Worm and Worm Gears pieces transfer motion between nonintersecting right angle shafts. They will be the most compact small precision gears system readily available, along with the quietest and smoothest working. A worm and worm gears placed can provide a higher reduction ratio in an exceedingly small space.
EP has been production worm and wheel equipment systems for over 30 years. You can expect worms and worm gears units in various in . and metric sizes and with quite a few pitch, tooth count, and hub options. Our precision surface stainless worm and tires and phosphor bronze worm gears provide the best accuracy, smoothest procedure, and longest working lifestyle.

EP’ High Performance Worm Gear Systems
A worm is configured much like a equipment screw, but with tooth designed to mesh with one’s teeth of a worm wheel. These small precision gears may have sole or multiple threads (referred to as starts). With each revolution, a single-start worm will maneuver the affiliated worm wheel by one tooth; worms with multiple starts off will maneuver the mating worm equipment a corresponding amount of tooth with each revolution. (electronic.g., a 2-begin worm will move it is worm wheel two teeth per revolution.)
Standard worm equipment worm wheels feature directly, helical-cut teeth and provide only one point of connection with the worm. EP gives “throated” worm tires with curved, helical-cut tooth whose curves match the radius of the worm itself. Throated worm tires give a much greater get in touch with area, which vastly improves load ability and longevity.
