Worm and Worm Gears models transfer motion between non-intersecting right position shafts. They are the most compact small precision gears system obtainable, and also the quietest and smoothest working. A worm and worm gears set can provide a higher reduction ratio in a very small space.
EP has been making worm and wheel equipment systems for over 30 years. You can expect worms and worm gears pieces in a number of in . and metric sizes and with quite a few pitch, tooth count, and hub options. Our precision floor stainless steel worm and tires and phosphor bronze worm gears supply the best accuracy, smoothest procedure, and longest working lifestyle.

EP’ POWERFUL Worm Gear Systems
A worm is configured similarly to a equipment screw, but with tooth made to mesh with the teeth of a worm wheel. These little precision gears may possess sole or multiple threads (called starts off). With each revolution, a single-start worm will move the affiliated worm wheel by one tooth; worms with multiple starts will move the mating worm gear a corresponding quantity of the teeth with each revolution. (electronic.g., a 2-start worm will move its worm wheel two tooth per revolution.)
Standard worm equipment worm wheels feature right, helical-cut teeth and provide only 1 point of connection with the worm. EP provides “throated” worm tires with curved, helical-cut tooth whose curves match the radius of the worm itself. Throated worm wheels give a much greater contact area, which vastly improves load capability and longevity.
Just what could metric worm gears do for you? You ask We tell.
