This gearbox utilizes a 30:1 ratio worm-drive reduction for applications that require extremely slow and smooth rotational motion. The worm-drive design not merely minimizes backlash but also eliminates back-driving the gearmotor so a position can be kept even when power is not applied. The precision ground 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 light weight aluminum structure offers a rigid framework without adding unnecessary weight and is easily mounted to any flat work surface by utilizing the bottom mounting tabs. Our Standard Spur Gear motors will continue to work with this gearbox (electric motor marketed separately). The Vertical Shaft Worm-Drive Gearbox is perfect for turn-tables, time-lapse systems and low-quickness applications that require high precision and torque.

High reduction gear
Worm and wheel equipment pairings provide large swiftness reduction ratios with only one gear pairing in a more compact space when compared with other types of gears. You can expect up to a maximum ratio of 100:1 with this products. Another advantage of the Worm and Wheel equipment pairings is the low level noise they produce. Some disadvantages are the general low effectiveness and the fact that they generate high temperature.
Advantage of EP’s Worm Gears – “Chilly 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 reality that the metallic fibrous structure has not been cut.
2) The surface hardness after frosty rolling is increased by 1.2 to 1 1.3 times in comparison to the hardness of the original material, and the hardness of the helicoid surface area increases to around HB240 to 260.
3) Chilly rolled worms are ideal for miniature gear applications since this is often rotated smoothly without damaging the worm wheels made out of POM or other soft materials.
4) Due to the implementation of the cold rolling method, the helicoid surface area of EP-Worm (M0.5 to 2.0) comes out with a worm wheel gearbox mirror like complete. Thus, EP-Precision Frosty Rolled Worms give a smooth operation and long term durability.
Worm gears are constructed of a worm and a equipment (sometimes known as a worm wheel), with non-parallel, non-intersecting shafts oriented 90 degrees to each other. The worm can be analogous to a screw with a V-type thread, and the apparatus is usually analogous to a spur equipment. The worm is typically the driving component, with the worm’s thread advancing one’s teeth of the gear.
Just like a ball screw, the worm in a worm gear might have an individual start or multiple starts – and therefore there are multiple threads, or helicies, on the worm. For a single-start worm, each complete change (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. (This is different from almost every other types of gears, where the gear reduction is definitely a function of the diameters of both components.)
The meshing of the worm and the gear is an assortment of sliding and rolling actions, but sliding contact dominates at high reduction ratios. This sliding actions causes friction and high temperature, which limits the effectiveness of worm gears to 30 to 50 percent. To be able to minimize friction (and therefore, heat), the worm and equipment are made of dissimilar metals – for example, the worm could be made of hardened steel and the gear manufactured from bronze or aluminum.
Although the sliding contact reduces efficiency, it provides very quiet operation. (The usage of dissimilar metals for the worm and gear also plays a part in quiet operation.) This makes worm gears ideal for use where sound should be minimized, such as in elevators. Furthermore, the use of a softer materials for the apparatus means that it can absorb shock loads, like those experienced in large equipment or crushing machines.
The primary advantage of worm gears is their ability to provide high reduction ratios and correspondingly high torque multiplication. They may also be used as speed reducers in low- to medium-speed applications. And, because their decrease ratio is based on the number of gear teeth alone, they are more compact than other styles of gears. Like fine-pitch business lead screws, worm gears are usually self-locking, making them well suited for hoisting and lifting applications.
Worms & Worm Gears
EP Gear’s worms and worm gears provide an effective answer for power tranny applications requiring high-ratio swiftness reduction in a limited space using correct angle (90°), nonintersecting shafts. When properly used, worms and worm gears supply the smoothest, quietest kind of gearing.
Because the performance of a worm gear drive depends upon the lead angle and number of begins on the worm – and because increased performance is always a goal, the ratio ought to be kept only possible. To run properly, worms and worm gears used together will need to have the same diametral pitch and threads.

How to Select High Efficient Worm Gearbox?
The worm gear production process is also relatively simple. However, there is 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 position. The worm gear drive efficiency mostly depend on the helix position of the worm. Usually, multiple thread worms and gears is definitely more efficient than solitary thread worms. Proper thread worms can increase effectiveness.
2) Lubrication. To choose a brand lubricating essential oil can be an essential factor to boost worm gearbox efficiency. As the correct lubrication can decrease worm gear action friction and warmth.
3) Materials selection and Gear Production Technology. For worm shaft, the material should be hardened metal. The worm gear materials ought to be aluminium bronze. By reducing the worm gear hardness, the friction on the worm the teeth is reduced. In worm manufacturing, to use the specialized machine for gear reducing and tooth grinding of worms also can increase worm gearbox efficiency.
From a sizable transmission gearbox power to an even small worm gearbox load, you can choose one from a wide range of worm reducer that precisely fits your application requirements.
Worm Gear Container Assembly：
1) You may complete the installation in six different ways.
2) The installation should be solid and reliable.
3) Make sure to examine the connection between the electric motor and the worm gear reducer.
4) You must use flexible cables and wiring for a manual installation.
By using the innovative science and drive technology, we have developed several unique “square box” designed from high-quality aluminium die casting with a lovely appearance. The modular worm gearbox design series: worm drive gearbox, parallel shaft gearbox, bevel helical gearbox, spiral bevel gearbox, coaxial gearbox, right angle gearbox. An NMRV series gearbox can be a typical worm gearbox with a bronze worm equipment and a worm. Our Helical gearbox product line comprises of four universal series (R/S/K/F) and a step-less acceleration 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 result or a cover for the short shaft end are elective as accessories. EP gearboxes come with a high-quality, long-term synthetic lubricant based on polyethylene glycol, and so are as a result maintenancefree. They are characterized by high efficiency and self-locking.
Due to their relatively high backlash (~1-2°), worm gears are not suitable for positioning applications.
Worm Gear applications
Application of worm gears, which is comparable to a standard spur and the worm, which really is a cylindrical gear that resembles a screw, permits smaller gearboxes or planetary drives, while retaining torque or power. It is common for worm gears to have reductions of 20:1, and even up to 300:1 or greater.
Normal gearing includes the unique capability which various other gearing components do not have – the “worm” can effortlessly spin the part, but 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 constantly in place.
