Worm and Worm Gears pieces transfer motion between nonintersecting right position shafts. They are the most compact little precision gears system readily available, plus the quietest and smoothest jogging. A worm and worm gears established can provide a high reduction ratio in an exceedingly small space.
EP has been manufacturing worm and wheel gear systems for over 30 years. We offer worms and worm gears sets in various inches and metric sizes and with various pitch, tooth count, and hub choices. Our precision surface stainless worm and wheels and phosphor bronze worm gears provide the best accuracy, smoothest operation, and longest working life.

EP’ High Performance Worm Gear Systems
A worm is configured much like a machine screw, but with the teeth made to mesh with the teeth of a worm wheel. These tiny precision gears may have single or multiple threads (known as starts). With each revolution, a single-start worm will maneuver the associated worm wheel by one tooth; worms with multiple begins will maneuver the mating worm gear a corresponding amount of teeth with each revolution. (e.g., a 2-begin worm will move the worm wheel two the teeth per revolution.)
Standard worm gear worm wheels feature straight, helical-cut teeth and offer only 1 point of connection with the worm. EP presents “throated” worm tires with curved, helical-cut the teeth whose curves match the radius of the worm itself. Throated worm tires provide a much greater get in touch with area, which vastly enhances load ability and longevity.
