worm & worm wheel

worms and worm gears provide an worm & worm wheel effective answer for power tranny applications requiring high-ratio speed reduction in a restricted space using right angle (90°), nonintersecting shafts. When properly used, worms and worm gears provide the smoothest, quietest kind of gearing.

Because the performance of a worm equipment drive depends on the lead angle and quantity of starts on the worm – and because increased effectiveness is always an objective, the ratio should be kept only possible. To run correctly, 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 Boston Gear Guaranteed Same Time Shipment Program for the quickest delivery possible.
