Our complete type of worms and worm gears could be ordered through the EP Equipment Guaranteed Same Time Shipment Plan for the quickest delivery possible.
90°, non-intersecting shaft applications solution highly specialized power transmission 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.
Offered from 48 DP to 3 DP
Stocked as worm gear box assembly single, double and quad start configurations
Because the performance of a worm gear drive depends upon the business lead angle and amount of begins on the worm – and because increased effectiveness is always a goal, the ratio ought to be kept only 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 transmission applications requiring high-ratio acceleration 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 utilized as acceleration reducers in low- to moderate-swiftness applications. And, because their reduction ratio is founded on the amount of gear teeth by itself, they are smaller sized than other styles of gears. Like fine-pitch business lead screws, worm gears are typically self-locking, making them ideal for hoisting and lifting applications.
