Worm and Worm Gears units transfer motion between nonintersecting right angle shafts. They are the most compact tiny precision gears system available, as well as the quietest and smoothest jogging. A worm and worm gears collection can provide a higher reduction ratio in an exceedingly small space.
EP has been making worm and wheel gear systems for over 30 years. We offer worms and worm gears sets in a range of in . and metric sizes and with various pitch, tooth count, and hub choices. Our precision floor stainless steel worm and tires and phosphor bronze worm gears provide the best accuracy, smoothest operation, and longest working life.

EP’ High Performance Worm Gear Systems
A worm is configured similarly to a equipment screw, but with tooth made to mesh with one’s teeth of a worm wheel. These little precision gears may possess solitary or multiple threads (called begins). With each revolution, a single-start worm will maneuver the affiliated worm wheel by one tooth; worms with multiple starts will approach the mating worm equipment a corresponding amount of tooth with each revolution. (electronic.g., a 2-commence worm will move its 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 offers “throated” worm wheels with curved, helical-cut pearly whites whose curves match the radius of the worm itself. Throated worm tires give a much greater contact area, which vastly increases load potential and longevity.
