plastic worm gear

Gears are the most commonly found transmission pieces. In a typical gear assembly, one toothed steering wheel interlocks with another. Gearboxes are often used to deliver power or transform direction.

Plastic-type material gears, as the brand suggests are constructed of plastic rather than metal. Included in these are worm gears, spur gears, helical gears, pinion gears, tooth gears, bevel gears, and planetary gears. The material can be a combo of Nylon (Nylon PA6 or Nylon PA66) and POM (Polyoxymethylene).

Advantages of Plastic Gear:

They can easily come in various shapes.
Plastic-type gears are relatively inexpensive.
They produce lower noise in comparison to metal gears.
They are resistant to deterioration because they have low friction coefficient.
Lightweight
Resistant to corrosion
Self-lubricated

These gears are being used extensively in various power transmission and motion control systems. Though we’ve listed merely five types of plastic-type gears, we also offer customized gears according to client’s specifications.
