Our complete type of worms and worm gears could be ordered through the EP Equipment Guaranteed Same Day time Shipment Plan for the fastest delivery possible.
90°, nonintersecting shaft applications solution highly specialized power tranny needs.
Our worm gears offer the smoothest, quietest form of gearing.
They provide high-ratio speed reduction in minimal spaces.
Their efficiency is easily increased by reducing ratios.
With some ratios, there is resistance to back driving.
Offered from 48 DP to 3 DP
Stocked as single, double and quad start configurations
Because the effectiveness of a worm gear drive depends upon the lead angle and number 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 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 transmission applications requiring high-ratio velocity reduction in a limited space using right angle (90°), nonintersecting shafts. When properly used, worms and worm gears supply the smoothest, quietest type of gearing.
The primary advantage of worm gears is their ability to provide high reduction ratios and correspondingly high torque multiplication. They can also be utilized as velocity reducers in low- to medium-speed applications. And, because their reduction ratio is based on the amount of gear teeth alone, they are smaller sized than other types of gears. Like fine-pitch lead screws, worm gears are typically self-locking, which makes them well suited for hoisting and lifting applications.
