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°, nonintersecting shaft applications solution highly specialized power tranny needs.
Our worm gears offer the smoothest, quietest kind of gearing.
They offer worm gear box assembly high-ratio speed decrease in minimal spaces.
Their efficiency is easily increased by decreasing 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 equipment drive depends upon the lead angle and amount of starts on the worm – and because increased performance is always an objective, the ratio should be kept as low as 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 velocity reduction in a limited space using correct angle (90°), non-intersecting shafts. When properly applied, worms and worm gears provide the smoothest, quietest kind of gearing.
The primary benefit of worm gears is their ability to provide high reduction ratios and correspondingly high torque multiplication. They can also be used as rate reducers in low- to moderate-rate applications. And, because their reduction ratio is founded on the amount of gear teeth by itself, they are more compact than other styles of gears. Like fine-pitch business lead screws, worm gears are typically self-locking, which makes them well suited for hoisting and lifting applications.
