Worm and Worm Gears units transfer motion between nonintersecting right angle shafts. They will be the most compact tiny precision gears system available, and also the quietest and smoothest running. A worm and worm gears establish can provide a higher reduction ratio in a very small space.
EP has been production worm and wheel equipment systems for over 30 years. We offer worms and worm gears units in various inches and metric sizes and with a number of pitch, tooth count, and hub options. Our precision ground stainless steel worm and wheels and phosphor bronze worm gears provide the best accuracy, smoothest procedure, and longest working your life.

EP’ POWERFUL Worm Gear Systems
A worm is configured similarly to a machine screw, but with teeth made to mesh with the teeth of a worm wheel. These tiny precision gears may possess solitary or multiple threads (named starts). With each revolution, a single-start worm will approach the associated worm wheel by one tooth; worms with multiple begins will move the mating worm gear a corresponding number of tooth with each revolution. (e.g., a 2-commence worm will move the worm wheel two pearly whites per revolution.)
Standard worm gear worm wheels feature direct, helical-cut teeth and offer only one point of contact with the worm. EP presents “throated” worm wheels with curved, helical-cut tooth whose curves meet the radius of the worm itself. Throated worm wheels give a much greater speak to area, which vastly increases load potential and longevity.
