Small Precison Worm Reduction Gearboxes
There are a variety of specifications you will need to consider when coming up with a worm gearbox selection.
First, what is the insight and output torque requirements? Next, check vendor horsepower/torque charts and pick the correct worm equipment reducer.
If the size of the gearbox is going to be an important consideration then check the reducer dimension specs, not all manufacturers make compact units. In fact, working with the right supplier will help you not only find the right equipment reducer but also avoid some of the most typical errors in reducer selection. We provide a free guide to help you find the right supplier to work with.
For low and fractional horsepower app you can expect two sizes of worm gear reducer, the SW-1 and the SW-5. Size and torque output are the major differences between both of these models. Both feature either a hollow or solid output shaft. Both versions are compact and offer users a wide range of ratios, including:
SW-1, 3.5:1 to 60:1
SW-5, 5:1 to 100:1
Understanding the specs of your particular application or task is vital to selecting the right worm gearbox.

Micro Gearbox Options
Gearboxes are also known as reducers, gear reducers, quickness reducers, gear drives, and gearmotors. All conditions can be used pretty much interchangeably. Please be aware that the links for our little gear drives include information on the full selection of frame sizes for that series or design.
Bevel Box Micro Equipment Drive
Our bevel box miniature gear drives are program rated for the optimum balance of functionality and cost. Torque can be balanced to meet up your RPM and operating life requirements. Lightweight with low backlash performance (less than 1°, with option of 1/2”).
Output torque: up to 7 oz.-inches
Low backlash: ≈1°, option of 1/2”
Rated for input speeds up to 2,000 RPM
Temperature range: -5° to 175°F (-20° to 79°C); optional to -40°F (-40°C)
Cross Axis Helical Miniature Gearbox
Ever-Power miniature cross axis helical gearboxes provide relatively high amounts of thrust in a concise package. They offer an result shaft at 90° from the input, and so are obtainable in gear ratios from 1:1 to 40:1. Lightweight but durable, with machined aluminium housings and hardened alloy metal gears.
High efficiency: up to 88% at 1,000 RPM
Low backlash: as low as ≤30 arc minutes
Rated for input boosts to 4,000 RPM
“Left hand” models available
Miniature 2 Shaft Worm Gearbox
Our miniature 2 shaft worm gearmotors are engineered for ≤30 arc mins of backlash or better. Also known as “shaft to bore gearboxes,” the unit provide a single insight shaft that protrudes from opposing sides of the housing; output is definitely a keyed bore. Standard solitary- and double-end shafts are available and given keys and retainer bands. An array of gear ratios and insight sizes can be found to meet your needs.
High efficiency: up to 86% at 1,000 RPM
Low backlash: ≤30 arc minutes or better
Available in ratios from 5:1 to 120:1
Rated for input boosts to 3,000 RPM
Miniature 4 Shaft Worm Gearbox
Every miniature 4-shaft worm gearbox from Ever-Power features precision-machined hardened metal gears, solid aluminium housings, and long term lubrication.
