Worm and Worm Gears models transfer motion between non-intersecting right angle shafts. They will be the most compact little precision gears system obtainable, along with the quietest and smoothest working. A worm and worm gears collection can provide a higher reduction ratio in an exceedingly small space.
EP has been production worm and wheel gear systems for over 30 years. You can expect worms and worm gears pieces in a number of in . and metric sizes and with numerous pitch, tooth count, and hub choices. Our precision floor stainless worm and wheels and phosphor bronze worm gears provide the best accuracy, smoothest operation, and longest working existence.

EP’ POWERFUL Worm Gear Systems
A worm is configured similarly to a machine screw, but with tooth designed to mesh with the teeth of a worm wheel. These small precision gears may possess solo or multiple threads (known as begins). With each revolution, a single-start worm will approach the connected worm wheel by one tooth; worms with multiple begins will move the mating worm equipment a corresponding number of the teeth with each revolution. (e.g., a 2-start worm will move its worm wheel two the teeth per revolution.)
Standard worm gear worm wheels feature direct, helical-cut teeth and provide only one point of contact with the worm. EP gives “throated” worm wheels with curved, helical-cut teeth whose curves match the radius of the worm itself. Throated worm tires provide a much greater get in touch with area, which vastly enhances load capacity and longevity.
