay attention to this factor when the apparatus reducer output shaft is driven instead of being a driver. Considering that among the features of this worm-gear reducer is the fact that can’t be axle-driven by the result shaft (irreversibility), it is almost difficult to meet total irreversibility conditions, due to external factors such as vibrations, etc. That is why, when the application requires total irreversibility, it is advisable to utilize exterior brakes with enough power to avoid slipping.
It could be said that the circumstances under which irreversibility can happen are the following:
• Efficiency < 0,55 (see table of technical features).
This type of gear reducer will get a permanent lubrication, so that it 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 has antirust and antiwear products with Fe, Cu and alloy protectors which has level of quality 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 swiftness decrease ratios with only 1 equipment pairing in a more compact space when compared with other types of gears. We offer up to a maximum ratio of 100:1 with our products. Another benefit of the Worm and Wheel equipment pairings may be the low level sound they produce. Some disadvantages are the general low efficiency and the actual fact that they generate temperature.
Benefit of EP’s Worm Gears – “Frosty rolled Worm Gears”
1) The hardness of the helicoid surface area has been attained by function hardening when the cold rolling was performed, providing Worm gears with better mechanical properties than machined worms due to reality that the metallic fibrous framework has not been cut.
2) The top hardness after cold rolling is increased by 1.2 to 1 1.3 times in comparison to the hardness of the original materials, and the hardness of the helicoid surface increases to around HB240 to 260.
3) Chilly rolled worms are ideal for miniature equipment applications since this could be rotated smoothly without damaging the worm wheels crafted from POM or various other soft materials.
4) Because of the implementation of this cold rolling technique, the helicoid surface of EP-Worm (M0.5 to 2.0) comes out with a mirror like finish. Thus, EP-Precision Cold Rolled Worms give a smooth procedure and long term durability.
Worm gears are constructed of a worm and a gear (sometimes known as a worm wheel), with nonparallel, non-intersecting shafts oriented 90 degrees to each other. The worm can be analogous to a screw with a V-type thread, and the gear is usually analogous to a spur gear. The worm is typically the generating 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 complete convert (360 degrees) of the worm advances the equipment by one tooth. Therefore a gear with 24 teeth provides a gear reduced amount of 24:1. For a multi-start worm, the apparatus reduction equals the number of teeth on the apparatus, divided by the amount of starts on the worm. (That is not the same as most other types of gears, where in fact the gear reduction is certainly a function of the diameters of the two components.)
The meshing of the worm and the gear 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 effectiveness of worm gears to 30 to 50 percent. In order to minimize friction (and therefore, warmth), the worm and gear are made from dissimilar metals – for example, the worm may be produced of hardened steel and the apparatus made of bronze or aluminum.
Although the sliding contact decreases efficiency, it provides very quiet operation. (The usage of dissimilar metals for the worm and gear also contributes to quiet operation.) This makes worm gears suitable for use where noise should be minimized, such as for example in elevators. Furthermore, the usage of a softer material for the gear means that it could absorb shock loads, like those skilled in large equipment or crushing machines.
The primary benefit of worm gears is their ability to provide high reduction ratios and correspondingly high torque multiplication. They can also be utilized as swiftness reducers in low- to moderate-speed applications. And, because their reduction ratio is based on the number of gear teeth alone, they are smaller sized than other styles of gears. Like fine-pitch lead screws, worm gears are typically self-locking, making them well suited for hoisting and lifting applications.
Worms & Worm Gears
EP Gear’s worms and worm gears provide an effective answer for power transmission applications requiring high-ratio speed reduction in a restricted space using right angle (90°), nonintersecting shafts. When properly used, worms and worm gears supply the smoothest, quietest form of gearing.
Because the performance of a worm gear drive depends on the business lead angle and number of starts on the worm – and because increased efficiency is always a goal, the ratio ought to be kept only possible. To run properly, worms and worm gears utilized together will need to have the same diametral pitch and threads.
