Worm Equipment Reducers often known as worm gearbox or worm acceleration reducers. Worm gear reducers are being used for speed lowering and increasing the torque for electrical engine drives. You can choose to install your NEMA electric motor to the reducer by using the NEMA C deal with flange or apply a coupling. If you desire a coupling for the productivity or input shaft see our coupling section for selecting a coupling. We offer four assemblies left palm and right side and double productivity shaft and shaft type and shaft productivity. Interchangeable with most worm gear manufactures. See info sheet in product overview for diamensions. If you don’t see your type, make sure you E MAIL US.

EP GEARS also offers gear tooth measuring devices called Equipment GAGES! Gear Gages lessen mistakes, save time and money when identifying and buying gears. These pitch templates can be purchased in nine sets to recognize all the standard pitch sizes: Diametral Pitch “DP”, Circular Pitch “CP”, External Involute Splines, Metric Module “MOD”, Stub Tooth, Great Pitches, Coarse Pitches and Unusual Pitches. Refer to the section on Equipment GAGES for catalog figures when ordering.

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

Protection PROVISION: Worm gearing should not be used when a locking mechanism to carry heavy weights where reversing actions could cause harm or injury. In applications where potential harm is nonexistent and self-locking is ideal against backward rotation in that case use of an individual thread worm with a low helix angle instantly locks the worm equipment drive against backward rotation.
