Our complete type of worms and worm gears could be ordered through the EP Gear Guaranteed Same Time Shipment Program for the fastest delivery possible.
90°, nonintersecting shaft applications answer highly specialized power tranny needs.
Our worm gears offer the smoothest, quietest form of gearing.
They offer high-ratio speed decrease in minimal spaces.
Their efficiency is easily increased by lowering ratios.
With some ratios, there is level of resistance to back driving.
Offered from 48 DP to 3 DP
Stocked as single, dual and quad start configurations
Because the performance of a worm equipment drive depends upon the lead angle and number of starts on the worm – and because increased performance is always a goal, the ratio should be kept as low as possible. To run correctly, worms and worm gears utilized together will need to have the same diametral pitch and threads.
Worms & Worm Gears
EP Gear’s worms and worm gears provide an effective answer for power tranny applications requiring high-ratio swiftness reduction in a restricted space using correct angle (90°), non-intersecting shafts. When properly used, worms and worm gears supply the smoothest, quietest form of gearing.
The primary advantage of worm gears is their ability to provide high reduction ratios and correspondingly high torque multiplication. They may also be used as speed reducers in low- to moderate-swiftness applications. And, because their decrease ratio is based on the amount of gear teeth only, they are smaller sized than other types of gears. Like fine-pitch business lead screws, worm gears are typically self-locking, which makes them perfect for hoisting and lifting applications.
worm gear box assembly is utilised to suit any type of daily routine.
