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 compact designed, high transmission precision gear boxes are used especially to meet the highest demands for stiffness, performance and efficiency. In addition to the constantly extended regular range, these cycloidal precision gear boxes can be adapted to consumer requirements upon request.
Capable of handling larger “shock” loads (>500%) of rating in comparison 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 entire Ever-Power design proves to be extremely durable, and it needs minimal maintenance following installation. The Ever-Power is the most cycloidal gearbox reliable reducer in the commercial marketplace, in fact it is a perfect fit for applications in heavy industry such as oil & gas, primary and secondary steel processing, industrial food production, metal trimming and forming machinery, wastewater treatment, extrusion tools, among others.

The Ever-Power 3000 and our related products that use cycloidal gearing technology deliver the the majority of robust solution in the the majority of compact footprint. The primary power train is made up of an eccentric roller bearing that drives a wheel around a couple of internal pins, keeping the reduction high and the rotational inertia low. The wheel incorporates a curved tooth profile rather than the more traditional involute tooth profile, which eliminates shear forces at any stage of contact. This design introduces compression forces, rather than those shear forces that could can be found with an involute equipment mesh. That provides numerous functionality benefits such as high shock load capacity (>500% of ranking), minimal friction and use, lower mechanical service factors, among numerous others. The cycloidal design also has a sizable output shaft bearing span, which gives 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 demonstrated, the green shaft may be the input and its rotation causes an eccentric motion in the yellow cycloidal disk. The cycloidal disk is certainly targeted at a stationary outer band, represented in the computer animation by the outer ring of grey segments. Its motion is transferred to the purple output shaft via rollers or pins that interface to the holes in the disk. Like planetary gearing, the result shaft rotates in the opposite direction to the input shaft. Because the individual parts are well-appropriate to 3D printing, this opens the entranceway to easily prototyping custom designs and gearing ratios.
