Worm and Worm Gears units transfer motion between nonintersecting right position shafts. They will be the most compact little precision gears system readily available, plus the quietest and smoothest running. A worm and worm gears collection can provide a high reduction ratio in a very small space.
EP has been manufacturing worm and wheel gear systems for over 30 years. You can expect worms and worm gears models in a number of in . and metric sizes and with a number of pitch, tooth count, and hub alternatives. Our precision surface stainless steel worm and wheels and phosphor bronze worm gears provide the best accuracy, smoothest operation, and longest working existence.

EP’ High Performance Worm Gear Systems
A worm is configured similarly to a equipment screw, but with tooth designed to mesh with the teeth of a worm wheel. These small precision gears may possess sole or multiple threads (named begins). With each revolution, a single-start worm will approach the connected worm wheel by one tooth; worms with multiple starts off will move the mating worm equipment a corresponding number of tooth with each revolution. (e.g., a 2-begin worm will move the worm wheel two pearly whites per revolution.)
Standard worm gear worm wheels feature straight, helical-cut teeth and provide only 1 point of connection with the worm. EP provides “throated” worm wheels with curved, helical-cut pearly whites whose curves match the radius of the worm itself. Throated worm wheels give a much greater get in touch with area, which vastly improves load capacity and longevity.
