Stocked as single, double and quad start configurations

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

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

The primary benefit of worm gears is their capability to provide high reduction ratios and correspondingly high torque multiplication. They can also be used as swiftness reducers in low- to medium-rate applications. And, because their decrease ratio is based on the amount of gear teeth by itself, they are smaller sized than other types of gears. Like fine-pitch business lead screws, worm gears are typically self-locking, which makes them well suited for hoisting and lifting applications.
