Our complete line of worms and worm gears can be ordered through the EP Equipment Guaranteed Same Day time Shipment Program for the quickest delivery possible.
90°, nonintersecting shaft applications solution highly specialized power transmitting needs.
Our worm gears provide smoothest, quietest kind of gearing.
They offer 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 performance of a worm gear drive depends upon the lead angle and amount of starts on the worm – and because increased effectiveness is always a goal, the ratio should be kept as low as possible. To run properly, worms and worm gears utilized together will need to have the same diametral pitch and threads.
Worms & Worm Gears
EP Gear’s worms and worm gears provide an effective answer for power tranny 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 kind 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 acceleration reducers in low- to moderate-acceleration applications. And, because their decrease ratio is founded on the amount of gear teeth alone, they are more compact than other types of gears. Like fine-pitch business lead screws, worm gears are usually self-locking, which makes them perfect for hoisting and lifting applications.
