worm wheel gearbox
This gearbox utilizes a 30:1 ratio worm-drive reduction for applications that require extremely slow and smooth rotational motion. The worm-drive design not only minimizes backlash but also eliminates back again-driving the gearmotor therefore a position can be kept even when power is not applied. The precision ground 3/8” stainless steel output shaft is supported by dual 3/8” ABEC 5 ball bearings to aid a load from any orientation. The ¼” ABS plastic and light weight aluminum structure offers a rigid framework without adding unnecessary excess weight and is easily mounted to any flat work surface by utilizing the base mounting tabs. Our Standard Spur Gear motors will continue to work with this gearbox (electric motor offered separately). The Vertical Shaft Worm-Drive Gearbox is perfect for turn-tables, time-lapse systems and low-velocity applications that require high precision and torque.
Motor RPM required = 1 / (moments per rotation desired / 30)
Example: 1 / (ten minutes per rotation / 30) = 3 RPM motor needed to achieve 10 minutes per rotation (at max speed)
