Our complete type of worms and worm gears can be ordered through the EP Gear Guaranteed Same Time Shipment System for the quickest delivery possible.
90°, non-intersecting shaft applications answer highly specialized power tranny needs.
Our worm gears provide smoothest, quietest form of gearing.
They offer high-ratio speed decrease in minimal spaces.
Their efficiency is easily increased by reducing ratios.
With some ratios, there is level of 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 gear drive depends on the business lead angle and quantity of begins on the worm – and because increased effectiveness is always an objective, the ratio ought to be kept as low as possible. To run properly, worms and worm gears used 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 tranny applications requiring high-ratio rate reduction in a restricted 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 may also be applied as quickness reducers in low- to moderate-quickness applications. And, because their reduction ratio is founded on the number of gear teeth by itself, they are more compact than other styles of gears. Like fine-pitch lead screws, worm gears are usually self-locking, which makes them well suited for hoisting and lifting applications.
