worms and worm gears provide an effective solution for power transmission applications requiring high-ratio velocity reduction in a restricted space using right position (90°), non-intersecting shafts. When properly used, worms and worm gears supply the worm & worm wheel smoothest, quietest type of gearing.
Because the performance of a worm gear drive depends upon the lead angle and quantity of starts on the worm – and because increased efficiency is always a goal, the ratio should be kept as low as possible. To run correctly, worms and worm gears used together will need to have the same diametral pitch and threads.
Our complete type of worms and worm gears could be ordered through the Boston Equipment Guaranteed Same Day Shipment Program for the quickest delivery possible.
