Right-angle Planetary Gearboxes

Right-angle Planetary Gearboxes

Nidec® Planetary Gearboxes EV series show excellent versatility combined with very high quality; certified by a manufacturing process that includes constant checks of each component, and final tests of the complete product for angular backlash, noise, back-drive resistance and slip resistance. Through the use of software optimized helical gearing, a superior tooth hardening process, and extremely close machining tolerances, we can offer an optimum power density which will satisfy the highest dynamic and precision requirements. Nidec® gearboxes are interchangeable with most of the gearboxes on the market.

The Nidec® right-angle equivalent to the VRL series, the EVL provides the customer with an excellent solution when space and clearance are a serious limitation. For a right-angle solution, the EVL Series is an intelligent choice providing impressive precision and durability at an exceptional value. Using a 1:1 spiral bevel gear for the right-angle connection, a 6 arc/min. backlash rating can be achieved by the EVL series at 2 stage reduction ratios

 

This gearbox series is the right-angle version of the VRB, offering a compact configuration and output design that provides an OEM with maximum versatility. The through-bolt flange design at the output makes it much easier to assemble the reducer onto machinery. A 1:1 spiral bevel gear for the right-angle connection maintains good positional accuracy at ratios ranging from 3:1 – 100:1.The EVB units will have a minimum backlash of 4 arc-min. and maximum loads approaching 600 NM. Equipment manufacturers building custom assembly automation systems will find the flexibility and space-saving features of the EVB an ideal fit for their unique projects. The EVB provides an excellent option when performance, space, and cost all equally impact your reducer selection.

 

For applications that require exceptional load handling capabilities in an optimum foot print, the EVS series is the performance leader. The right-angle equivalent to the VRS, the EVS internal design provides an extremely smooth running, quiet gearhead, even when challenging static forces are applied. The tapered roller bearings at the output side allow the EVS to handle larger radial and thrust load forces than the typical planetary gearbox. The EVS series is a high precision right-angle gearhead having a maximum 4 arc/min backlash rating, while handling a peak output torque reaching 600 Nm. The series is commonly utilized in custom assembly applications or in robotic tooling. Very low backlash and off-set load handling capabilities are critical.

 

The EVT series sets the new standard for applications requiring extremely high-torque ratings and rigidity. The compact design and hub-style output is ideal for equipment requiring high speed, high precision indexing movement. The right-angle equivalent to the VRT. EVT internal design provides an extremely smooth running, quiet gearhead, even when challenging static forces are applied. The tapered roller bearings at the output side allow the EVT to handle larger radial and thrust load forces than the typical planetary gearbox. The EVT series is a high precision right-angle gearhead having a maximum 4 arc/min. one stage and 6 arc/min. 2 stage backlash rating. The series is commonly utilized in custom assembly applications or in robotic tooling. Very low backlash and off-set load handling capabilities are critical
The torsional stiffness and the low backlash of the planetary gearing combine to provide outstanding positioning accuracy.
EVT offers a high performance robust planetary solution for OEM customers. The EVT reducer is often used for larger indexing applications and dial tables commonly found in packaging and filling equipment and assembly automation systems.
