Our complete type of worms and worm gears can be ordered through the EP Equipment Guaranteed Same Day time Shipment Program for the quickest delivery possible.
90°, nonintersecting shaft applications answer highly specialized power transmitting needs.
Our worm gears offer the smoothest, quietest form of gearing.
They provide 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.
Obtainable from 48 DP to 3 DP
Stocked as single, double and quad start configurations
Because the effectiveness of a worm gear drive depends on the lead angle and amount of begins on the worm – and because increased performance is always an objective, the ratio should be kept as low as possible. To run properly, 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 a highly effective answer for power tranny applications requiring high-ratio rate reduction in a restricted space using right angle (90°), nonintersecting shafts. When properly applied, worms and worm gears supply the smoothest, quietest kind of gearing.
The primary advantage of worm gears is their capability to provide high reduction ratios and correspondingly high torque multiplication. They may also be applied as speed reducers in low- to medium-speed applications. And, because their decrease ratio is founded on the amount of gear teeth only, they are smaller sized than other types of gears. Like fine-pitch lead screws, worm gears are usually self-locking, making them perfect for hoisting and lifting applications.
This is how worm gear box assembly could be utilised for your advantage.
