Worm Gear Reducers also called worm gearbox or worm rate reducers. Worm gear reducers are used for speed reduction and increasing the torque for electric motor drives. You can tend to attach your NEMA motor to the reducer utilizing the NEMA C facial area flange or use a coupling. If you need a coupling for the productivity or input shaft check out our coupling section for selecting a coupling. We offer four assemblies left hand and right hand and double result shaft and shaft insight and shaft outcome. Interchangeable with most worm equipment manufactures. See info sheet in product review for diamensions. Unless you see your type, you should Contact Us.
EP GEARS also offers gear tooth measuring equipment called Equipment GAGES! Gear Gages lessen mistakes, save money and time when identifying and ordering gears. These pitch templates can be found in nine sets to identify all the typical pitch sizes: Diametral Pitch “DP”, Circular Pitch “CP”, Exterior Involute Splines, Metric Module “MOD”, Stub Tooth, Great Pitches, Coarse Pitches and Unusual Pitches. Make reference to the section on Equipment GAGES for catalog quantities when ordering.
MATERIAL recommended for worms is usually hardened steel and bronze for worm gears. Even so, depending on the application form unhardened metal worms operate adequately and more economically with cast iron worm gears at 50% horsepower ratings. Furthermore to metal and hardenedsteel, worms are available in stainless, aluminum, bronze and nylon; worm gears are available in steel, hardened metal, stainless, light weight aluminum, nylon and non-metallic (phenolic).
Safeness PROVISION: Worm gearing shouldn’t be used while a locking mechanism to carry heavy weights where reversing action can cause harm or personal injury. In applications where potential injury is nonexistent and self-locking is ideal against backward rotation in that case use of a single thread worm with a low helix angle immediately locks the worm gear drive against backward rotation.
