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

EP has been developing worm and wheel gear systems for over 30 years. We offer worms and worm gears sets in many different in . and metric sizes and with a number of pitch, tooth count, and hub options. Our precision ground stainless steel worm and tires and phosphor bronze worm gears provide the best accuracy, smoothest operation, and longest working existence.

EP’ POWERFUL Worm Gear Systems
A worm is configured much like a machine screw, but with the teeth designed to mesh with the teeth of a worm wheel. These tiny precision gears may possess solitary or multiple threads (named starts off). With each revolution, a single-start worm will move the connected worm wheel by one tooth; worms with multiple starts off will approach the mating worm equipment a corresponding quantity of pearly whites with each revolution. (e.g., a 2-begin worm will move it is worm wheel two the teeth per revolution.)

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