Worm and Worm Gears models transfer motion between nonintersecting right position shafts. They are the most compact little precision gears system readily available, along with the quietest and smoothest working. A worm and worm gears collection can provide a high reduction ratio in a very small space.

EP has been making worm and wheel gear systems for over 30 years. We offer worms and worm gears models in many different ” and metric sizes and with many pitch, tooth count, and hub alternatives. Our precision floor stainless steel 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 similarly to a equipment screw, but with pearly whites designed to mesh with one’s teeth of a worm wheel. These small precision gears may have single or multiple threads (known as starts off). With each revolution, a single-start worm will approach the associated worm wheel by one tooth; worms with multiple starts will maneuver the mating worm equipment a corresponding quantity of pearly whites with each revolution. (e.g., a 2-commence worm will move its worm wheel two tooth per revolution.)

Standard worm gear worm wheels feature straight, helical-cut teeth and provide only 1 point of contact with the worm. EP offers “throated” worm wheels with curved, helical-cut the teeth whose curves meet the radius of the worm itself. Throated worm wheels give a much greater contact area, which vastly improves load ability and longevity.
