Worm Equipment Reducers also known as worm gearbox or perhaps worm velocity reducers. Worm equipment reducers are used for speed decrease and raising the torque for electric power motor drives. You can want to mount your NEMA electric motor to the reducer by using the NEMA C encounter flange or use a coupling. In the event that you desire a coupling for the productivity or input shaft see our coupling section for selecting a coupling. We offer four assemblies left side and right palm and double result shaft and shaft insight and shaft productivity. Interchangeable with most worm gear manufactures. See info sheet in product overview for diamensions. Unless you see your type, you should E MAIL US.

EP GEARS also offers gear tooth measuring products called GEAR GAGES! Gear Gages lessen mistakes, save money and time when identifying and ordering gears. These pitch templates can be purchased in nine sets to recognize all the standard pitch sizes: Diametral Pitch “DP”, Circular Pitch “CP”, Exterior Involute Splines, Metric Module “MOD”, Stub Tooth, Fine Pitches, Coarse Pitches and Uncommon Pitches. Make reference to the section on GEAR GAGES for catalog numbers when ordering.

Materials recommended for worms can be hardened steel and bronze for worm gears. On the other hand, depending on the application unhardened metal worms operate adequately and even more economically with cast iron worm gears at 50% horsepower ratings. Furthermore to metal and hardenedsteel, worms can be found in stainless, metal, bronze and nylon; worm gears can be found in steel, hardened steel, stainless, metal, nylon and non-metallic (phenolic).

Basic safety PROVISION: Worm gearing should not be used seeing that a locking mechanism to hold heavy weights where reversing action can cause harm or personal injury. In applications where potential harm is nonexistent and self-locking is preferred against backward rotation then use of a single thread worm with a low helix angle instantly locks the worm gear drive against backward rotation.
