Worm and Worm Gears units transfer motion between non-intersecting right position shafts. They are the most compact small precision gears system readily available, as well as the quietest and smoothest jogging. A worm and worm gears collection can provide a higher reduction ratio in a very small space.
EP has been production worm and wheel equipment systems for over 30 years. You can expect worms and worm gears models in a number of ” and metric sizes and with many pitch, tooth count, and hub options. Our precision floor stainless worm and wheels and phosphor bronze worm gears provide the best accuracy, smoothest operation, and longest working life.

EP’ POWERFUL Worm Gear Systems
A worm is configured similarly to a equipment screw, but with the teeth made to mesh with one’s teeth of a worm wheel. These small precision gears may possess solitary or multiple threads (named starts). With each revolution, a single-start worm will approach the affiliated worm wheel by one tooth; worms with multiple starts will maneuver the mating worm gear a corresponding amount of the teeth with each revolution. (electronic.g., a 2-commence worm will move it is worm wheel two tooth per revolution.)
Standard worm gear worm wheels feature straight, helical-cut teeth and offer only 1 point of connection with the worm. EP gives “throated” worm wheels with curved, helical-cut teeth whose curves meet the radius of the worm itself. Throated worm wheels provide a much greater get in touch with area, which vastly enhances load capacity and longevity.
