EJ Series

ej_series_picNIDEC-SHIMPO has been at the forefront of developing gear technology to fill the requirements of our customer base and has expanded its product offering to include a variety of precision worm gearboxes: our EJ Series. These servo grade gearheads are ideal for challenging motion control applications requiring an efficient, quiet and smooth running drive.

Three variants are offered to match a wide range of customer applications: EJP, EJH & EJM. Each series incorporates a globoidal worm gear mesh design resulting in optimal torque density, low backlash, high overload protection and high torsional rigidity in a compact space envelope. Mounting options including hollow shaft, flange mount and shrink disc provide the ultimate level of flexibility with various machine interfaces.

The EJ series is well suited for applications within the metal forming and general automation industries, but is also offered in a variety of wash down options to meet the demands of the food & beverage market. Please contact us for further details or applications assistance.

Planetary Reducer with Exceptional Positional Accuracy

vrt_nSHIMPO DRIVES is proud to announce the release of its new VRT series. The VRT series sets a new standard for servo motor gear reduction applications that require exceptional torsional rigidity and high positional accuracy. The hub-style output of the reducer has an ISO9409 mounting interface and provides superior flexibility in the mounting of pinions, pulleys, and turntables. The reducer is offered in seven different frame sizes and in a multitude of 1-stage and 2-stage ratios. The larger frame sizes include tapered roller bearings that have better radial and axial load handling characteristics than those bearing commonly utilized in competitor’s design, so improved ratings over those products within its competitive class.

With a backlash rating less than 3 arc-minutes and exceptional torque handling capabilities, the VRT is a high performance, compact, and robust solution for equipment manufacturers. The VRT is often used for larger indexing applications and dial tables, commonly found in metal forming, filling equipment, packaging machinery, and assembly automation systems.
