EP worm gearboxes possess earned a popularity to be an industry benchmark worldwide. Our success came from our relentless drive for top quality with state-of-the-art technology, all and will be offering worm gearboxes will be affordable prices. High flexibility accorded through a wide choice of mounting choices, shaft configurations and motor interfaces, creates the EP worm gearbox the default decision for the sector. The helical-worm and the double-worm version, with or without the torque limiter, add up to the advantage, creating a highly versatile drive system.
EP Worm gearboxes provide huge torque with low rate gear ratio. Being basic and compact in style, these gears can achieve higher gear ratio than the helical gears. These worm reduction gears having screw type qualities are similar to helical gears, but its helix position is typically comparatively larger) and its body is normally quite lengthy in the axial path. The gears in these gearboxes could be correct or left-handed dependant on the purpose.
Mounting choice include universal housing, part flanges, foot (horizontal and vertical), shaft mounted with torque arm. Obtainable in Solid shafts (single or double), with torque arm or torque limiter.
Worm reduction gears features
A worm gear is a kind of interlocking gear made up of a good worm shaft and worm wheel. The worm is usually shaped like a screw and the worm wheel can be a kind of gear machined to have a tooth account with the same configuration.
The procedure of a worm gear is similar with that of a bolt and nut. The principle is equivalent to a nut that has been fixed to ensure that it cannot rotate and for that reason progresses in the axial path when the bolt can be turned.
The design of a worm gear is thought of through the relationship between the rack and spur gear on the middle plane of the worm wheel.
Large reduction ratio One rotation of the worm rotates the worm wheel by one tooth. Due to this, in a 1 speed decrease gears, the wheel could be manufactured thus that it will be rotated 1/60 (1/120 in special applications).
Orthogonal shaft The shafts are aligned orthogonally because of the structure. This feature can help you layout the turning tranny direction at the right angle.
The arbitrariness of the rotation direction The screw direction of the worm could be clockwise or counterclockwise (generally clockwise). You’ll be able to transformation the rotation path of the worm wheel by changing the screw direction.
A multitude of shaft layouts The wide variety of shaft layouts is one of the top features of interlocking gears.For example, right shaft output, left shaft output, dual shaft input and dual shaft output, etc., incorporate for a total of 14 types (Shape 2) and, if attachment orientations are included, it is possible to select from over 40 layouts.
Low noise, low vibration The interlocking of the worm and worm wheel is certainly characteristic because the contact can be linear and the relative slide is fantastic. In comparison to rolling power transmission, sound and vibration are extremely low. Because of this, this technology can be used to drive medical equipment, elevators and escalators, etc.

Key points when selecting a worm reduction gears
When choosing a worm reduction gears, the procedures for selecting the right gear are described in the maker catalogs and the series and models ought to be selected according to those procedures. Particular care should be taken in crucial areas such as for example selecting the load index, calculating the overhang load and examining the heat rated potential from the manufacturer.
Cautions during use
When utilizing a worm reduction gears, the heat produced during the initial amount of use is large and running-in procedure at 1/4, 1/2 and 3/4 of rated torque for eight hour periods is paramount to sufficiently attaining the performance of the worm decrease gears.
Maintenance and inspection
After completing running-in procedure (approximately 50 hours), it’s important to change the lubricating oil and also to change the lubricating oil from then on about 1 time each year according to the procedure manual given by the manufacturer.
The Worm Decrease Gear Box is provided by our company is of high-quality. Our products are made by using premium quality materials and enhance technology at our vendors end. These are widely used in a variety of sectors. Our items are often available at a very low market prices.

Wormgears of the VF series are actually milestones for the sector worldwide. They succeeded in merging uncompromising top quality with stateoftheart technology amd renown cost effectiveness.Absolute flexibility is given by the wide choice of several mounting options, shaft configurations and motor interface, all offered as regular. The helicalworm and the doubleworm edition, with or without the torque limiter, also accumulate, creating a highly versatile drive system.
20 degree C TO 80 degree C
The worm reduction gears can be found in two series: X and H.
The series X, having a worm and worm wheel set, is available in versions XA with shaft and XF-XC with mounting provisions for motor.
Version XF (bell housing + coupling) offers great versatility to suit a broad selection of applications and higher efficiency compared to the compact line XC, where the emphasis is on space efficiency.
Series H offers the same features as series X with an extra plus: a spur equipment pre-stage at the insight end provides higher overall performance and a good broader selection of ratios compared to the X series.
Frame sizes 110 and 90 feature a cast-iron casing cast enbloc, whereas smaller sizes use die-cast aluminium housings. The worm shaft is produced from casehardened and hardened alloy metal and ground-finished.
The worm wheel has a cast iron hub with cast bronze insert. Hollow output shaft comes as standard.
Broad range of options available:
second input, output flange, single or dual extension output shaft, torque limiter with through wire, torque arm.
