worms and worm gears provide an effective solution for power transmitting applications requiring high-ratio velocity worm & worm wheel reduction in a restricted space using right angle (90°), nonintersecting shafts. When properly applied, worms and worm gears supply the smoothest, quietest type of gearing.
Because the effectiveness of a worm gear drive depends upon the business lead angle and amount of begins on the worm – and because increased efficiency is always a goal, the ratio should be kept as low as possible. To run correctly, worms and worm gears utilized together must have the same diametral pitch and threads.
