worms and worm gears provide a highly effective answer for power transmission applications requiring high-ratio velocity reduction in a limited space using right position (90°), non-intersecting shafts. When properly applied, worms and worm gears provide the worm & worm wheel smoothest, quietest type of gearing.

Because the performance of a worm equipment drive depends on the lead angle and number of starts on the worm – and because increased effectiveness is always an objective, the ratio should be kept as low as possible. To run properly, worms and worm gears used together must have the same diametral pitch and threads.

Our complete line of worms and worm gears could be ordered through the Boston Equipment Guaranteed Same Day Shipment System for the quickest delivery possible.
