Worm Equipment Reducers often known as worm gearbox or perhaps worm quickness reducers. Worm equipment reducers are being used for speed lowering and increasing the torque for electric power electric motor drives. You can decide to mount your NEMA electric motor to the reducer by using the NEMA C deal with flange or work with a coupling. If you desire a coupling for the result or input shaft discover our coupling section for choosing the coupling. You can expect four assemblies left palm and right palm and double productivity shaft and shaft source and shaft result. Interchangeable with many worm gear manufactures. See data sheet in product overview for diamensions. If you don’t see your type, make sure you E MAIL US.
EP GEARS also markets gear tooth measuring devices called GEAR GAGES! Gear Gages reduce mistakes, save time and money when identifying and purchasing gears. These pitch templates can be purchased in nine sets to recognize all the common pitch sizes: Diametral Pitch “DP”, Circular Pitch “CP”, External Involute Splines, Metric Module “MOD”, Stub Tooth, Fine Pitches, Coarse Pitches and Uncommon Pitches. Refer to the section on GEAR GAGES for catalog figures when ordering.
Materials recommended for worms is certainly hardened steel and bronze for worm gears. Nevertheless, depending on the application unhardened steel worms operate adequately and more economically with cast iron worm gears at 50% horsepower ratings. Furthermore to steel and hardenedsteel, worms can be found in stainless, lightweight aluminum, bronze and nylon; worm gears can be purchased in steel, hardened metal, stainless, metal, nylon and nonmetallic (phenolic).
Protection PROVISION: Worm gearing should not be used as a locking mechanism to hold hefty weights where reversing actions can cause harm or injury. In applications where potential harm is non-existent and self-locking is desired against backward rotation after that use of an individual thread worm with a minimal helix angle automatically locks the worm equipment travel against backward rotation.
