EP worm gearboxes have earned a status to be a business benchmark worldwide. Our achievement came from our relentless drive for quality with state-of-the-art technology, all and will be offering worm gearboxes happen to be affordable prices. High versatility accorded through a wide choice of mounting options, shaft configurations and motor interfaces, will make the EP worm gearbox the default choice for the industry. The helical-worm and the double-worm version, with or without the torque limiter, soon add up to the advantage, creating a highly versatile drive system.
EP Worm gearboxes provide large torque with low speed gear ratio. Being basic and compact in design, these gears can perform higher gear ratio compared to the helical gears. These worm reduction gears having screw type characteristics are similar to helical gears, but its helix position is typically comparatively larger) and its own body is normally quite long in the axial direction. The gears in these gearboxes can be correct or left-handed dependant on the purpose.
Mounting option include universal housing, aspect flanges, foot (horizontal and vertical), shaft mounted with torque arm. Obtainable in Solid shafts (solitary or dual), with torque arm or torque limiter.
Worm reduction gears features
A worm gear is a type of interlocking gear composed of a good worm shaft and worm wheel. The worm is definitely shaped such as a screw and the worm wheel is a type of gear machined to have a tooth account with the same configuration.
The operation of a worm gear is comparable with that of a bolt and nut. The principle is equivalent to a nut that is fixed to ensure that it cannot rotate and therefore progresses in the axial path when the bolt is definitely turned.
The look of a worm gear is considered through the relationship between the rack and spur gear on the middle plane of the worm wheel.
Substantial reduction ratio One rotation of the worm rotates the worm wheel simply by one tooth. Because of this, in a 1 speed reduction gears, the wheel can be manufactured thus that it’ll be rotated 1/60 (1/120 in unique applications).
Orthogonal shaft The shafts are aligned orthogonally due to the structure. This characteristic makes it possible to layout the turning transmitting direction at a right angle.
The arbitrariness of the rotation direction The screw direction of the worm can be clockwise or counterclockwise (generally clockwise). You’ll be able to switch the rotation direction of the worm wheel by changing the screw path.
A multitude of shaft layouts The wide variety of shaft layouts is among the features of interlocking gears.For instance, right shaft output, remaining shaft output, dual shaft input and dual shaft output, etc., incorporate for a total of 14 types (Number 2) and, if attachment orientations are included, you’ll be able to pick from over 40 layouts.
Low noise, low vibration The interlocking of the worm and worm wheel is characteristic because the contact is certainly linear and the relative slide is fantastic. In comparison to rolling power transmission, noise and vibration are really low. For this reason, this technology can be used to drive medical tools, elevators and escalators, etc.

Key points when choosing a worm reduction gears
When choosing a worm reduction gears, the procedures for selecting the correct gear are described in the manufacturer catalogs and the series and models ought to be selected according to those procedures. Particular care ought to be taken in essential areas such as selecting the strain index, calculating the overhang load and examining the heat rated potential from the manufacturer.
Cautions during use
When using a worm decrease gears, heat produced during the initial period of use is high and running-in procedure at 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 of rated torque for eight hour periods is paramount to sufficiently attaining the performance of the worm decrease gears.
Maintenance and inspection
After completing running-in procedure (approximately 50 hours), it is necessary to improve the lubricating oil and also to change the lubricating oil from then on about 1 time per year according to the operation manual given by the manufacturer.
The Worm Decrease Gear Box is supplied by our company is of supreme quality. Our products are created through the use of premium quality material and advance technology at our vendors end. They are widely used in a variety of sectors. Our goods are often available at an extremely low market prices.

Wormgears of the VF series are actually milestones for the sector worldwide. They succeeded in merging uncompromising top quality with stateoftheart technology amd renown cost effectiveness.Absolute versatility is distributed by the wide choice of several installation options, shaft configurations and motor interface, all offered as standard. The helicalworm and the doubleworm version, with or without the torque limiter, also add up, creating an extremely versatile drive system.
20 level C TO 80 degree C
The worm reduction gears come in two series: X and H.
The series X, featuring a worm and worm wheel set, comes in versions XA with shaft and XF-XC with mounting provisions for motor.
Version XF (bell housing + coupling) offers great versatility to suit a broad selection of applications and provides higher efficiency than the compact series XC, where the emphasis is on space efficiency.
Series H supplies the same features since series X with an extra plus: a spur equipment pre-stage at the insight end provides higher efficiency and a good broader range of ratios compared to the X series.
Framework sizes 110 and 90 include a cast-iron casing cast enbloc, whereas smaller sizes make use of die-cast aluminium housings. The worm shaft is produced from casehardened and hardened alloy steel and ground-finished.
The worm wheel includes a cast iron hub with cast bronze insert. Hollow output shaft is supplied as standard.
Broad range of options available:
second input, result flange, single or double extension output shaft, torque limiter with through cable connection, torque arm.
