Worm and Worm Gears sets transfer motion between non-intersecting right position shafts. They are the most compact little precision gears system obtainable, and also the quietest and smoothest jogging. A worm and worm gears placed 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 models in various inches and metric sizes and with several pitch, tooth count, and hub options. Our precision surface stainless worm and wheels and phosphor bronze worm gears provide the best accuracy, smoothest procedure, and longest working life.

EP’ POWERFUL Worm Gear Systems
A worm is configured much like a machine screw, but with teeth made to mesh with the teeth of a worm wheel. These small precision gears may possess sole or multiple threads (known as begins). With each revolution, a single-start worm will move the associated worm wheel by one tooth; worms with multiple starts off will approach the mating worm gear a corresponding quantity of teeth with each revolution. (electronic.g., a 2-start worm will move the worm wheel two the teeth per revolution.)
Standard worm equipment worm wheels feature directly, helical-cut teeth and provide only 1 point of connection with the worm. EP offers “throated” worm tires with curved, helical-cut tooth whose curves match the radius of the worm itself. Throated worm tires give a much greater get in touch with area, which vastly enhances load capacity and longevity.
