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

High reduction gear
Worm and wheel gear pairings provide large velocity decrease ratios with only one gear pairing in a more compact space in comparison to other styles of gears. We offer up to maximum ratio of 100:1 with this products. Another advantage of the Worm and Wheel equipment pairings is the low level sound they produce. Some disadvantages will be the general low efficiency and the fact that they generate warmth.
Benefit of EP’s Worm Gears – “Chilly rolled Worm Gears”
1) The hardness of the helicoid surface area has been achieved by function hardening when the cool rolling was performed, providing Worm gears with better mechanical properties than machined worms because of reality that the metallic fibrous structure is not cut.
2) The top hardness after cool rolling is increased by 1.2 to at least one 1.3 times when compared with the hardness of the original materials, and the hardness of the helicoid surface area increases to around HB240 to 260.
3) Chilly rolled worms are ideal for miniature equipment applications since this can be rotated smoothly without damaging the worm wheels crafted from POM or additional soft materials.
4) Due to the implementation of this cold rolling method, the helicoid surface of EP-Worm (M0.5 to 2.0) comes out with a mirror like finish. Thus, EP-Precision Chilly Rolled Worms give a smooth operation and long term durability.
Worm gears are made of a worm and a gear (sometimes referred to as a worm wheel), with non-parallel, nonintersecting shafts oriented 90 degrees to each other. The worm is certainly analogous to a screw with a V-type thread, and the apparatus is definitely analogous to a spur gear. The worm is normally the traveling component, with the worm’s thread advancing the teeth of the gear.
Just like a ball screw, the worm in a worm gear might 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 turn (360 degrees) of the worm increases the equipment by one tooth. So a gear with 24 teeth provides a gear reduction of 24:1. For a multi-begin worm, the gear reduction equals the number of teeth on the apparatus, divided by the number of starts on the worm. (This is different from almost every other types of gears, where in fact the gear reduction is a function of the diameters of both components.)
The meshing of the worm and the apparatus is a mixture of sliding and rolling actions, but sliding contact dominates at high reduction ratios. This sliding actions causes friction and heat, which limits the effectiveness of worm gears to 30 to 50 percent. To be able to minimize friction (and for that reason, heat), the worm and gear are made from dissimilar metals – for example, the worm could be made of hardened steel and the gear manufactured from bronze or aluminum.
Although the sliding contact decreases efficiency, it provides very quiet operation. (The utilization of dissimilar metals for the worm and gear also plays a part in quiet procedure.) This makes worm gears ideal for use where sound should be minimized, such as for example in elevators. Furthermore, the utilization 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 advantage of worm gears is their capability to provide high reduction ratios and correspondingly high torque multiplication. They can also be utilized as velocity reducers in low- to medium-quickness applications. And, because their decrease ratio is founded on the number of gear teeth by itself, they are smaller sized than other styles of gears. Like fine-pitch lead screws, worm gears are usually self-locking, making them perfect for hoisting and lifting applications.
Worms & Worm Gears
EP Gear’s worms and worm gears provide an effective answer for power transmitting applications requiring high-ratio velocity reduction in a limited space using correct angle (90°), non-intersecting shafts. When properly used, worms and worm gears provide the smoothest, quietest type of gearing.
Because the efficiency of a worm equipment drive depends upon the business lead angle and amount of begins on the worm – and because increased effectiveness is always an objective, the ratio should be kept as low as possible. To run properly, worms and worm gears utilized together will need to have the same diametral pitch and threads.

How to Select High Efficient Worm Gearbox?
The worm gear production process can be relatively simple. Nevertheless, there is a low transmission performance problem if you don’t understand the how to select the worm gearbox. 3 basic point to choose high worm equipment efficiency that you need to know:
1) Helix position. The worm equipment drive efficiency mostly depend on the helix position of the worm. Generally, multiple thread worms and gears is usually more efficient than one thread worms. Proper thread worms can increase performance.
2) Lubrication. To choose a brand lubricating oil can be an essential factor to improve worm gearbox performance. As the correct lubrication can reduce worm equipment action friction and temperature.
3) Material selection and Gear Production Technology. For worm shaft, the material should be hardened metal. The worm gear materials should be aluminium bronze. By reducing the worm equipment hardness, the friction on the worm teeth is decreased. In worm manufacturing, to use the specialized machine for gear slicing and tooth grinding of worms also can increase worm gearbox effectiveness.
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 fits your application requirements.
Worm Gear Package Assembly：
1) You can complete the set up in six different ways.
2) The installation should be solid and reliable.
3) Be sure to examine the connection between the engine and the worm equipment reducer.
4) You must make use of flexible cables and wiring for a manual set up.
With the help of the most advanced science and drive technology, we have developed several unique “square package” designed from high-quality aluminium die casting with a beautiful appearance. The modular worm gearbox style series: worm drive gearbox, parallel shaft gearbox, bevel helical gearbox, spiral bevel gearbox, coaxial gearbox, right angle gearbox. An NMRV series gearbox is a typical worm gearbox with a bronze worm equipment and a worm. Our Helical gearbox products comprises of four universal series (R/S/K/F) and a step-less rate variation UDL series. Their structure and function are similar to an NMRV worm gearbox.
In the EP worm gears, the output shaft is offset by 90° from the drive shaft. A dual shaft for double-sided output or a cover for the brief shaft end are elective as accessories. EP gearboxes come with a high-quality, long-term synthetic lubricant based on polyethylene glycol, and are consequently maintenancefree. They are seen as a high effectiveness and self-locking.
Due to their relatively high backlash (~1-2°), worm gears are not ideal for positioning applications.
Worm Gear applications
App of worm gears, which is similar to a typical spur and the worm, which really is a cylindrical gear that resembles a screw, permits smaller gearboxes or planetary drives, while retaining torque or power. It’s quite common for worm gears to have reductions of 20:1, and also up to 300:1 or greater.
Common gearing includes the unique capability which other gearing components don’t have – the “worm” can effortlessly spin the part, but the “gears” cannot maneuver and fully rotate the worm-zone.
What’s the reason behind this inability to rotate the gear-worm?
The angle isn’t deep enough on the worm, so when the apparatus attempts to rotate the worm, high frictional pressure between worm shaft and gear parts keep carefully the zone stuck constantly in place.
