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 only minimizes backlash but also eliminates back-driving the gearmotor so a position can be kept even when power isn’t applied. The precision ground 3/8” stainless steel result shaft is backed by dual 3/8” ABEC 5 ball bearings to aid a load from any orientation. The ¼” ABS plastic and aluminium structure offers a rigid framework without adding unnecessary weight and is definitely easily mounted to any flat surface by utilizing the bottom mounting tabs. Our Regular Spur Gear motors will continue to work with this gearbox (engine marketed separately). The Vertical Shaft Worm-Drive Gearbox is ideal for turn-tables, time-lapse systems and low-quickness applications that require high precision and torque.

High reduction gear
Worm and wheel equipment pairings provide large speed reduction ratios with only 1 gear pairing in a far more compact space when compared with other types of gears. You can expect up to maximum ratio of 100:1 with this products. Another benefit of the Worm and Wheel equipment pairings may be the low level noise they produce. Some drawbacks are the general low efficiency and the fact that they generate warmth.
Benefit of EP’s Worm Gears – “Frosty rolled Worm Gears”
1) The hardness of the helicoid surface has been achieved by work hardening when the cool rolling was performed, providing Worm gears with better mechanical properties than machined worms due to fact that the metallic fibrous structure is not cut.
2) The surface hardness after chilly rolling is increased by 1.2 to 1 1.3 times when compared with the hardness of the initial materials, and the hardness of the helicoid surface area increases to around HB240 to 260.
3) Frosty rolled worms are suitable for miniature equipment applications since this is often rotated smoothly without damaging the worm wheels crafted from POM or other soft materials.
4) Because of the implementation of the cold rolling technique, the helicoid surface area of EP-Worm (M0.5 to 2.0) comes away with a mirror like complete. Thus, EP-Precision Chilly Rolled Worms give a smooth operation and long term durability.
Worm gears are made of a worm and a equipment (sometimes referred to as a worm wheel), with nonparallel, nonintersecting shafts oriented 90 degrees to each other. The worm is usually analogous to a screw with a V-type thread, and the apparatus is analogous to a spur equipment. The worm is normally the driving 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 an individual start or multiple starts – and therefore there are multiple threads, or helicies, on the worm. For a single-start worm, each complete convert (360 degrees) of the worm advances the equipment by one tooth. Therefore a gear with 24 teeth provides a gear reduction of 24:1. For a multi-start worm, the apparatus reduction equals the number of teeth on the gear, divided by the number of starts on the worm. (This is different from almost every other types of gears, where the gear reduction is definitely a function of the diameters of the two components.)
The meshing of the worm and the gear is an assortment of sliding and rolling actions, but sliding contact dominates at high reduction ratios. This sliding actions causes friction and warmth, which limits the effectiveness of worm gears to 30 to 50 percent. In order to minimize friction (and therefore, temperature), the worm and equipment are made from dissimilar metals – for example, the worm may be made of hardened steel and the gear made of bronze or aluminum.
Although the sliding contact reduces efficiency, it provides extremely quiet operation. (The usage of dissimilar metals for the worm and gear also plays a part in quiet procedure.) This makes worm gears ideal for use where noise should be minimized, such as in elevators. In addition, the use of a softer materials for the apparatus means that it could absorb shock loads, like those experienced in heavy equipment or crushing machines.
The primary advantage of worm gears is their ability to provide high reduction ratios and correspondingly high torque multiplication. They can also be used as rate reducers in low- to medium-speed applications. And, because their reduction ratio is founded on the amount of gear teeth only, they are smaller sized than other styles of gears. Like fine-pitch lead screws, worm gears are usually self-locking, which makes them well suited for hoisting and lifting applications.
Worms & Worm Gears
EP Gear’s worms and worm gears provide an effective answer for power tranny applications requiring high-ratio speed reduction in a limited space using right angle (90°), nonintersecting shafts. When properly applied, worms and worm gears supply the smoothest, quietest type of gearing.
Because the effectiveness of a worm equipment drive depends upon the business lead angle and number of starts on the worm – and because increased effectiveness is always an objective, the ratio ought to 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 manufacturing process is also relatively simple. Nevertheless, there is a low transmission performance problem if you don’t know the how to select the worm gearbox. 3 basic indicate choose high worm gear efficiency that you should know:
1) Helix position. The worm equipment drive efficiency mostly depend on the helix angle of the worm. Usually, multiple thread worms and gears is more efficient than solitary thread worms. Proper thread worms can increase performance.
2) Lubrication. To choose a brand lubricating essential oil can be an essential factor to boost worm gearbox efficiency. As the proper lubrication can decrease worm gear action friction and warmth.
3) Material selection and Gear Production Technology. For worm shaft, the material ought to be hardened metal. The worm gear materials ought to be aluminium bronze. By reducing the worm equipment hardness, the friction on the worm the teeth is reduced. In worm manufacturing, to use the specialized machine for gear reducing and tooth grinding of worms can also increase worm gearbox efficiency.
From a huge transmission gearbox power to a straight small worm gearbox load, you can choose one from a wide range of worm reducer that precisely matches your application requirements.
Worm Gear Container Assembly：
1) You can complete the installation in six different ways.
2) The installation should be solid and reliable.
3) Be sure to examine the connection between your electric motor and the worm gear reducer.
4) You must use flexible cables and wiring for a manual installation.
With the help of the innovative science and drive technology, we have developed several unique “square package” designed from high-quality aluminium die casting with a lovely appearance. The modular worm gearbox style series: worm drive gearbox, parallel shaft gearbox, bevel helical gearbox, spiral bevel gearbox, coaxial gearbox, correct angle gearbox. An NMRV series gearbox is certainly a typical worm gearbox with a bronze worm gear and a worm. Our Helical gearbox products consists of four universal series (R/S/K/F) and a step-less acceleration 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 dual shaft for double-sided result or a cover for the short shaft end are elective as components. EP gearboxes come with a high-quality, long-term synthetic lubricant on the basis of polyethylene glycol, and so are therefore maintenancefree. They are characterized by high effectiveness and self-locking.
Due to their relatively high backlash (~1-2°), worm gears aren’t suitable for positioning applications.
Worm Gear applications
Software of worm gears, which is comparable to a typical spur and the worm, which really is a cylindrical equipment that resembles a screw, permits smaller gearboxes or planetary drives, whilst retaining torque or power. It is common for worm gears to have got reductions of 20:1, and even up to 300:1 or greater.
Common gearing includes the unique capability which additional gearing components don’t have – the “worm” can effortlessly spin the part, however the “gears” are not able to maneuver and fully rotate the worm-zone.
What’s the reason behind this inability to rotate the gear-worm?
The angle is not deep enough on the worm, so when the apparatus attempts to rotate the worm, high frictional pressure between worm shaft and gear parts keep the zone stuck in position.
