FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Ever-Power develops and manufactures cycloidal gear boxes to circular off the product portfolio. In drive technology, especially in the field of device machinery, automation and robotics, these small designed, high transmitting precision gear boxes are used especially to meet the highest demands for stiffness, functionality and efficiency. In addition to the constantly extended standard range, these cycloidal precision equipment boxes can be adapted to customer requirements upon request.
Capable of handling larger “shock” loads (>500%) of rating compared to worm, helical, etc.
High reduction ratios and torque density in a compact dimensional footprint
Exceptional “built-in” overhung load carrying capability
High efficiency (>95%) per reduction stage
Minimal reflected inertia to engine for longer service life
Just ridiculously rugged as all get-out
The overall Ever-Power design proves to be extremely durable, and it requires minimal maintenance following installation. The Ever-Power may be the most dependable reducer in the commercial marketplace, and it is a perfect match for applications in weighty industry such as oil & gas, major and secondary steel processing, commercial food production, metal slicing and forming machinery, wastewater treatment, extrusion products, among others.

The Ever-Power 3000 and our related products that make use of cycloidal gearing technology deliver the the majority of robust solution in the most compact footprint. The main power train is comprised of an eccentric roller bearing that drives a wheel around a set of inner pins, keeping the decrease high and the rotational inertia low. The wheel incorporates a curved tooth profile instead of the more traditional involute tooth profile, which removes shear forces at any stage of contact. This style introduces compression forces, rather than those shear forces that would exist with an involute gear mesh. That provides a number of efficiency benefits such as for example high shock load capability (>500% of rating), minimal friction and wear, lower mechanical service factors, among many others. The cycloidal design also has a sizable output shaft bearing period, which provides exceptional overhung load capabilities without requiring any extra expensive components.
A cycloidal drive has some similarities to both planetary gearing and strain-wave gears. In the image shown, the green shaft may be the input and its rotation causes an eccentric motion in the yellow-colored cycloidal disk. The cycloidal disk is usually targeted at a stationary outer ring, represented in the animation by the outer band of grey segments. Its motion is used in the cycloidal gearbox purple result shaft via rollers or pins that user interface to the holes in the disk. Like planetary gearing, the output shaft rotates in the contrary direction to the insight shaft. Because the person parts are well-appropriate to 3D printing, this opens the door to easily prototyping customized designs and gearing ratios.
