Worm and Worm Gears sets transfer motion between non-intersecting right angle shafts. They will be the most compact tiny precision gears system readily available, and also the quietest and smoothest running. A worm and worm gears collection can provide a higher reduction ratio in an exceedingly small space.
EP has been manufacturing worm and wheel gear systems for over 30 years. You can expect worms and worm gears pieces in a range of ” and metric sizes and with a number of pitch, tooth count, and hub alternatives. Our precision ground stainless steel worm and wheels and phosphor bronze worm gears provide the best accuracy, smoothest procedure, and longest working your life.

EP’ High Performance Worm Gear Systems
A worm is configured much like a equipment screw, but with tooth made to mesh with the teeth of a worm wheel. These small precision gears may have single or multiple threads (referred to as starts). With each revolution, a single-start worm will maneuver the linked worm wheel by one tooth; worms with multiple begins will approach the mating worm gear a corresponding number of tooth with each revolution. (e.g., a 2-commence worm will move its worm wheel two teeth per revolution.)
Standard worm equipment worm wheels feature direct, helical-cut teeth and offer only 1 point of connection with the worm. EP gives “throated” worm tires with curved, helical-cut the teeth whose curves match the radius of the worm itself. Throated worm wheels provide a much greater speak to area, which vastly increases load potential and longevity.
