Worm Gear Reducers also called worm gearbox or worm swiftness reducers. Worm equipment reducers are being used for speed lowering and raising the torque for electric power engine drives. You can want to mount your NEMA engine to the reducer by using the NEMA C experience flange or apply a coupling. If you desire a coupling for the result or input shaft find our coupling section for selecting a coupling. We offer four assemblies left palm and right side and double output shaft and shaft type and shaft productivity. Interchangeable with most worm gear manufactures. See info sheet in product review for diamensions. Unless you see your type, make sure you E MAIL US.

EP GEARS also offers gear tooth measuring equipment called GEAR GAGES! Gear Gages reduce mistakes, save money and time when identifying and purchasing gears. These pitch templates are available in nine sets to identify all the normal pitch sizes: Diametral Pitch “DP”, Circular Pitch “CP”, Exterior Involute Splines, Metric Module “MOD”, Stub Tooth, Great Pitches, Coarse Pitches and Unusual Pitches. Refer to the section on GEAR GAGES for catalog numbers when ordering.

MATERIAL recommended for worms is usually hardened steel and bronze for worm gears. However, depending on the application unhardened steel worms operate adequately and even more economically with cast iron worm gears at 50% horsepower ratings. In addition to steel and hardenedsteel, worms are available in stainless, light weight aluminum, bronze and nylon; worm gears can be found in steel, hardened metal, stainless, aluminium, nylon and nonmetallic (phenolic).

Basic safety PROVISION: Worm gearing should not be used since a locking mechanism to hold weighty weights where reversing action can cause harm or injury. In applications where potential damage is non-existent and self-locking is preferred against backward rotation after that use of an individual thread worm with a minimal helix angle automatically locks the worm gear drive against backward rotation.
