Worm Equipment Reducers generally known as worm gearbox or perhaps worm rate reducers. Worm gear reducers are being used for speed reduction and raising the torque for electrical engine drives. You can choose to mount your NEMA engine to the reducer utilizing the NEMA C confront flange or make use of a coupling. If you need a coupling for the output or input shaft observe our coupling section for choosing the coupling. You can expect four assemblies left side and right palm and double output shaft and shaft type and shaft output. Interchangeable with most worm gear manufactures. See data sheet in product summary for diamensions. If you don’t see your type, make sure you Contact Us.
EP GEARS also offers gear tooth measuring equipment called Equipment GAGES! Gear Gages reduce mistakes, save money and time when identifying and buying gears. These pitch templates can be purchased in nine sets to recognize all the typical pitch sizes: Diametral Pitch “DP”, Circular Pitch “CP”, External Involute Splines, Metric Module “MOD”, Stub Tooth, Great Pitches, Coarse Pitches and Unusual Pitches. Make reference to the section on Equipment GAGES for catalog figures when ordering.
MATERIAL recommended for worms is hardened steel and bronze for worm gears. On the other hand, depending on the application form unhardened steel worms operate adequately and even more economically with cast iron worm gears at 50% horsepower ratings. Furthermore to metal and hardenedsteel, worms are available in stainless, aluminum, bronze and nylon; worm gears can be found in steel, hardened steel, stainless, aluminium, nylon and non-metallic (phenolic).
Basic safety PROVISION: Worm gearing shouldn’t be used because a locking mechanism to carry weighty weights where reversing action could cause harm or harm. In applications where potential injury is non-existent and self-locking is desired against backward rotation after that use of a single thread worm with a low helix angle quickly locks the worm gear drive against backward rotation.
