This worm wheel gearbox gearbox utilizes a 30:1 ratio worm-drive reduction for applications that want extremely slow and smooth rotational motion. The worm-drive design not only minimizes backlash but also eliminates back-generating the gearmotor so a posture can be held even when power is not applied. The precision floor 3/8” stainless steel result shaft is backed by dual 3/8” ABEC 5 ball bearings to aid lots from any orientation. The ¼” ABS plastic and light weight aluminum structure provides a rigid framework without adding unnecessary weight and can be 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 (motor offered separately). The Vertical Shaft Worm-Drive Gearbox is perfect 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 acceleration decrease ratios with only one equipment pairing in a more compact space in comparison to other types of gears. You can expect up to a maximum ratio of 100:1 with our products. Another advantage of the Worm and Wheel equipment pairings is the low level sound they produce. Some disadvantages will be the general low effectiveness and the actual fact that they generate high temperature.
Advantage of EP’s Worm Gears – “Chilly rolled Worm Gears”
1) The hardness of the helicoid surface area has been attained by function hardening when the cold rolling was performed, providing Worm gears with better mechanical properties than machined worms due to reality that the metallic fibrous framework has not been cut.
2) The surface hardness after frosty rolling is increased by 1.2 to at least one 1.3 times in comparison to the hardness of the original material, and the hardness of the helicoid surface increases to around HB240 to 260.
3) Chilly rolled worms are suitable for miniature gear applications since this can be rotated smoothly without damaging the worm wheels made out of POM or various other soft materials.
4) Due to the implementation of this cold rolling method, the helicoid surface of EP-Worm (M0.5 to 2.0) comes out with a mirror like finish. Thus, EP-Precision Cool Rolled Worms provide a smooth procedure and long-term durability.
Worm gears are constructed of a worm and a gear (sometimes known as a worm wheel), with non-parallel, non-intersecting shafts oriented 90 degrees to one another. The worm can be analogous to a screw with a V-type thread, and the gear is usually analogous to a spur gear. The worm is typically the traveling component, with the worm’s thread advancing one’s teeth of the gear.
Like a ball screw, the worm in a worm gear might have an individual start or multiple starts – and therefore there are multiple threads, or helicies, on the worm. For a single-start worm, each full change (360 degrees) of the worm increases the gear by one tooth. So a gear with 24 teeth will provide a gear reduced amount of 24:1. For a multi-begin worm, the apparatus reduction equals the amount of teeth on the apparatus, divided by the amount of begins on the worm. (This is different from most other types of gears, where the gear reduction is certainly a function of the diameters of both components.)
The meshing of the worm and the gear is an assortment of sliding and rolling actions, but sliding contact dominates at high reduction ratios. This sliding action causes friction and temperature, which limits the efficiency of worm gears to 30 to 50 percent. To be able to minimize friction (and for that reason, heat), the worm and gear are made of dissimilar metals – for instance, the worm could be made of hardened metal and the gear manufactured from bronze or aluminum.
Although the sliding contact decreases efficiency, it provides very quiet operation. (The use of dissimilar metals for the worm and gear also contributes to quiet procedure.) This makes worm gears suitable for use where sound should be minimized, such as for example in elevators. Furthermore, the utilization of a softer materials for the apparatus 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 may also be utilized as speed reducers in low- to medium-swiftness applications. And, because their decrease ratio is based on the number of gear teeth by itself, they are more compact than other types of gears. Like fine-pitch business lead screws, worm gears are typically self-locking, making them perfect for hoisting and lifting applications.
Worms & Worm Gears
EP Gear’s worms and worm gears provide an effective answer for power transmitting applications requiring high-ratio swiftness reduction in a restricted space using correct angle (90°), nonintersecting shafts. When properly used, worms and worm gears provide the smoothest, quietest kind of gearing.
Because the efficiency of a worm gear drive depends on the lead angle and quantity of begins on the worm – and because increased efficiency is always a goal, the ratio should be kept only possible. To run properly, worms and worm gears used together must have the same diametral pitch and threads.

How exactly to Select High Efficient Worm Gearbox?
The worm gear production process can be relatively simple. However, there exists a low transmission effectiveness problem in the event that you don’t understand the how to choose the worm gearbox. 3 basic point to choose high worm equipment efficiency that you ought to know:
1) Helix angle. The worm gear drive efficiency mostly rely on the helix angle of the worm. Generally, multiple thread worms and gears is definitely more efficient than single thread worms. Proper thread worms can increase effectiveness.
2) Lubrication. To choose a brand lubricating essential oil can be an essential factor to boost worm gearbox performance. As the correct lubrication can reduce worm equipment action friction and high temperature.
3) Materials selection and Gear Manufacturing Technology. For worm shaft, the material should be hardened metal. The worm gear material should be aluminium bronze. By reducing the worm gear 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 capacity to an even small worm gearbox load, you can choose one from a wide variety of worm reducer that precisely fits your application requirements.
Worm Gear Package Assembly：
1) You may complete the set up in six different ways.
2) The installation must be solid and reliable.
3) Make sure to check the connection between the engine and the worm equipment reducer.
4) You must make use of flexible cables and wiring for a manual installation.
By using the innovative science and drive technology, we’ve developed several unique “square box” designed from high-quality aluminium die casting with a beautiful 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 speed variation UDL series. Their framework 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 double shaft for double-sided output or a cover for the short shaft end are optionally available as accessories. EP gearboxes have a high-quality, long-term synthetic lubricant based on polyethylene glycol, and are as a result maintenancefree. They are seen as a high efficiency and self-locking.
Because of their relatively high backlash (~1-2°), worm gears are not ideal for positioning applications.
Worm Gear applications
Application of worm gears, which is comparable to a standard spur and the worm, which is a cylindrical gear that resembles a screw, permits smaller gearboxes or planetary drives, while retaining torque or power. It’s quite common for worm gears to have reductions of 20:1, and actually up to 300:1 or greater.
Normal gearing includes the initial capability which various other gearing components do not have – the “worm” can effortlessly spin the part, but the “gears” cannot maneuver and fully rotate the worm-zone.
What’s the real reason for this inability to rotate the gear-worm?
The angle isn’t deep enough on the worm, so when the gear attempts to rotate the worm, high frictional pressure between worm shaft and gear parts keep the zone stuck constantly in place.
