Worm and Worm Gears pieces transfer motion between non-intersecting right position shafts. They will be the most compact small precision gears system offered, and also the quietest and smoothest running. A worm and worm gears placed can provide a high reduction ratio in an exceedingly small space.
EP has been manufacturing worm and wheel equipment systems for over 30 years. You can expect worms and worm gears sets in a range of inch and metric sizes and with quite a few pitch, tooth count, and hub choices. Our precision surface stainless worm and wheels and phosphor bronze worm gears supply the best accuracy, smoothest operation, and longest working your life.

EP’ POWERFUL Worm Gear Systems
A worm is configured much like a equipment screw, but with teeth made to mesh with the teeth of a worm wheel. These tiny precision gears may possess one or multiple threads (named starts off). With each revolution, a single-start worm will maneuver the affiliated worm wheel by one tooth; worms with multiple starts will approach the mating worm equipment a corresponding quantity of teeth with each revolution. (electronic.g., a 2-start worm will move the worm wheel two the teeth per revolution.)
Standard worm gear worm wheels feature right, helical-cut teeth and provide only 1 point of contact with the worm. EP gives “throated” worm tires with curved, helical-cut the teeth whose curves meet the radius of the worm itself. Throated worm wheels provide a much greater get in touch with area, which vastly boosts load potential and longevity.
