Our complete type of worms and worm gears can be ordered through the EP Gear Guaranteed Same Day time 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 business lead angle and quantity of starts on the worm – and because increased effectiveness is always an objective, the ratio should be kept as low as possible. To run correctly, 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 transmitting applications requiring high-ratio velocity reduction in a limited space using correct angle (90°), non-intersecting shafts. When properly used, worms and worm gears provide the smoothest, quietest form 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 applied as swiftness reducers in low- to moderate-velocity applications. And, because their decrease ratio is founded on the number of gear teeth by itself, they are smaller sized than other types of gears. Like fine-pitch lead screws, worm gears are typically self-locking, which makes them ideal for hoisting and lifting applications.
