An epicyclic gear train (also called planetary gear) contains two gears mounted so that the centre of one equipment revolves around the center of the additional. A carrier connects the centres of both gears and rotates to carry one gear, called the earth gear or world pinion, around the additional, called sunlight gear or sunlight wheel. The planet and sunlight gears mesh to ensure that their pitch circles roll without slide. A spot on the pitch circle of the planet gear traces an epicycloid curve. In this simplified case, sunlight gear is fixed and the planetary equipment(s) roll around the sun gear.
An epicyclic gear train can be assembled therefore the planet equipment rolls on the inside of the pitch circle of a set, outer gear band, or ring gear, sometimes named an annular equipment. In this case, the curve traced by a spot on the pitch circle of the planet is a hypocycloid.
The mixture of epicycle gear trains with a planet engaging both a sun gear and a ring gear is named a planetary gear train. In this instance, the ring gear is generally fixed and sunlight gear is driven.
Epicyclic gears get their name from their earliest software, that was the modelling of the movements of the planets in the heavens. Believing the planets, as everything in the heavens, to become perfect, they could just travel in ideal circles, but their motions as viewed from Earth cannot end up being reconciled with circular motion. At around 500 BC, the Greeks developed the thought of epicycles, of circles travelling on the circular orbits. With this theory Claudius Ptolemy in the Almagest in 148 AD could predict planetary orbital paths. The Antikythera Mechanism, circa 80 BC, acquired gearing which was in a position to approximate the moon’s elliptical path through the heavens, and also to correct for the nine-year precession of that path. (The Greeks would have seen it much less elliptical, but rather as epicyclic motion.)
EP, a versatile and multi-use alternative, is not merely another simple planetary gearbox. EP high-tech planetary reducer is definitely a genuine integrated concept, including several functions combined collectively to give you a complete sub-assembly to the most demanding machines.
EP is the best high-tech servo-reducer, specially dedicated to designs requiring:

ISO 9409-1 result drive flange for installation pinions, pulleys, couplings, etc.
High input speeds
Superior acceleration and remarkable torque density
Minimum backlash (1 – 3 arc-minutes)
In-Line or proper angle arrangements
This versatile design helps it be easy for design engineers to find precise solutions to the most demanding applications.
Parallel shaft Gearmotors
The S Series design produces this gearmotor particularly effective for blower applications, pump and fan. To meet the needs of clients in these sectors, the S Series can be available in the foot or flange versions and may be completed with an array of electric motors entirely made by EP. Asynchronous motors both IEC and compact (B-BE-BX/M-ME-MX), servomotors (BMD) and reluctance motors (BSR) could be coupled with the S Series: with the breadth of its portfolio, EP provides buyers with a superb balance of dynamics, expense effectiveness and efficiency.
