Ep Gear’s worm gears use right-angle (90°) non-intersecting shafts to offer an efficient remedy for electrical power transmission apps requiring high reduction ratios in confined areas. When effectively utilized, worm gears supply the smoothest and quietest form of transmission. Since the performance of a worm drive relies upon on the direct angle and the variety of stars on the worm – given that efficiency is usually the goal, this ratio need to be retained as reduced as attainable. To operate properly, the worm and worm gear utilized together must have the identical diameter, pitch and thread.
