This gearbox utilizes a 30:1 ratio worm-drive reduction for applications that want extremely slow and smooth rotational motion. The worm-drive design not merely minimizes backlash but also eliminates back-driving the gearmotor so a posture can be kept even when power isn’t applied. The precision ground 3/8” stainless steel result shaft is backed by dual 3/8” ABEC 5 ball bearings to aid lots from any orientation. The ¼” ABS plastic and light weight aluminum structure offers a rigid framework without adding unnecessary weight and is usually easily installed to any flat surface by utilizing the base mounting tabs. Our Regular Spur Gear motors will continue to work with this gearbox (motor marketed separately). The Vertical Shaft Worm-Drive Gearbox is ideal for turn-tables, time-lapse systems and low-speed applications that require high precision and torque.

High reduction gear
Worm and wheel equipment pairings provide large speed decrease ratios with only 1 equipment pairing in a more compact space when compared with other types of gears. We offer up to maximum ratio of 100:1 with this products. Another benefit of the Worm and Wheel gear pairings is the low level noise they produce. Some drawbacks are the general low efficiency and the fact that they generate warmth.
Advantage of EP’s Worm Gears – “Chilly rolled Worm Gears”
1) The hardness of the helicoid surface area has been attained by work hardening when the chilly rolling was performed, providing Worm gears with better mechanical properties than machined worms because of fact that the metallic fibrous framework has not been cut.
2) The top hardness after cold rolling is increased by 1.2 to at least one 1.3 times when compared with the hardness of the original material, and the hardness of the helicoid surface area increases to around HB240 to 260.
3) Cold rolled worms are ideal for miniature gear applications since this is often rotated smoothly without damaging the worm wheels crafted from POM or additional soft materials.
4) Because of the implementation of this cold rolling method, the helicoid surface area of EP-Worm (M0.5 to 2.0) comes away with a mirror like complete. Thus, EP-Precision Cold Rolled Worms provide a smooth procedure and long-term durability.
Worm gears are constructed of a worm and a gear (sometimes known as a worm wheel), with nonparallel, worm wheel gearbox nonintersecting shafts oriented 90 degrees to each other. The worm is usually analogous to a screw with a V-type thread, and the gear is usually analogous to a spur gear. The worm is typically the driving component, with the worm’s thread advancing the teeth of the gear.
Such as a ball screw, the worm in a worm gear may have a single start or multiple starts – meaning that there are multiple threads, or helicies, on the worm. For a single-start worm, each full change (360 degrees) of the worm advances the equipment by one tooth. So a gear with 24 teeth provides a gear reduced amount of 24:1. For a multi-start worm, the gear reduction equals the amount of teeth on the gear, divided by the number of begins on the worm. (That is different from most other types of gears, where the gear reduction is a function of the diameters of the two components.)
The meshing of the worm and the apparatus is an assortment of sliding and rolling actions, but sliding contact dominates at high reduction ratios. This sliding action causes friction and temperature, which limits the performance of worm gears to 30 to 50 percent. To be able to minimize friction (and therefore, warmth), the worm and equipment are made from dissimilar metals – for example, the worm may be made of hardened metal and the gear manufactured from bronze or aluminum.
Although the sliding contact decreases efficiency, it provides extremely quiet operation. (The usage of dissimilar metals for the worm and equipment also plays a part in quiet operation.) This makes worm gears suitable for use where noise should be minimized, such as for example in elevators. Furthermore, the use of a softer materials for the gear means that it could absorb shock loads, like those experienced in weighty equipment or crushing devices.
The primary benefit of worm gears is their ability to provide high reduction ratios and correspondingly high torque multiplication. They can also be utilized as acceleration reducers in low- to medium-acceleration applications. And, because their decrease ratio is founded on the number of gear teeth alone, they are more compact than other styles of gears. Like fine-pitch business lead screws, worm gears are typically self-locking, making them perfect for hoisting and lifting applications.
Worms & Worm Gears
EP Gear’s worms and worm gears provide a highly effective answer for power tranny applications requiring high-ratio quickness reduction in a restricted space using right angle (90°), nonintersecting shafts. When properly used, worms and worm gears supply the smoothest, quietest kind of gearing.
Because the performance of a worm equipment drive depends upon the lead angle and amount of begins on the worm – and because increased effectiveness is always a goal, the ratio ought to be kept as low as possible. To run properly, worms and worm gears utilized together must have the same diametral pitch and threads.

How to Select High Efficient Worm Gearbox?
The worm gear manufacturing process is also relatively simple. Nevertheless, there is a low transmission efficiency problem if you don’t understand the how to select the worm gearbox. 3 basic point to choose high worm gear efficiency that you should know:
1) Helix position. The worm equipment drive efficiency mostly rely on the helix position of the worm. Usually, multiple thread worms and gears can be more efficient than solitary thread worms. Proper thread worms can increase performance.
2) Lubrication. To choose a brand lubricating essential oil can be an essential factor to boost worm gearbox performance. As the correct lubrication can decrease worm gear action friction and temperature.
3) Material selection and Gear Manufacturing Technology. For worm shaft, the material ought to be hardened metal. The worm gear material ought to be aluminium bronze. By reducing the worm equipment hardness, the friction on the worm teeth is reduced. In worm production, to use the specific machine for gear slicing and tooth grinding of worms also can increase worm gearbox efficiency.
From a big transmission gearbox power to a straight small worm gearbox load, you can choose one from an array of worm reducer that precisely matches your application requirements.
Worm Gear Package Assembly：
1) You may complete the installation in six various ways.
2) The installation should be solid and reliable.
3) Ensure that you check the connection between the engine and the worm equipment reducer.
4) You must use flexible cables and wiring for a manual installation.
With the help of the most advanced science and drive technology, we’ve developed several unique “square box” designed from high-quality aluminium die casting with a beautiful appearance. The modular worm gearbox design series: worm drive gearbox, parallel shaft gearbox, bevel helical gearbox, spiral bevel gearbox, coaxial gearbox, right angle gearbox. An NMRV series gearbox is certainly a typical worm gearbox with a bronze worm gear and a worm. Our Helical gearbox product line comprises of four universal series (R/S/K/F) and a step-less rate variation UDL series. Their framework and function act like an NMRV worm gearbox.
In the EP worm gears, the output shaft is offset by 90° from the drive shaft. A double shaft for double-sided output or a cover for the short shaft end are optionally available as accessories. EP gearboxes come with a high-quality, long-term synthetic lubricant based on polyethylene glycol, and so are therefore maintenancefree. They are seen as a high performance and self-locking.
Because of their relatively high backlash (~1-2°), worm gears are not suitable for positioning applications.
Worm Gear applications
Software of worm gears, which is similar to a typical spur and the worm, which really is a cylindrical equipment that resembles a screw, allows for smaller gearboxes or planetary drives, while retaining torque or power. It is common for worm gears to possess reductions of 20:1, and even up to 300:1 or greater.
Common gearing includes the unique capability which additional gearing components do not have – the “worm” can effortlessly spin the part, but the “gears” cannot maneuver and fully rotate the worm-zone.
What’s the real reason for this inability to rotate the gear-worm?
The angle is not deep enough on the worm, so when the gear attempts to rotate the worm, high frictional pressure between worm shaft and gear parts keep carefully the zone stuck in position.
