Our complete type of worms and worm gears could be ordered through the EP Gear Guaranteed Same Day time Shipment System for the quickest delivery possible.
90°, nonintersecting shaft applications answer highly specialized power transmitting needs.
Our worm gears offer the smoothest, quietest type of gearing.
They provide high-ratio speed reduction in minimal spaces.
Their efficiency is easily increased by reducing ratios.
With some ratios, there is level of resistance to back driving.
Available from 48 DP to 3 DP
Stocked as single, dual and quad start configurations
Because the effectiveness of a worm equipment drive depends upon the business lead angle and number of starts on the worm – and because increased effectiveness is always an objective, the ratio ought to be kept as low as possible. To run correctly, worms and worm gears used together will need to have the same diametral pitch and threads.
Worms & Worm Gears
EP Gear’s worms and worm gears provide a highly worm gear box assembly effective answer for power transmitting applications requiring high-ratio rate reduction in a limited space using correct angle (90°), non-intersecting shafts. When properly applied, worms and worm gears supply the smoothest, quietest form of gearing.
The primary benefit of worm gears is their capability to provide high reduction ratios and correspondingly high torque multiplication. They can also be utilized as acceleration reducers in low- to moderate-swiftness applications. And, because their reduction ratio is based on the number of gear teeth by itself, they are more compact than other types of gears. Like fine-pitch business lead screws, worm gears are usually self-locking, making them perfect for hoisting and lifting applications.
