Worm and Worm Gears units transfer motion between non-intersecting right angle shafts. They are the most compact small precision gears system available, along with the quietest and smoothest operating. A worm and worm gears establish can provide a high reduction ratio in an exceedingly small space.
EP has been developing worm and wheel equipment systems for over 30 years. We offer worms and worm gears sets in a range of inches and metric sizes and with several pitch, tooth count, and hub options. Our precision floor stainless worm and wheels and phosphor bronze worm gears supply the best accuracy, smoothest procedure, and longest working lifestyle.

EP’ High Performance Worm Gear Systems
A worm is configured similarly to a equipment screw, but with teeth made to mesh with one’s teeth of a worm wheel. These tiny precision gears may have solitary or multiple threads (known as starts). With each revolution, a single-start worm will maneuver the affiliated worm wheel by one tooth; worms with multiple starts off will maneuver the mating worm gear a corresponding number of the teeth with each revolution. (e.g., a 2-start worm will move the worm wheel two the teeth per revolution.)
Standard worm equipment worm wheels feature directly, helical-cut teeth and offer only one point of connection with the worm. EP presents “throated” worm tires with curved, helical-cut the teeth whose curves meet the radius of the worm itself. Throated worm tires give a much greater contact area, which vastly increases load capacity and longevity.
Our company is aiming to get to new kinds of metric worm gears, find out more at our site.
