worm gear box assembly

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

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

Worms & Worm Gears
EP Gear’s worms and worm gears provide a highly effective answer for power tranny applications requiring high-ratio velocity reduction in a restricted space using right angle (90°), non-intersecting shafts. When properly applied, worms and worm gears provide 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 used as acceleration reducers in low- to moderate-acceleration applications. And, because their reduction ratio is based on the amount of gear teeth only, they are more compact than other styles of gears. Like fine-pitch business lead worm gear box assembly screws, worm gears are typically self-locking, which makes them ideal for hoisting and lifting applications.
