Worm Equipment Reducers generally known as worm gearbox or worm swiftness reducers. Worm gear reducers are being used for speed reduction and increasing the torque for electric power engine drives. You can decide to mount your NEMA electric motor to the reducer utilizing the NEMA C face flange or work with a coupling. If you need a coupling for the productivity or input shaft observe our coupling section for choosing the coupling. You can expect four assemblies left side and right hand and double output shaft and shaft type and shaft result. Interchangeable with many worm gear manufactures. See info sheet in product review for diamensions. If you don’t see your type, make sure you Contact Us.
EP GEARS also markets gear tooth measuring units called GEAR GAGES! Gear Gages decrease mistakes, save money and time when identifying and ordering gears. These pitch templates can be purchased in nine sets to recognize all the standard pitch sizes: Diametral Pitch “DP”, Circular Pitch “CP”, Exterior Involute Splines, Metric Module “MOD”, Stub Tooth, Great Pitches, Coarse Pitches and Unusual Pitches. Make reference to the section on GEAR GAGES for catalog quantities when ordering.
Materials recommended for worms is definitely hardened steel and bronze for worm gears. Even so, depending on the application form unhardened metal worms operate adequately and more economically with cast iron worm gears at 50% horsepower ratings. Furthermore to metal and hardenedsteel, worms can be found in stainless, lightweight aluminum, bronze and nylon; worm gears can be purchased in steel, hardened steel, stainless, light weight aluminum, nylon and non-metallic (phenolic).
Safeness PROVISION: Worm gearing shouldn’t be used when a locking mechanism to hold serious weights where reversing actions could cause harm or injury. In applications where potential harm is nonexistent and self-locking is preferred against backward rotation in that case use of an individual thread worm with a low helix angle quickly locks the worm equipment drive against backward rotation.
