Our complete line of worms and worm gears can be ordered through the EP Equipment Guaranteed Same Day Shipment System for the fastest delivery possible.
90°, non-intersecting shaft applications solution highly specialized power transmitting needs.
Our worm gears offer the smoothest, quietest type of gearing.
They offer 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 performance of a worm gear drive depends upon the business lead angle and number of begins on the worm – and because increased performance is always a goal, the ratio ought to be kept only 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 transmitting applications requiring high-ratio swiftness reduction in a restricted space using right angle (90°), non-intersecting shafts. When properly applied, worms and worm gears supply the smoothest, quietest type 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 utilized as rate reducers in low- to medium-speed applications. And, because their reduction ratio is founded on the number of gear teeth by itself, they are more compact than other types of gears. Like fine-pitch lead screws, worm gears are typically self-locking, making them ideal for hoisting and lifting applications.
Although the sliding contact decreases efficiency, it provides extremely quiet operation. (The usage of dissimilar metals for the worm and gear also contributes to quiet procedure.) This produces worm gears suitable for use where sound should be minimized, such as for example in elevators. In addition, the use of a softer materials for the gear means that it can absorb shock loads, like those experienced in weighty equipment or crushing machines.
Our worm gear box assembly is the freshest as well as most cutting-edge out there.
