worms and worm gears provide an effective answer for power transmission applications requiring high-ratio rate reduction in a limited space using right position (90°), nonintersecting shafts. When properly applied, worms and worm gears provide the smoothest, quietest type of gearing.
Because the efficiency of a worm gear drive depends on the business lead angle and number of starts on the worm – and because increased performance is always an objective, the ratio should be kept only possible. To run correctly, worms and worm gears used together will need to have the same diametral pitch and threads.
