Worm and Worm Gears units transfer motion between nonintersecting right angle shafts. They are the most compact little precision gears system offered, along with the quietest and smoothest working. A worm and worm gears placed can provide a higher reduction ratio in an exceedingly small space.

EP has been developing worm and wheel gear systems for over 30 years. You can expect worms and worm gears units in various inches and metric sizes and with various pitch, tooth count, and hub alternatives. Our precision ground stainless worm and wheels and phosphor bronze worm gears provide the best accuracy, smoothest procedure, and longest working lifestyle.

EP’ POWERFUL Worm Gear Systems
A worm is configured much like a equipment screw, but with teeth designed to mesh with the teeth of a worm wheel. These tiny precision gears may have one or multiple threads (known as begins). With each revolution, a single-start worm will approach the affiliated worm wheel by one tooth; worms with multiple begins will maneuver the mating worm equipment a corresponding amount of the teeth with each revolution. (e.g., a 2-begin worm will move it is worm wheel two tooth per revolution.)

Standard worm equipment worm wheels feature directly, helical-cut teeth and provide only 1 point of connection with the worm. EP provides “throated” worm wheels with curved, helical-cut the teeth whose curves meet the radius of the worm itself. Throated worm tires provide a much greater speak to area, which vastly enhances load capacity and longevity.
