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-driving the gearmotor so a position can be kept even when power is not applied. The precision floor 3/8” stainless steel output shaft is backed by dual 3/8” ABEC 5 ball bearings to aid 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 surface by utilizing the bottom mounting tabs. Our Regular Spur Gear motors will continue to work with this gearbox (electric motor sold separately). The Vertical Shaft Worm-Drive Gearbox is ideal for turn-tables, time-lapse systems and low-velocity applications that want high precision and torque.

We offer up to a maximum ratio of 100:1 with our products. Another benefit of the Worm and Wheel equipment pairings may be the low level noise they produce. Some disadvantages are the general low performance and the actual fact that they generate heat.

Advantage of EP’s Worm Gears – “Frosty rolled Worm Gears”
1) The hardness of the helicoid surface has been attained by work hardening when the chilly rolling was performed, providing Worm gears with better mechanical properties than machined worms because of fact that the metallic fibrous structure 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 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 made out of POM or various other soft materials.

4) Because of 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 Frosty Rolled Worms provide a smooth operation and long-term durability.

Worm gears are constructed of a worm and a equipment (sometimes known as a worm wheel), with non-parallel, nonintersecting shafts oriented 90 degrees to one another. The worm is analogous to a screw with a V-type thread, and the worm wheel gearbox apparatus is analogous to a spur equipment. The worm is normally 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 a single start or multiple starts – meaning that there are multiple threads, or helicies, on the worm. For a single-start worm, each complete turn (360 degrees) of the worm increases the gear by one tooth. So a gear with 24 teeth provides a gear reduced amount of 24:1. For a multi-start worm, the apparatus reduction equals the number of teeth on the apparatus, divided by the number of begins on the worm. (This is different from almost every other types of gears, where the gear reduction is definitely a function of the diameters of both components.)
The meshing of the worm and the apparatus is an assortment of sliding and rolling actions, but sliding contact dominates at high reduction ratios. This sliding action causes friction and warmth, which limits the effectiveness of worm gears to 30 to 50 percent. In order to minimize friction (and therefore, high temperature), the worm and gear are made of dissimilar metals – for instance, the worm could be made of hardened metal and the gear made of bronze or aluminum.

Although the sliding contact reduces efficiency, it provides very quiet operation. (The use of dissimilar metals for the worm and equipment also contributes to quiet procedure.) This makes worm gears ideal for use where noise should be minimized, such as in elevators. Furthermore, the use of a softer material for the apparatus means that it can absorb shock loads, like those experienced in weighty equipment or crushing devices.

The primary advantage of worm gears is their ability to provide high reduction ratios and correspondingly high torque multiplication. They may also be utilized as rate reducers in low- to medium-swiftness applications. And, because their reduction ratio is founded on the number of gear teeth only, they are more compact than other types of gears. Like fine-pitch lead screws, worm gears are usually self-locking, which makes them well suited for hoisting and lifting applications.

Worms & Worm Gears
EP Gear’s worms and worm gears provide an effective answer for power tranny applications requiring high-ratio swiftness 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 performance of a worm gear drive depends on the business lead angle and amount of starts on the worm – and because increased effectiveness is always an objective, the ratio should be kept only possible. To run properly, worms and worm gears used together must have the same diametral pitch and threads.

Our complete line of worms and worm gears can be ordered through the EP Gear Guaranteed Same Day Shipment System for the quickest delivery possible.

How to Select High Efficient Worm Gearbox?
The worm gear production process can be relatively simple. However, there exists a low transmission performance problem in the event that you don’t know the how to select the worm gearbox. 3 basic point to choose high worm equipment efficiency that you ought to know:

1) Helix angle. The worm equipment drive efficiency mostly depend on the helix position of the worm. Usually, multiple thread worms and gears is definitely more efficient than one thread worms. Proper thread worms can increase effectiveness.

2) Lubrication. To choose a brand lubricating oil can be an essential factor to boost worm gearbox efficiency. As the correct lubrication can decrease worm gear action friction and high temperature.

3) Material selection and Gear Production Technology. For worm shaft, the material ought to be hardened metal. The worm gear materials should be aluminium bronze. By reducing the worm equipment hardness, the friction on the worm teeth is decreased. In worm manufacturing, to use the specific machine for gear reducing and tooth grinding of worms also can increase worm gearbox effectiveness.

From a large transmission gearbox capacity 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 Container Assembly:
1) You may complete the installation in six various ways.

2) The installation must be solid and reliable.

3) Be sure to check the connection between your electric motor and the worm equipment reducer.

4) You must make use of flexible cables and wiring for a manual installation.

By using the most advanced science and drive technology, we’ve developed several unique “square container” 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, correct angle gearbox. An NMRV series gearbox can be a typical worm gearbox with a bronze worm gear and a worm. Our Helical gearbox products consists of four universal series (R/S/K/F) and a step-less acceleration variation UDL series. Their structure and function act like 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 brief shaft end are optionally available as components. EP gearboxes come with a high-quality, long-term synthetic lubricant based on polyethylene glycol, and are for that reason maintenancefree. They are seen as a high effectiveness and self-locking.

Please note:
Because of their relatively high backlash (~1-2°), worm gears aren’t suitable for positioning applications.

Worm Gear applications
App of worm gears, which is similar to a standard spur and the worm, which is a cylindrical equipment that resembles a screw, permits smaller gearboxes or planetary drives, whilst retaining torque or power. It is common for worm gears to have reductions of 20:1, and actually up to 300:1 or greater.

Regular gearing includes the initial capability which other gearing components do not have – the “worm” can effortlessly spin the part, however the “gears” are not able to maneuver and fully rotate the worm-zone.

What’s the real reason for this inability to rotate the gear-worm?

The angle is not deep enough on the worm, so when the gear attempts to rotate the worm, high frictional pressure between worm shaft and gear parts keep carefully the zone stuck in position.
