Our complete type of worms and worm gears can be ordered through the EP Gear Guaranteed Same Time worm gear box assembly Shipment System for the quickest delivery possible.
90°, non-intersecting shaft applications solution highly specialized power tranny needs.
Our worm gears offer the smoothest, quietest kind of gearing.
They offer high-ratio speed reduction in minimal spaces.
Their efficiency is easily increased by reducing 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 equipment drive depends upon the lead angle and amount of starts on the worm – and because increased effectiveness is always a goal, the ratio ought to be kept only possible. To run correctly, 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 tranny applications requiring high-ratio quickness reduction in a limited space using correct angle (90°), nonintersecting shafts. When properly applied, worms and worm gears supply the smoothest, quietest type 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 acceleration reducers in low- to medium-rate applications. And, because their decrease ratio is founded on the number 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, making them perfect for hoisting and lifting applications.
