Worm and Worm Gears pieces transfer motion between nonintersecting right angle shafts. They will be the most compact tiny precision gears system available, along with the quietest and smoothest jogging. A worm and worm gears establish can provide a higher reduction ratio in a very small space.
EP has been production worm and wheel equipment systems for over 30 years. We offer worms and worm gears models in many different inches and metric sizes and with many pitch, tooth count, and hub alternatives. Our precision floor stainless worm and tires and phosphor bronze worm gears supply the best accuracy, smoothest operation, and longest working existence.

EP’ High Performance Worm Gear Systems
A worm is configured similarly to a equipment screw, but with pearly whites designed to mesh with the teeth of a worm wheel. These tiny precision gears may possess one or multiple threads (known as starts off). With each revolution, a single-start worm will maneuver the associated worm wheel by one tooth; worms with multiple starts will approach the mating worm gear a corresponding amount of the teeth with each revolution. (e.g., a 2-commence worm will move it is worm wheel two the teeth per revolution.)
Standard worm equipment worm wheels feature straight, helical-cut teeth and offer only 1 point of contact with the worm. EP presents “throated” worm wheels with curved, helical-cut teeth whose curves match the radius of the worm itself. Throated worm wheels give a much greater contact area, which vastly boosts load ability and longevity.
