Worm and Worm Gears units transfer motion between non-intersecting right angle shafts. They will be the most compact tiny precision gears system available, along with the quietest and smoothest operating. A worm and worm gears collection can provide a higher reduction ratio in a very small space.
EP has been production worm and wheel gear systems for over 30 years. We offer worms and worm gears units in a variety of in . and metric sizes and with many pitch, tooth count, and hub alternatives. Our precision ground stainless steel worm and tires 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 teeth designed to mesh with one’s teeth of a worm wheel. These little precision gears may have solitary or multiple threads (referred to as begins). With each revolution, a single-start worm will approach the linked worm wheel by one tooth; worms with multiple starts off will approach the mating worm equipment a corresponding number of tooth with each revolution. (e.g., a 2-commence worm will move it is worm wheel two teeth per revolution.)
Standard worm equipment worm wheels feature right, helical-cut teeth and provide only one point of contact with the worm. EP provides “throated” worm wheels with curved, helical-cut pearly whites whose curves meet the radius of the worm itself. Throated worm wheels give a much greater speak to area, which vastly increases load capacity and longevity.
If recently you, among your friends or relative had any type of experience with metric worm gears, don’t think twice to discuss your point of view in remarks.
