worm & worm wheel

worms and worm gears provide an effective answer for power tranny applications requiring high-ratio speed worm & worm wheel reduction in a limited space using right angle (90°), non-intersecting shafts. When properly applied, worms and worm gears provide the smoothest, quietest type of gearing.

Because the efficiency of a worm equipment drive depends upon the lead angle and number of starts 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.

Our complete line of worms and worm gears could be ordered through the Boston Equipment Guaranteed Same Time Shipment System for the quickest delivery possible.
