Worm and Worm Gears sets transfer motion between non-intersecting right angle shafts. They are the most compact little precision gears system readily available, and also the quietest and smoothest jogging. A worm and worm gears set can provide a higher reduction ratio in an exceedingly small space.
EP has been developing worm and wheel equipment systems for over 30 years. We offer worms and worm gears units in a range of ” and metric sizes and with various pitch, tooth count, and hub options. Our precision ground stainless worm and tires and phosphor bronze worm gears provide the best accuracy, smoothest procedure, and longest working your life.

EP’ High Performance Worm Gear Systems
A worm is configured similarly to a equipment screw, but with the teeth made to mesh with one’s teeth of a worm wheel. These little precision gears may possess solo or multiple threads (named begins). With each revolution, a single-start worm will approach the associated worm wheel by one tooth; worms with multiple starts will approach the mating worm equipment a corresponding number of the teeth with each revolution. (e.g., a 2-begin worm will move its worm wheel two tooth per revolution.)
Standard worm gear worm wheels feature right, helical-cut teeth and offer only 1 point of connection with the worm. EP presents “throated” worm wheels with curved, helical-cut the teeth whose curves meet the radius of the worm itself. Throated worm tires give a much greater speak to area, which vastly enhances load potential and longevity.
