Typical Bronze Worm Gear Applications
The high torque output of worm gears makes them ideal for heavily loaded machinery. Some of the most typical applications for worm gears include:
Movable bridge components
The controlled and powerful motion of worm gears are perfect for inducing movements in large and heavy bridge structures.
Elevators, lifts, packaging tools, and conveyors
Worm gears are accustomed to provide the torque needed to transport heavy loads from one point to another. The non-reversible properties of the gear also become a secondary safety braking system.
Heavy-duty construction products and trucks
Heavy vehicles often use a worm gear differential for additional power. According to the actions of the automobile, different amounts of torque may need to be delivered to each wheel. Worm gears are used to provide the necessary torque that governs each wheel’s performance.
