EP Gear’s 700 Series high-strength bronze worm gear is straddle mounted between heavy-duty tapered roller bearings to increase thrust and overhung load capacities, sizes 713-760.
Our 700 Series’ high-strength steel result shaft assures convenience of high torque and overhung loads.
Pipe plugs allow easy fill, level, and drain in any mounting position.
The 700 Series’ super-finished oil-seal diameters on both input and output shafts extend seal lifestyle.
Both 2D and 3D CAD drawings can be found in our eCatalog.
Correct angle gearboxes (worm and planetary) are durable and built for 90° turns. Inline reducers (parallel shaft and planetary) are an ideal match for motors with high input speeds, or when gearmotor efficiency is important.

RIGHT ANGLE REDUCERS
WORM GEAR REDUCER
EP’s worm gear reducers are designed with a hollow bore and allow for a corner change with optional dual output. The reducers come in 12 ratios which range from 5:1 to 100:1, with non-back-drivable ratios 30:1 and higher. Our right angle gearboxes were created with five mounting choices providing flexibility when incorporating the reducer into product.
RIGHT ANGLE BEVEL GEARBOX
The proper angle bevel gearbox combines the features of our right angle worm and planetary inline reducers. With a solid and efficient correct angle configuration, our right angle planetary gearboxes offer a robust solution. The right angle bevel gearbox comes in 18 ratios which range from 5:1 to 1000:1, in fact it is back-drivable at all ratios.
I-SERIES PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our I-Series small planetary gearbox configurations supply the smallest footprint and quietest procedure of our acceleration reducers. These gearboxes are designed to manage varying loads with small backlash. With framework sizes 52cm, 62cm, and 81cm, 12 ratios ranging from 5:1 to 308:1, we have a solution to suit your needs. Our 52 frame size is also available with plastic-type material gears for noise-delicate applications.
INLINE PLANETARY GEARBOX
Our inline planetary gearbox configurations supply the highest performance and best result torque of all our rate reducers. These gearboxes are made to deal with varying loads with small 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 fit your needs.
PARALLEL SHAFT GEARBOX
Parallel shaft gearboxes will be the best choice for continuous duty applications. Their gear cluster design provides an effective method for dissipating temperature. Parallel shaft gearboxes possess the shortest amount of our inline equipment reducer options therefore they work well in environments with limited space. Our parallel shaft gear reducers offer an affordable drop-in alternative solution for most small parallel shaft gearmotors.
Wormwheel gearboxes pass several names, including 90-degree gearboxes, right position gearboxes, acceleration 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 called a worm, meshes with a worm equipment. These gears are usually created from bronze and the worms are metal or stainless steel.
While worm gears act like a spur equipment, the worm gearboxes are considerably smaller than other gear reduction boxes. A primary benefit of worm equipment reducers is that they create an output that’s 90° from the input and can be utilized to transmit higher torque or reduce rotational speed. Most often, a worm gearbox provides right hand threads; to improve the path of the result, a left-hands thread worm gearbox is necessary.
