This gearbox utilizes a 30:1 ratio worm-drive reduction for applications that want extremely slow and smooth rotational motion. The worm-drive design not merely minimizes backlash but also eliminates back-traveling the gearmotor so a posture can be kept even when power is not applied. The precision floor 3/8” stainless steel result shaft is backed by dual 3/8” ABEC 5 ball bearings to aid a load from any orientation. The ¼” ABS plastic and aluminum structure offers a rigid framework worm wheel gearbox without adding unnecessary weight and is certainly easily mounted to any flat surface by utilizing the base mounting tabs. Our Standard Spur Gear motors will work with this gearbox (motor marketed separately). The Vertical Shaft Worm-Drive Gearbox is ideal for turn-tables, time-lapse systems and low-rate applications that require high precision and torque.

High reduction gear
Worm and wheel equipment pairings provide large swiftness decrease ratios with only one equipment pairing in a far more compact space in comparison to other types of gears. You can expect up to a maximum ratio of 100:1 with our products. Another benefit of the Worm and Wheel gear pairings may be the low level noise they produce. Some drawbacks are the general low effectiveness and the actual fact that they generate temperature.
Advantage of EP’s Worm Gears - “Frosty rolled Worm Gears”
1) The hardness of the helicoid surface has been attained by work hardening when the cold rolling was performed, providing Worm gears with better mechanical properties than machined worms due to fact that the metallic fibrous framework is not cut.
2) The surface hardness after cold rolling is increased by 1.2 to 1 1.3 times in comparison to the hardness of the initial material, and the hardness of the helicoid surface increases to around HB240 to 260.
3) Frosty rolled worms are suitable for miniature gear applications since this is often rotated smoothly without damaging the worm wheels made out of POM or various other soft materials.
4) Due to the implementation of this cold rolling method, the helicoid surface of EP-Worm (M0.5 to 2.0) comes away with a mirror like complete. Thus, EP-Precision Frosty Rolled Worms provide a smooth procedure and long-term durability.
Worm gears are constructed of a worm and a gear (sometimes referred to as a worm wheel), with nonparallel, non-intersecting shafts oriented 90 degrees to one another. The worm is definitely analogous to a screw with a V-type thread, and the gear is certainly analogous to a spur equipment. The worm is typically the generating component, with the worm’s thread advancing the teeth of the gear.
Like a ball screw, the worm in a worm gear may have an individual start or multiple starts - meaning that there are multiple threads, or helicies, on the worm. For a single-start worm, each complete switch (360 degrees) of the worm advances the gear by one tooth. Therefore a gear with 24 teeth will provide a gear reduction of 24:1. For a multi-start worm, the apparatus reduction equals the amount of teeth on the gear, divided by the amount of starts on the worm. (That is different from most other types of gears, where the gear reduction is definitely a function of the diameters of the two components.)
The meshing of the worm and the gear is a mixture of sliding and rolling actions, but sliding contact dominates at high reduction ratios. This sliding action causes friction and temperature, which limits the performance of worm gears to 30 to 50 percent. In order to minimize friction (and therefore, warmth), the worm and equipment are made of dissimilar metals - for instance, the worm could be made of hardened metal and the gear made of bronze or aluminum.
Although the sliding contact reduces efficiency, it provides extremely quiet operation. (The usage of dissimilar metals for the worm and equipment also contributes to quiet operation.) This makes worm gears suitable for use where noise should be minimized, such as in elevators. Furthermore, the usage of a softer material for the apparatus means that it can absorb shock loads, like those experienced in heavy equipment or crushing machines.
The primary benefit of worm gears is their ability to provide high reduction ratios and correspondingly high torque multiplication. They can also be used as acceleration reducers in low- to medium-acceleration applications. And, because their reduction ratio is based on the number of gear teeth alone, they are more compact than other types of gears. Like fine-pitch business lead screws, worm gears are typically self-locking, which makes them well suited for hoisting and lifting applications.
Worms & Worm Gears
EP Gear's worms and worm gears provide a highly effective answer for power tranny applications requiring high-ratio acceleration reduction in a restricted space using right angle (90°), nonintersecting shafts. When properly applied, worms and worm gears supply the smoothest, quietest form of gearing.
Because the effectiveness of a worm gear drive depends on the lead angle and quantity of starts on the worm - and because increased performance is always a goal, the ratio ought to be kept only possible. To run correctly, worms and worm gears utilized together must have the same diametral pitch and threads.

How exactly to Select High Efficient Worm Gearbox?
The worm gear manufacturing process is also relatively simple. However, there exists a low transmission effectiveness problem if you don’t know the how to select the worm gearbox. 3 basic point to choose high worm gear efficiency that you ought to know:
1) Helix angle. The worm equipment drive efficiency mostly rely on the helix position of the worm. Usually, multiple thread worms and gears can be more efficient than solitary thread worms. Proper thread worms can increase effectiveness.
2) Lubrication. To select a brand lubricating essential oil can be an essential factor to boost worm gearbox efficiency. As the proper lubrication can decrease worm equipment action friction and heat.
3) Material selection and Gear Manufacturing Technology. For worm shaft, the material should be hardened steel. The worm gear material ought to be aluminium bronze. By reducing the worm equipment hardness, the friction on the worm tooth is reduced. In worm production, to use the specific machine for gear cutting and tooth grinding of worms can also increase worm gearbox performance.
From a large transmission gearbox power to an even small worm gearbox load, you can choose one from a wide range of worm reducer that precisely suits your application requirements.
Worm Gear Box Assembly：
1) You can complete the installation in six different ways.
2) The installation must be solid and reliable.
3) Ensure that you check the connection between your electric motor and the worm gear reducer.
4) You must use flexible cables and wiring for a manual set up.
By using the innovative science and drive technology, we've developed several unique “square container” designed from high-quality aluminium die casting with a lovely appearance. The modular worm gearbox style series: worm drive gearbox, parallel shaft gearbox, bevel helical gearbox, spiral bevel gearbox, coaxial gearbox, right angle gearbox. An NMRV series gearbox is definitely a standard worm gearbox with a bronze worm gear and a worm. Our Helical gearbox product line consists of four universal series (R/S/K/F) and a step-less swiftness variation UDL series. Their framework and function act like an NMRV worm gearbox.
In the EP worm gears, the output shaft is offset by 90° from the drive shaft. A double shaft for double-sided output or a cover for the short shaft end are elective as add-ons. EP gearboxes have a high-quality, long-term synthetic lubricant on the basis of polyethylene glycol, and so are as a result maintenancefree. They are seen as a high efficiency and self-locking.
Because of their relatively high backlash (~1-2°), worm gears aren't ideal for positioning applications.
Worm Gear applications
Software of worm gears, which is comparable to a standard spur and the worm, which is a cylindrical equipment that resembles a screw, allows for smaller gearboxes or planetary drives, whilst retaining torque or power. It is common for worm gears to possess reductions of 20:1, and even up to 300:1 or greater.
Normal gearing includes the initial capability which various other gearing components do not have - the “worm” can effortlessly spin the part, however the “gears” are not able to maneuver and fully rotate the worm-zone.
What’s the real reason for this inability to rotate the gear-worm?
The angle is not deep enough on the worm, so when the gear attempts to rotate the worm, high frictional pressure between worm shaft and gear parts keep the zone stuck in position.
