Our complete type of worms and worm gears could be ordered through the EP Equipment Guaranteed Same Day 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 high-ratio speed decrease in minimal spaces.
Their efficiency is easily increased by decreasing ratios.
With some ratios, there is resistance to back driving.
Available from 48 DP to 3 DP
Stocked as single, dual and quad start configurations
Because the efficiency of a worm gear drive depends upon the business lead angle and number of begins on the worm – and because increased vè k'ap manje kadav reyinyon bwat bwat performance is always a goal, the ratio ought to be kept only 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 a highly effective answer for power transmitting applications requiring high-ratio acceleration reduction in a limited space using correct angle (90°), non-intersecting 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 utilized as rate reducers in low- to moderate-acceleration applications. And, because their decrease 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 usually self-locking, making them perfect for hoisting and lifting applications.
Although the sliding contact reduces efficiency, it provides very quiet operation. (The use of dissimilar metals for the worm and gear also contributes to quiet procedure.) This makes worm gears ideal for use where noise should be minimized, such as for example in elevators. In addition, 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.
