worm gear box assembly

Our complete line of worms and worm gears can be ordered through the EP Equipment Guaranteed Same Day Shipment Program for the fastest delivery possible.
Product Features
90°, non-intersecting shaft applications answer highly specialized power transmission needs.
Our worm gears provide smoothest, quietest form of gearing.
They offer high-ratio speed decrease in minimal spaces.
Their efficiency is easily increased by lowering ratios.
With some ratios, there is resistance to back driving.
Offered from 48 DP to 3 DP
Stocked as single, double and quad start configurations

Because the efficiency of a worm equipment drive depends on the lead angle and number of starts on the worm – and because increased performance is always an objective, the ratio ought to be kept as low as possible. To run correctly, worms and worm gears utilized together must have the same diametral pitch and threads.

Worms & Worm Gears
EP Gear’s worms and worm gears provide a highly effective answer for power transmission applications requiring high-ratio rate reduction in a limited space using correct angle (90°), nonintersecting shafts. When properly used, worms and worm gears supply the smoothest, quietest kind of gearing.

The primary advantage of worm gears is their ability to provide high reduction ratios and correspondingly high torque multiplication. They may also be applied as swiftness reducers in low- to moderate-rate applications. And, because their reduction ratio is founded on the amount of gear teeth only, they are smaller sized than other types of gears. Like fine-pitch lead screws, worm gears are usually self-locking, making them perfect for hoisting and lifting applications.

Although the sliding contact decreases efficiency, it provides very quiet operation. (The usage of dissimilar metals for the worm and equipment also plays a part in quiet operation.) This makes worm gears ideal for use where noise should be minimized, such as in elevators. In addition, the usage of a softer material for the gear implies that it can absorb shock loads, like those experienced in heavy equipment or crushing machines.
