The EVL planetary gearbox is a perfect solution for OEM equipment such as packaging, assembly automation, and any advanced conveyor systems implementing sortation or multi-speed/positioning.  The EVL series gearheads are offered in a variety of frame sizes and ratios, and they can handle maximum loads approaching 600 NM.  The EVL series gearheads are available in round face (as shown) or square mounting flanges.

Shimpo EVL Series

Shimpo EVL Series

The 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.  Features include:

  1. Space-saving features, motor can be located at a 90 degree position from the reducer providing a more compact footprint
  2. High rigidity and torque, capacity are achieved by using uncaged needle roller bearings
  3. Adapter-bushing connection, enable a simple, effective attachment to most servo motors
  4. No leakage through the seal, high viscosity, anti-separation grease does not liquefy and does not migrate away from the gears
  5. Maintenance-free, no need to replace the grease for the life of the unit. The reducer can be positioned in any orientation

Why are Hypoid Gearboxes Ideal for Right Angle Applications? June 3, 2014

This example will compare a traditional planetary bevel gearbox (left) with a hypoid gearbox (right), in a 5:1 gear reduction ratio.

Planetary Bevel Gearbox
By construction, a planetary bevel gearbox is the combination of an input bevel gear stage and an output planetary gear stage.  In order to achieve any gear reduction ratio, this type of gearbox always requires two or three gear stages.  In this example, the first stage is a 1:1 bevel gear ratio and the second stage is a 5:1 planetary gear ratio.  For a 3,000 RPM application, the motor speed is continued throughout the entire first gear stage, which means the input bearings and seals, gears, and output bearings and seals are all rotating at 3,000 RPM.  The actual reduction doesn’t occur until the planetary gear stage.  Higher speeds throughout the gearbox means higher heat and can also result in a 50% service life de-rating for continuous applications.

Hypoid Gearbox

A hypoid gearbox on the other hand can achieve up to a 15:1 ratio with only a single gear stage.  In this 3,000 RPM application, the motor speed is immediately reduced to the final reduction speed of 600 RPM which is ideal for the gears, seals, bearings, and shaft.  A lower speed means less heat, which is important to maximizing the life and load carrying capabilities of the output bearings in a gearbox.  GAM’s Dyna Series hypoid gearbox has a 30,000 hour service life rating which is 50% more than a comparable planetary bevel gearbox.  In addition to the performance advantages of using a hypoid gearbox, there is also a substantial space saving benefit. In the example above, GAM’s hypoid gearbox is 46% more compact than the planetary bevel gearbox.
