Worm and Worm Gears models transfer motion between non-intersecting right position shafts. They will be the most compact small precision gears system readily available, plus the quietest and smoothest operating. A worm and worm gears establish can provide a higher reduction ratio in an exceedingly small space.
EP has been production worm and wheel equipment systems for over 30 years. We offer worms and worm gears models in a number of ” and metric sizes and with numerous pitch, tooth count, and hub choices. Our precision ground stainless steel worm and wheels and phosphor bronze worm gears provide the best accuracy, smoothest operation, and longest working lifestyle.

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 have solitary or multiple threads (referred to as starts). With each revolution, a single-start worm will move the connected worm wheel by one tooth; worms with multiple starts will move the mating worm gear a corresponding quantity of teeth with each revolution. (electronic.g., a 2-commence worm will move the worm wheel two teeth per revolution.)
Standard worm equipment worm wheels feature directly, helical-cut teeth and offer only one point of contact with the worm. EP presents “throated” worm tires with curved, helical-cut pearly whites whose curves meet the radius of the worm itself. Throated worm tires provide a much greater speak to area, which vastly increases load potential and longevity.
