Worm and Worm Gears pieces transfer motion between non-intersecting right position shafts. They are the most compact little precision gears system available, along with the quietest and smoothest operating. A worm and worm gears collection can provide a high reduction ratio in an exceedingly small space.
EP has been production worm and wheel gear systems for over 30 years. We offer worms and worm gears models in many different inch and metric sizes and with many pitch, tooth count, and hub alternatives. Our precision ground stainless worm and wheels and phosphor bronze worm gears provide the best accuracy, smoothest procedure, and longest working life.

EP’ POWERFUL 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 have solo or multiple threads (referred to as starts). With each revolution, a single-start worm will maneuver the linked worm wheel by one tooth; worms with multiple starts will approach the mating worm gear a corresponding amount of pearly whites with each revolution. (e.g., a 2-commence worm will move its worm wheel two pearly whites per revolution.)
Standard worm gear worm wheels feature right, helical-cut teeth and offer only 1 point of connection with the worm. EP offers “throated” worm tires with curved, helical-cut tooth whose curves meet the radius of the worm itself. Throated worm wheels give a much greater speak to area, which vastly enhances load capability and longevity.
