FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Ever-Power develops and manufactures cycloidal gear boxes to circular off the product portfolio. In drive technology, especially in neuro-scientific tool machinery, automation and robotics, these compact designed, high tranny precision equipment boxes are used specifically to meet the highest demands for stiffness, cycloidal gearbox performance and efficiency. In addition to the constantly extended standard range, these cycloidal precision gear boxes could be adapted to consumer requirements upon request.
Able to handle larger “shock” loads (>500%) of rating in comparison to worm, helical, etc.
High reduction ratios and torque density in a concise dimensional footprint
Exceptional “built-in” overhung load carrying capability
High efficiency (>95%) per reduction stage
Minimal reflected inertia to electric motor for longer service life
Just ridiculously rugged since all get-out
The entire 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 industrial marketplace, in fact it is a perfect suit for applications in heavy industry such as for example oil & gas, major and secondary steel processing, industrial food production, metal reducing and forming machinery, wastewater treatment, extrusion apparatus, among others.
Cycloidal advantages over various other styles of gearing;

The Ever-Power 3000 and our related products that use cycloidal gearing technology deliver the most robust solution in the many compact footprint. The primary 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 includes a curved tooth profile rather than the more traditional involute tooth profile, which removes shear forces at any point of contact. This style introduces compression forces, rather than those shear forces that could can be found with an involute equipment mesh. That provides several overall performance benefits such as high shock load capability (>500% of rating), minimal friction and put on, lower mechanical service factors, among numerous others. The cycloidal style also has a sizable output shaft bearing period, which provides exceptional overhung load capabilities without requiring any additional expensive components.
A cycloidal drive has some similarities to both planetary gearing and strain-wave gears. In the image demonstrated, the green shaft is the input and its own rotation causes an eccentric motion in the yellow cycloidal disk. The cycloidal disk is usually targeted at a stationary outer ring, represented in the animation by the outer ring of grey segments. Its motion is transferred to the purple output 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 individual parts are well-suitable to 3D printing, this opens the entranceway to easily prototyping custom designs and gearing ratios.
