Our complete type of worms and worm gears could be ordered through the EP Equipment Guaranteed Same Day time Shipment System for the quickest delivery possible.
90°, non-intersecting shaft applications answer highly specialized power transmitting needs.
Our worm gears offer the smoothest, quietest form of gearing.
They offer high-ratio speed reduction in minimal spaces.
Their efficiency is easily increased by lowering ratios.
With some ratios, there is level of resistance to back driving.
Obtainable from 48 DP to 3 DP
Stocked as single, dual and quad start configurations
Because the effectiveness of a worm gear drive depends on the business lead angle and number of begins on the worm – and because increased effectiveness is always a goal, the ratio should be kept only possible. To run properly, 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 effective answer for power transmitting applications requiring high-ratio velocity reduction in a limited space using right angle (90°), nonintersecting shafts. When properly applied, worms and worm gears supply the smoothest, quietest type of gearing.
The primary benefit of worm gears is their ability to provide high reduction ratios and correspondingly high torque multiplication. They may also be employed as quickness reducers in low- to moderate-speed applications. And, because their decrease ratio is founded on the amount of gear teeth only, they are smaller sized than other styles of gears. Like fine-pitch business lead screws, worm gears are usually self-locking, which makes them well suited for hoisting and lifting applications.
