Small Precison Worm Reduction Gearboxes
There are a number of specifications you will have to consider when coming up with a worm gearbox selection.
First, what is the input and output torque requirements? Next, verify vendor horsepower/torque charts and pick the correct worm equipment reducer.
If the size of the gearbox will probably be an important consideration then check the reducer dimension specifications, not all manufacturers make compact units. In fact, working with the proper supplier can help you not only find the right equipment reducer but also avoid some of the most typical errors in reducer selection. We provide a free guide to assist you find the right supplier to work with.
For low and fractional horsepower program you can expect two sizes of worm equipment reducer, the SW-1 and the SW-5. Size and torque output are the major distinctions between these two models. Both feature the hollow or solid output shaft. Both models are compact and provide users a wide selection of ratios, including:
SW-1, 3.5:1 to 60:1
SW-5, 5:1 to 100:1
Understanding the specs of your particular application or project is essential to selecting the correct worm gearbox.

Micro Gearbox Options
Gearboxes are also known as reducers, gear reducers, acceleration reducers, gear drives, and gearmotors. All terms can be used more or less interchangeably. Please be aware that the links for our little gear drives include details on the full range of body sizes for that series or design.
Bevel Box Micro Equipment Drive
Our bevel box miniature gear drives are software rated for the maximum balance of functionality and cost. Torque can be balanced to meet your RPM and operating life requirements. Light-weight with low backlash performance (as little as 1°, with choice of 1/2”).
Output torque: up to 7 oz.-inches
Low backlash: ≈1°, option of 1/2”
Rated for input speeds up to 2,000 RPM
Temperature range: -5° to 175°F (-20° to 79°C); optional to -40°F (-40°C)
Cross Axis Helical Miniature Gearbox
Ever-Power miniature cross axis helical gearboxes provide relatively high levels of thrust in a compact package. They offer an result shaft at 90° from the input, and so are obtainable in gear ratios from 1:1 to 40:1. Lightweight but durable, with machined aluminum housings and hardened alloy steel gears.
High efficiency: up to 88% at 1,000 RPM
Low backlash: only ≤30 arc minutes
Rated for input speeds up to 4,000 RPM
“Left hand” models available
Miniature 2 Shaft Worm Gearbox
Our miniature 2 shaft worm gearmotors are engineered for ≤30 arc minutes of backlash or better. Also known as “shaft to bore gearboxes,” the unit provide a single insight shaft that protrudes from reverse sides of the casing; output is usually a keyed bore. Standard single- and double-end shafts can be found and supplied with keys and retainer bands. An array of equipment ratios and input sizes can be found to meet your preferences.
High efficiency: up to 86% at 1,000 RPM
Low backlash: ≤30 arc minutes or better
Available in ratios from 5:1 to 120:1
