Worm Equipment Reducers also called worm gearbox or perhaps worm velocity reducers. Worm equipment reducers are used for speed decrease and increasing the torque for electrical motor drives. You can want to mount your NEMA engine to the reducer by using the NEMA C confront flange or work with a coupling. If you desire a coupling for the output or input shaft discover our coupling section for choosing the coupling. You can expect four assemblies left side and right hand and double output shaft and shaft type and shaft outcome. Interchangeable with the majority of worm gear manufactures. See info sheet in product review for diamensions. Unless you see your type, make sure you Contact Us.
EP GEARS also markets gear tooth measuring devices called Equipment GAGES! Gear Gages lessen mistakes, save time and money when identifying and ordering gears. These pitch templates can be purchased in nine sets to identify all the regular pitch sizes: Diametral Pitch “DP”, Circular Pitch “CP”, Exterior Involute Splines, Metric Module “MOD”, Stub Tooth, Good Pitches, Coarse Pitches and Uncommon Pitches. Refer to the section on GEAR GAGES for catalog quantities when ordering.
Materials recommended for worms is definitely hardened steel and bronze for worm gears. However, depending on the application unhardened metal worms operate adequately and more economically with cast iron worm gears at 50% horsepower ratings. In addition to steel and hardenedsteel, worms can be found in stainless, aluminum, bronze and nylon; worm gears are available in steel, hardened metal, stainless, metal, nylon and non-metallic (phenolic).
Protection PROVISION: Worm gearing shouldn’t be used while a locking mechanism to hold hefty weights where reversing actions could cause harm or damage. In applications where potential injury is nonexistent and self-locking is desired against backward rotation in that case use of an individual thread worm with a minimal helix angle quickly locks the worm equipment travel against backward rotation.
