Worm Gear Reducers generally known as worm gearbox or perhaps worm rate reducers. Worm gear reducers are used for speed decrease and increasing the torque for electric motor drives. You can tend to attach your NEMA motor to the reducer by using the NEMA C deal with flange or employ a coupling. If you desire a coupling for the result or input shaft check out our coupling section for choosing the coupling. You can expect four assemblies left hands and right side and double end result shaft and shaft suggestions and shaft outcome. Interchangeable with many worm equipment manufactures. See info sheet in product overview for diamensions. If you don’t see your type, make sure you E MAIL US.
EP GEARS also sells gear tooth measuring equipment called Equipment GAGES! Gear Gages reduce mistakes, save time and money when identifying and buying gears. These pitch templates are available in nine sets to identify all the common pitch sizes: Diametral Pitch “DP”, Circular Pitch “CP”, External Involute Splines, Metric Module “MOD”, Stub Tooth, Excellent Pitches, Coarse Pitches and Unusual Pitches. Refer to the section on GEAR GAGES for catalog numbers when ordering.
Materials recommended for worms is certainly hardened steel and bronze for worm gears. Even so, depending on the application unhardened steel worms operate adequately and even more economically with cast iron worm gears at 50% horsepower ratings. Furthermore to metal and hardenedsteel, worms can be found in stainless, aluminum, bronze and nylon; worm gears can be found in steel, hardened metal, stainless, light weight aluminum, nylon and nonmetallic (phenolic).
Basic safety PROVISION: Worm gearing should not be used while a locking mechanism to carry serious weights where reversing action could cause harm or damage. In applications where potential injury is non-existent and self-locking is desired against backward rotation then use of a single thread worm with a minimal helix angle quickly locks the worm gear drive against backward rotation.
