Worm Gear Reducers also called worm gearbox or perhaps worm velocity reducers. Worm gear reducers are used for speed lowering and raising the torque for electric engine drives. You can tend to install your NEMA electric motor to the reducer utilizing the NEMA C encounter flange or employ a coupling. If you desire a coupling for the productivity or input shaft discover our coupling section for selecting a coupling. You can expect four assemblies left side and right palm and double productivity shaft and shaft input and shaft output. Interchangeable with many worm equipment manufactures. See info sheet in product review for diamensions. Unless you see your type, you should Contact Us.
EP GEARS also offers gear tooth measuring equipment called GEAR GAGES! Gear Gages reduce mistakes, save money and time when identifying and ordering gears. These pitch templates can be found in nine sets to identify all the common pitch sizes: Diametral Pitch “DP”, Circular Pitch “CP”, Exterior Involute Splines, Metric Module “MOD”, Stub Tooth, Fine Pitches, Coarse Pitches and Uncommon Pitches. Make reference to the section on Equipment GAGES for catalog numbers when ordering.
Materials recommended for worms is usually hardened steel and bronze for worm gears. Nevertheless, depending on the application form unhardened metal worms operate adequately and more economically with cast iron worm gears at 50% horsepower ratings. Furthermore to steel and hardenedsteel, worms are available in stainless, light weight aluminum, bronze and nylon; worm gears can be purchased in steel, hardened metal, stainless, light weight aluminum, nylon and non-metallic (phenolic).
Safeness PROVISION: Worm gearing shouldn’t be used when a locking mechanism to carry weighty weights where reversing actions can cause harm or damage. In applications where potential injury is nonexistent and self-locking is desired against backward rotation in that case use of an individual thread worm with a low helix angle automatically locks the worm equipment travel against backward rotation.
