Worm Equipment Reducers also known as worm gearbox or perhaps worm acceleration reducers. Worm equipment reducers are used for speed decrease and raising the torque for electric powered motor drives. You can tend to mount your NEMA motor to the reducer utilizing the NEMA C deal with flange or work with a coupling. If you desire a coupling for the output or input shaft find our coupling section for choosing the coupling. You can expect four assemblies left side and right side and double result shaft and shaft type and shaft result. Interchangeable with most worm gear manufactures. See data sheet in product summary for diamensions. Unless you see your type, please Contact Us.
EP GEARS also sells gear tooth measuring devices called Equipment GAGES! Gear Gages decrease mistakes, save time and money when identifying and purchasing gears. These pitch templates can be found in nine sets to identify all the typical pitch sizes: Diametral Pitch “DP”, Circular Pitch “CP”, External Involute Splines, Metric Module “MOD”, Stub Tooth, Fine Pitches, Coarse Pitches and Unusual Pitches. Refer to the section on GEAR GAGES for catalog numbers when ordering.
Materials recommended for worms is definitely hardened steel and bronze for worm gears. On the other hand, depending on the application unhardened steel worms operate adequately and more economically with cast iron worm gears at 50% horsepower ratings. Furthermore to metal and hardenedsteel, worms can be purchased in stainless, lightweight aluminum, bronze and nylon; worm gears are available in steel, hardened steel, stainless, aluminium, nylon and nonmetallic (phenolic).
SAFETY PROVISION: Worm gearing should not be used while a locking mechanism to carry hefty weights where reversing action can cause harm or injury. In applications where potential harm is non-existent and self-locking is ideal against backward rotation then use of a single thread worm with a low helix angle quickly locks the worm equipment drive against backward rotation.
Our company is attempting to get to new sorts of metric worm gears, find out more at our site.
