EP worm gearboxes have earned a reputation to be a business benchmark worldwide. Our achievement originated from our relentless travel for top quality with state-of-the-artwork technology, all while offering worm gearboxes are affordable prices. High flexibility accorded through a broad choice of mounting options, shaft configurations and electric motor interfaces, will make the EP worm gearbox the default choice for the sector. The helical-worm and the double-worm edition, with or without the torque limiter, add up to the advantage, creating an extremely versatile drive system.
EP Worm gearboxes provide high torque with low velocity gear ratio. Being simple and compact in style, these gears can achieve higher gear ratio compared to the helical gears. These worm decrease gears having screw type qualities act like helical gears, but its helix position is typically comparatively larger) and its own body is normally quite lengthy in the axial path. The gears in these gearboxes can be proper or left-handed depending upon the purpose.
Mounting choice include universal housing, part flanges, foot (horizontal and vertical), shaft mounted with torque arm. Available in Solid shafts (one or double), with torque arm or torque limiter.
Worm reduction gears features
A worm gear is a kind of interlocking gear composed of a worm shaft and worm wheel. The worm can be shaped such as a screw and the worm wheel is usually a kind of gear machined to have a tooth account with the same configuration.
The operation of a worm gear is comparable with that of a bolt and nut. The principle is equivalent to a nut that is fixed so that it cannot rotate and for that reason progresses in the axial path when the bolt is certainly turned.
The look of a worm gear is thought of through the relationship between the rack and spur gear on the middle plane of the worm wheel.
Substantial reduction ratio One rotation of the worm rotates the worm wheel by one tooth. For this reason, in a 1 speed reduction gears, the wheel can be manufactured consequently that it will be rotated 1/60 (1/120 in special applications).
Orthogonal shaft The shafts are aligned orthogonally because of the structure. This characteristic makes it possible to layout the turning transmission direction at the right angle.
The arbitrariness of the rotation direction The screw direction of the worm can be clockwise or counterclockwise (generally clockwise). You’ll be able to modification the rotation direction of the worm wheel by changing the screw direction.
A multitude of shaft layouts The wide variety of shaft layouts is one of the top features of interlocking gears.For example, right shaft output, left shaft output, dual shaft input and dual shaft output, etc., combine for a complete of 14 types (Body 2) and, if attachment orientations are included, it is possible to pick from over 40 layouts.
Low noise, low vibration The interlocking of the worm and worm wheel is certainly characteristic because the contact is certainly linear and the relative slide is fantastic. In comparison to rolling power transmission, noise and vibration are really low. For this reason, this technology is utilized to drive medical gear, elevators and escalators, etc.

Key points when selecting a worm reduction gears
When choosing a worm reduction gears, the procedures for selecting the correct gear are described in the maker catalogs and the series and models ought to be selected according to those procedures. Particular care ought to be taken in essential areas such as selecting the strain index, calculating the overhang load and examining heat rated ability from the manufacturer.
Cautions during use
When utilizing a worm decrease gears, the heat produced through the initial amount of use is high and running-in procedure at 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 of rated torque for eight hour periods is paramount to sufficiently achieving the performance of the worm decrease gears.
Maintenance and inspection
After completing running-in procedure (approximately 50 hours), it is necessary to change the lubricating oil and to change the lubricating oil from then on about 1 time per year according to the operation manual presented by the manufacturer.
The Worm Decrease Gear Box is provided by our company is of supreme quality. Our products are created by using premium quality material and enhance technology at our vendors end. They are widely used in various sectors. Our goods are often available at an extremely low market prices.

Wormgears of the VF series are actually milestones for the industry worldwide. They succeeded in merging uncompromising quality with stateoftheart technology amd renown cost effectiveness.Absolute versatility is distributed by the wide choice of several mounting options, shaft configurations and electric motor interface, all offered as regular. The helicalworm and the doubleworm version, with or without the torque limiter, also accumulate, creating an extremely versatile drive system.
20 degree C TO 80 degree C
The worm reduction gears come in two series: X and H.
The series X, having a worm and worm wheel set, comes in versions XA with shaft and XF-XC with mounting provisions for motor.
Version XF (bell housing + coupling) offers great versatility to suit a broad selection of applications and provides higher efficiency compared to the compact line XC, where in fact the emphasis is on space performance.
Series H offers the same features because series X with an added plus: a spur equipment pre-stage at the insight end provides higher functionality and a good broader selection of ratios compared to the X series.
Framework sizes 110 and 90 include a cast-iron housing cast enbloc, whereas smaller sizes make use of die-cast aluminium housings. The worm shaft is manufactured from casehardened and hardened alloy metal and ground-finished.
The worm wheel includes a cast iron hub with cast bronze insert. Hollow result shaft comes as standard.
Broad range of options available:
second input, result flange, single or double extension result shaft, torque limiter with through cable connection, torque arm.
