worm & worm wheel

worms and worm gears provide an effective answer for power transmission applications requiring high-ratio speed reduction in a restricted space using right angle (90°), nonintersecting shafts. When properly applied, worms and worm gears supply the smoothest, quietest form of gearing.

Because the efficiency of a worm gear drive worm & worm wheel depends on the business lead angle and number of begins on the worm – and because increased effectiveness is always a goal, the ratio should be kept only possible. To run properly, worms and worm gears used together must have the same diametral pitch and threads.

Our complete type of worms and worm gears can be ordered through the Boston Gear Guaranteed Same Day Shipment Plan for the fastest delivery possible.
