Worm and Worm Gears models transfer motion between nonintersecting right position shafts. They are the most compact little precision gears system offered, plus the quietest and smoothest jogging. 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. You can expect worms and worm gears units in many different ” and metric sizes and with numerous pitch, tooth count, and hub choices. Our precision floor stainless worm and tires and phosphor bronze worm gears supply the best accuracy, smoothest procedure, and longest working life.

EP’ High Performance Worm Gear Systems
A worm is configured much like a machine screw, but with the teeth made to mesh with one’s teeth of a worm wheel. These tiny precision gears may possess solo or multiple threads (named starts). With each revolution, a single-start worm will approach the associated worm wheel by one tooth; worms with multiple starts will move the mating worm gear a corresponding amount of pearly whites with each revolution. (e.g., a 2-start worm will move the worm wheel two pearly whites per revolution.)

Standard worm equipment worm wheels feature directly, helical-cut teeth and offer only 1 point of connection with the worm. EP gives “throated” worm wheels with curved, helical-cut tooth whose curves match the radius of the worm itself. Throated worm tires provide a much greater contact area, which vastly boosts load ability and longevity.
