This gearbox utilizes a 30:1 ratio worm-drive reduction for applications that require extremely slow and smooth rotational motion. The worm-drive design not merely minimizes backlash but also eliminates back-generating the gearmotor so a position can be kept even when power isn’t applied. The precision surface 3/8” stainless steel output shaft is backed by dual 3/8” ABEC 5 ball bearings to support a load from any orientation. The ¼” ABS plastic and light weight aluminum structure offers a rigid framework without adding unnecessary weight and is easily installed to any flat work surface by utilizing the base mounting tabs. Our Standard Spur Gear motors will continue to work with this gearbox (electric motor marketed separately). The Vertical Shaft Worm-Drive Gearbox is ideal for turn-tables, time-lapse systems and low-velocity applications that require high precision and torque.

High reduction gear
Worm and wheel gear pairings provide large velocity reduction ratios with only 1 gear pairing in a far more compact space when compared with other types of gears. We offer up to a maximum ratio of 100:1 with our products. Another advantage of the Worm and Wheel gear pairings may be the low level noise they produce. Some disadvantages will be the general low performance and the fact that they generate temperature.
Benefit of EP’s Worm Gears – “Cold rolled Worm Gears”
1) The hardness of the helicoid surface area has been achieved by function hardening when the frosty rolling was performed, providing Worm gears with better mechanical properties than machined worms due to fact that the metallic fibrous structure has not been cut.
2) The surface hardness after chilly rolling is increased by 1.2 to at least one 1.3 times when compared with the hardness of the initial materials, and the hardness of the helicoid surface area increases to around HB240 to 260.
3) Frosty rolled worms are suitable for miniature gear applications since this could be rotated smoothly without damaging the worm wheels crafted from POM or various other soft materials.
4) Due to the implementation of this cold rolling technique, the helicoid surface area of EP-Worm (M0.5 to 2.0) comes out with a mirror like complete. Thus, EP-Precision Cold Rolled Worms give a smooth procedure and long term durability.
Worm gears are constructed of a worm and a equipment (sometimes referred to as a worm wheel), with nonparallel, non-intersecting shafts oriented 90 degrees to each other. The worm is usually analogous to a screw with a V-type thread, and the apparatus is analogous to a spur gear. The worm is typically the traveling component, with the worm’s thread advancing one’s teeth of the gear.
Just like a ball screw, the worm in a worm gear might have a single start or multiple starts – meaning that there are multiple threads, or helicies, on the worm. For a single-start worm, each complete change (360 degrees) of the worm advances the equipment by one tooth. So a gear with 24 teeth will provide a gear reduced amount of 24:1. For a multi-begin worm, the gear reduction equals the amount of teeth on the gear, divided by the number of begins on the worm. (That is different from almost every other types of gears, where in fact the gear reduction is a function of the diameters of the two components.)
The meshing of the worm and the gear is a mixture of sliding and rolling actions, but sliding contact dominates at high reduction ratios. This sliding actions causes friction and warmth, which limits the effectiveness of worm gears to 30 to 50 percent. In order to minimize friction (and for that reason, temperature), the worm and gear are made from dissimilar metals – for example, the worm could be made of hardened metal and the gear made of bronze or aluminum.
Although the sliding contact reduces efficiency, it provides extremely quiet operation. (The use of dissimilar metals for the worm and equipment also plays a part in quiet operation.) This makes worm gears suitable for use where sound should be minimized, such as for example in elevators. Furthermore, the use of a softer material for the gear means that it can absorb shock loads, like those skilled in large equipment or crushing devices.
The primary advantage of worm gears is their capability to provide high reduction ratios and correspondingly high torque multiplication. They can also be used as acceleration reducers in low- to medium-velocity applications. And, because their reduction ratio is based on the amount of gear teeth by itself, they are smaller sized than other styles of gears. Like fine-pitch lead screws, worm gears are typically self-locking, which makes them ideal for hoisting and lifting applications.
Worms & Worm Gears
EP Gear’s worms and worm gears provide a highly effective answer for power transmitting applications requiring high-ratio speed reduction in a restricted space using correct angle (90°), non-intersecting shafts. When properly used, worms and worm gears supply the smoothest, quietest kind of gearing.
Because the effectiveness of a worm gear drive depends upon the lead angle and number of begins on the worm – and because increased efficiency is always an objective, the ratio should be kept only possible. To run properly, worms and worm gears utilized together will need to have the same diametral pitch and threads.
Our complete type of worms and worm gears can be ordered through the EP Equipment Guaranteed Same Day Shipment Plan for the fastest delivery possible.

How to Select High Efficient Worm Gearbox?
The worm gear production process is also relatively simple. However, there exists a low transmission effectiveness problem if you don’t understand the how to choose the worm gearbox. 3 basic indicate choose high worm equipment efficiency that you need to know:
1) Helix position. The worm equipment drive efficiency mostly depend on the helix position of the worm. Generally, multiple thread worms and gears is more efficient than one thread worms. Proper thread worms can increase performance.
2) Lubrication. To select a brand lubricating oil can be an essential factor to improve worm gearbox efficiency. As the correct lubrication can decrease worm gear action friction and high temperature.
3) Materials selection and Gear Manufacturing Technology. For worm shaft, the material should be hardened metal. The worm gear materials ought to be aluminium bronze. By reducing the worm equipment hardness, the friction on the worm teeth is reduced. In worm production, to use the specialized machine for gear slicing and tooth grinding of worms also can increase worm gearbox effectiveness.
From a sizable transmission gearbox power to a straight small worm gearbox load, you can choose one from a wide selection of worm reducer that precisely matches your application requirements.
Worm Gear Box Assembly：
1) You can complete the set up in six different ways.
2) The installation must be solid and reliable.
3) Be sure to examine the connection between your electric motor and the worm gear reducer.
4) You must use flexible cables and wiring for a manual installation.
By using the most advanced science and drive technology, we’ve developed several unique “square box” designed from high-quality aluminium die casting with a lovely appearance. The modular worm gearbox design series: worm drive gearbox, parallel shaft gearbox, bevel helical gearbox, spiral bevel gearbox, coaxial gearbox, right angle gearbox. An NMRV series gearbox can be a typical worm gearbox with a bronze worm equipment and a worm. Our Helical gearbox product line comprises of four universal series (R/S/K/F) and a step-less velocity variation UDL series. Their structure and function are similar to an NMRV worm gearbox.
In the EP worm gears, the output shaft is offset by 90° from the drive shaft. A dual shaft for double-sided result or a cover for the brief shaft end are elective as accessories. EP gearboxes have a high-quality, long-term synthetic lubricant on the basis of polyethylene glycol, and are therefore maintenancefree. They are characterized by high effectiveness and self-locking.
Due to their relatively high backlash (~1-2°), worm gears aren’t suitable for positioning applications.
Worm Gear applications
Software of worm gears, which is similar to a standard spur and the worm, which is a cylindrical gear that resembles a screw, allows for smaller gearboxes or planetary drives, whilst retaining torque or power. It is common for worm gears to have reductions of 20:1, and also up to 300:1 or greater.
Regular gearing includes the unique capability which various other gearing components don’t have – the “worm” can effortlessly spin the part, but the “gears” cannot maneuver and fully rotate the worm-zone.
What’s the reason behind this inability to rotate the gear-worm?
The angle isn’t deep enough on the worm, so when the apparatus attempts to rotate the worm, high frictional pressure between worm shaft and gear parts keep the zone stuck in position.
