Normal Bronze Worm Gear Applications
The high torque output of worm gears makes them suitable for heavily loaded machinery. Some of the most common applications for worm gears include:
Movable bridge components
The controlled and powerful movement of worm gears are ideal for inducing movements in huge and heavy bridge structures.
Elevators, lifts, packaging gear, and conveyors
Worm gears are used to provide the torque had a need to transport large loads from one point to another. The non-reversible properties of this gear also act as a second safety braking system.
Heavy-duty construction devices and trucks
Heavy vehicles often use a worm gear differential for additional power. Based on the action of the vehicle, different amounts of torque might need to be sent to each wheel. Worm gears are used to provide the required torque that governs each wheel’s performance.
