worms and worm gears worm & worm wheel provide an effective solution for power transmission applications requiring high-ratio rate reduction in a limited space using right angle (90°), nonintersecting shafts. When properly used, worms and worm gears provide the smoothest, quietest type of gearing.

Because the performance of a worm gear drive depends upon the lead angle and amount of starts on the worm – and because increased effectiveness is always a goal, the ratio should be kept only possible. To run properly, worms and worm gears used together will need to have the same diametral pitch and threads.
