Worm Equipment Reducers generally known as worm gearbox or perhaps worm velocity reducers. Worm equipment reducers are used for speed lowering and increasing the torque for electrical motor drives. You can decide to install your NEMA motor to the reducer by using the NEMA C encounter flange or employ a coupling. If you desire a coupling for the result or input shaft discover our coupling section for selecting a coupling. We offer four assemblies left palm and right palm and double end result shaft and shaft input and shaft productivity. Interchangeable with many worm equipment manufactures. See data sheet in product review for diamensions. Unless you see your type, please Contact Us.

EP GEARS also markets gear tooth measuring devices called GEAR GAGES! Gear Gages lessen mistakes, save time and money when identifying and ordering gears. These pitch templates are available in nine sets to recognize all the regular pitch sizes: Diametral Pitch “DP”, Circular Pitch “CP”, External Involute Splines, Metric Module “MOD”, Stub Tooth, Fine Pitches, Coarse Pitches and Uncommon Pitches. Make reference to the section on Equipment GAGES for catalog figures when ordering.

MATERIAL recommended for worms is hardened steel and bronze for worm gears. On the other hand, depending on the application form unhardened steel worms operate adequately and more economically with cast iron worm gears at 50% horsepower ratings. In addition to steel and hardenedsteel, worms can be found in stainless, metal, bronze and nylon; worm gears are available in steel, hardened metal, stainless, aluminium, nylon and nonmetallic (phenolic).

Security PROVISION: Worm gearing shouldn’t be used because a locking mechanism to carry large weights where reversing action can cause harm or personal injury. In applications where potential damage is non-existent and self-locking is preferred against backward rotation in that case use of a single thread worm with a low helix angle automatically locks the worm equipment drive against backward rotation.
