EP worm gearboxes have earned a reputation to be a business benchmark worldwide. Our success originated from our relentless travel for top quality with state-of-the-artwork technology, all while offering worm gearboxes are affordable prices. High flexibility accorded through a wide choice of mounting options, shaft configurations and motor interfaces, will make the EP worm gearbox the default decision for the sector. The helical-worm and the double-worm edition, with or without the torque limiter, add up to the advantage, creating a highly versatile drive system.
EP Worm gearboxes provide high torque with low quickness gear ratio. Being basic and compact in style, these gears can perform higher gear ratio than the helical gears. These worm decrease gears having screw type characteristics are similar to helical gears, but its helix angle is typically comparatively bigger) and its body is normally quite lengthy in the axial direction. The gears in these gearboxes can be proper or left-handed depending upon the purpose.
Mounting choice include universal housing, part flanges, foot (horizontal and vertical), shaft mounted with torque arm. Available in Solid shafts (one or double), with torque arm or torque limiter.
Worm reduction gears features
A worm gear is a kind of interlocking gear made up of a good worm shaft and worm wheel. The worm is certainly shaped like a screw and the worm wheel can be a type of gear machined to get a tooth account with the same configuration.
The operation of a worm gear is comparable with that of a bolt and nut. The principle is equivalent to a nut that has been fixed to ensure that it cannot rotate and therefore progresses in the axial path when the bolt is definitely turned.
The design of a worm gear is thought of through the relationship between your rack and spur gear on the middle plane of the worm wheel.
Large reduction ratio One rotation of the worm rotates the worm wheel by one tooth. Because of this, in a 1 speed decrease gears, the wheel could be manufactured hence that it’ll be rotated 1/60 (1/120 in special applications).
Orthogonal shaft The shafts are aligned orthogonally because of the structure. This feature can help you layout the turning transmission direction at the right angle.
The arbitrariness of the rotation direction The screw direction of the worm could be clockwise or counterclockwise (generally clockwise). You’ll be able to transformation the rotation direction of the worm wheel by changing the screw path.
A wide variety of shaft layouts The wide selection of shaft layouts is one of the features of interlocking gears.For example, right shaft output, still left shaft output, dual shaft input and dual shaft output, etc., combine for a complete of 14 types (Body 2) and, if attachment orientations are included, it is possible to select from over 40 layouts.
Low noise, low vibration The interlocking of the worm and worm wheel can be characteristic because the contact is definitely linear and the relative slide is fantastic. In comparison with rolling power transmission, noise and vibration are extremely low. Because of this, this technology is utilized to drive medical apparatus, elevators and escalators, etc.

Key points when choosing a worm reduction gears
When selecting a worm reduction gears, the procedures for selecting the right gear are described in the maker catalogs and the series and models ought to be selected according to those procedures. Particular care should be taken in essential areas such as selecting the load index, calculating the overhang load and examining the heat rated capability from the manufacturer.
Cautions during use
When using a worm decrease gears, heat produced during the initial period of use is high and running-in operation at 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 of rated torque for eight hour periods is paramount to sufficiently attaining the performance of the worm reduction gears.
Maintenance and inspection
After completing running-in operation (approximately 50 hours), it is necessary to change the lubricating oil and also to change the lubricating oil from then on about 1 time per year according to the operation manual provided by the manufacturer.

Wormgears of the VF series are milestones for the sector worldwide. They succeeded in merging uncompromising quality with stateoftheart technology amd renown cost effectiveness.Absolute versatility is given by the wide selection of several mounting options, shaft configurations and electric motor interface, all offered as standard. The helicalworm and the doubleworm version, with or without the torque limiter, also add up, creating a highly versatile drive system.
20 level C TO 80 degree C
The worm reduction gears come in two series: X and H.
The series X, having a worm and worm wheel set, is available in versions XA with shaft and XF-XC with mounting provisions for motor.
Version XF (bell casing + coupling) provides great versatility to match a broad selection of applications and provides higher efficiency than the compact range XC, where in fact the emphasis is on space performance.
Series H offers the same features since series X with an added plus: a spur equipment pre-stage at the input end provides higher overall performance and a good broader range of ratios compared to the X series.
Framework sizes 110 and 90 feature a cast-iron housing cast enbloc, whereas smaller sizes use die-cast aluminium housings. The worm shaft is manufactured from casehardened and hardened alloy steel and ground-finished.
The worm wheel includes a cast iron hub with cast bronze insert. Hollow output shaft comes as standard.
Broad range of options available:
second input, result flange, single or double extension output shaft, torque limiter with through wire, torque arm.
