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

High reduction gear
Worm and wheel gear pairings provide large quickness reduction ratios with only 1 equipment pairing in a far more compact space in comparison to other types of gears. We offer up to a maximum ratio of 100:1 with our products. Another advantage of the Worm and Wheel gear pairings may be the low level sound they produce. Some drawbacks will be the general low efficiency and the fact that they generate heat.
Benefit of EP’s Worm Gears – “Cool rolled Worm Gears”
1) The hardness of the helicoid surface area has been attained 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 surface hardness after cold rolling is increased by 1.2 to at least one 1.3 times in comparison to the hardness of the original materials, and the hardness of the helicoid surface increases to around HB240 to 260.
3) Cool rolled worms are suitable for miniature gear applications since this could be rotated smoothly without damaging the worm wheels made out of POM or various other soft materials.
4) Because of the implementation of the cold rolling technique, the helicoid surface of EP-Worm (M0.5 to 2.0) comes away with a mirror like complete. Thus, EP-Precision Cold Rolled Worms give a smooth operation and long-term durability.
Worm gears are made of a worm and a equipment (sometimes known as a worm wheel), with non-parallel, nonintersecting shafts oriented 90 degrees to one another. The worm is analogous to a screw with a V-type thread, and the gear can be analogous to a spur equipment. The worm is typically the traveling component, with the worm’s thread advancing the teeth of the gear.
Such as a ball screw, the worm in a worm gear might have an individual start or multiple starts – and therefore there are multiple threads, or helicies, on the worm. For a single-start worm, each complete change (360 degrees) of the worm increases the equipment by one tooth. So a gear with 24 teeth provides a gear reduced amount of 24:1. For a multi-begin worm, the apparatus reduction equals the amount of teeth on the apparatus, divided by the number of begins on the worm. (This is different from most other types of gears, where in fact the gear reduction can be a function of the diameters of the two components.)
The meshing of the worm and the apparatus is an assortment of sliding and rolling actions, but sliding contact dominates at high reduction ratios. This sliding actions causes friction and heat, which limits the performance of worm gears to 30 to 50 percent. To be able to minimize friction (and for that reason, temperature), the worm and gear are made of dissimilar metals – for example, the worm may be made of hardened steel and the gear manufactured from bronze or aluminum.
Although the sliding contact reduces efficiency, it provides extremely quiet operation. (The use of dissimilar metals for the worm and equipment also plays a part in quiet procedure.) This makes worm gears ideal for use where sound should be minimized, such as in elevators. In addition, the use of a softer material for the gear means that it could absorb shock loads, like those skilled in large equipment or crushing machines.
The primary benefit of worm gears is their ability to provide high reduction ratios and correspondingly high torque multiplication. They may also be utilized as speed reducers in low- to medium-rate applications. And, because their reduction ratio is based on the amount of gear teeth by itself, they are smaller sized than other types of gears. Like fine-pitch lead screws, worm gears are typically self-locking, which makes them ideal for hoisting and lifting applications.
Worms & Worm Gears
EP Gear’s worms and worm gears provide a highly effective answer for power transmitting applications requiring high-ratio swiftness reduction in a limited space using correct angle (90°), nonintersecting shafts. When properly used, worms and worm gears provide the smoothest, quietest form of gearing.
Because the performance of a worm gear drive depends upon the business lead angle and number of starts on the worm – and because increased performance is always a goal, the ratio should be kept only possible. To run properly, worms and worm gears used together must have the same diametral pitch and threads.
Our complete line of worms and worm gears could be ordered through the EP Equipment Guaranteed Same Day Shipment System for the quickest delivery possible.

How exactly to Select High Efficient Worm Gearbox?
The worm gear manufacturing process can be relatively simple. Nevertheless, there exists a low transmission performance problem if you don’t know the how to choose the worm gearbox. 3 basic indicate choose high worm equipment efficiency that you ought to know:
1) Helix position. The worm gear drive efficiency mostly rely on the helix angle of the worm. Generally, multiple thread worms and gears is certainly more efficient than one thread worms. Proper thread worms can increase effectiveness.
2) Lubrication. To choose a brand lubricating oil is an essential factor to improve worm gearbox effectiveness. As the proper lubrication can decrease worm gear action friction and temperature.
3) Materials selection and Gear Production Technology. For worm shaft, the material should be hardened steel. The worm gear material should be aluminium bronze. By reducing the worm equipment hardness, the friction on the worm the teeth is decreased. In worm production, to use the specialized machine for gear cutting and tooth grinding of worms can also increase worm gearbox efficiency.
From a big transmission gearbox capacity to a straight small worm gearbox load, you can choose one from an array of worm reducer that precisely suits your application requirements.
Worm Gear Box Assembly：
1) You may complete the installation in six various ways.
2) The installation should be solid and reliable.
3) Be sure to check the connection between the motor and the worm gear reducer.
4) You must make use of flexible cables and wiring for a manual installation.
With the help of the most advanced science and drive technology, we’ve developed several unique “square package” designed from high-quality aluminium die casting with a lovely appearance. The modular worm gearbox design series: worm drive gearbox, parallel shaft gearbox, bevel helical gearbox, spiral bevel gearbox, coaxial gearbox, correct angle gearbox. An NMRV series gearbox can be a typical worm gearbox with a bronze worm equipment and a worm. Our Helical gearbox product line comprises of four universal series (R/S/K/F) and a step-less quickness variation UDL series. Their framework and function act like an NMRV worm gearbox.
In the EP worm gears, the output shaft is offset by 90° from the drive shaft. A double shaft for double-sided output or a cover for the brief shaft end are elective as add-ons. EP gearboxes have a high-quality, long-term synthetic lubricant based on polyethylene glycol, and are for that reason maintenancefree. They are characterized by high effectiveness and self-locking.
Because of their relatively high backlash (~1-2°), worm gears aren’t ideal for positioning applications.
Worm Gear applications
Application of worm gears, which is similar to a standard spur and the worm, which is a cylindrical gear that resembles a screw, allows for smaller gearboxes or planetary drives, whilst retaining torque or power. It’s quite common for worm gears to have got reductions of 20:1, and actually up to 300:1 or greater.
Typical gearing includes the unique capability which other gearing components don’t have – the “worm” can effortlessly spin the part, however the “gears” cannot maneuver and fully rotate the worm-zone.
What’s the real reason for 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.
