Our complete line of worms and worm gears could be ordered through the EP Equipment Guaranteed Same Day Shipment System for the fastest delivery possible.
90°, non-intersecting 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 reducing ratios.
With some ratios, there is level of 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 on the business lead angle and number of starts on the worm – and because increased performance is always an objective, the ratio should be kept only possible. To run correctly, 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 transmitting applications requiring high-ratio rate reduction in a restricted space using right angle (90°), non-intersecting shafts. When properly applied, worms and worm gears supply 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 can also be applied as swiftness reducers in low- to moderate-acceleration applications. And, because their reduction ratio is based on the number of gear teeth by itself, they are smaller sized than other styles of gears. Like fine-pitch lead screws, worm gears are usually self-locking, making them well suited for hoisting and lifting applications.
