Our complete line of worms and worm gears can be ordered through the EP Gear Guaranteed Same Time Shipment System for the fastest delivery possible.
90°, nonintersecting shaft applications answer highly specialized power transmission needs.
Our worm gears provide smoothest, quietest type of gearing.
They provide high-ratio speed reduction in minimal spaces.
Their efficiency is easily increased by lowering ratios.
With some ratios, there is resistance to back driving.
Available from 48 DP to 3 DP
Stocked as single, double and quad start configurations
Because the efficiency of a worm equipment drive depends on the lead angle and quantity of starts on the worm – and because increased efficiency is always a goal, the ratio should be kept as low as possible. To run properly, worms and worm gears utilized together must have the same diametral pitch and threads.
Worms & Worm Gears
EP Gear’s worms and worm gears provide an effective answer for power transmission applications requiring high-ratio speed reduction in a limited space using correct angle (90°), nonintersecting shafts. When properly used, 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 employed as velocity reducers in low- to moderate-quickness applications. And, because their reduction ratio is based on the amount of gear teeth only, they are smaller sized than other styles of gears. Like fine-pitch business lead screws, worm gears are usually self-locking, making them perfect for hoisting and lifting applications.
Although the sliding contact reduces efficiency, it provides very quiet operation. (The usage of dissimilar metals for the worm and gear also plays a part in quiet procedure.) This causes worm gears ideal for use where noise should be minimized, such as in elevators. Furthermore, the use of a softer materials for the gear means that it can absorb shock loads, like those skilled in large equipment or crushing machines.
