worm & worm wheel

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

Because the efficiency of a worm gear drive depends on the lead angle and number of begins on the worm – and because increased efficiency is always a goal, the ratio should be kept as low as possible. To run properly, worms and worm gears used together will need to have the same diametral pitch and threads.

Our complete line of worms and worm gears could be ordered through the Boston worm & worm wheel Equipment Guaranteed Same Day time Shipment Program for the quickest delivery possible.
