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 only minimizes backlash but also eliminates back-traveling the gearmotor so a posture can be kept even when power is not applied. The precision ground 3/8” stainless steel output shaft is supported by dual 3/8” ABEC 5 ball bearings to support lots from any orientation. The ¼” ABS plastic and light weight aluminum structure provides a rigid framework without adding unnecessary weight and is definitely easily installed to any flat work surface by utilizing the base mounting tabs. Our Standard Spur Gear motors will work with this gearbox (electric motor offered separately). The Vertical Shaft Worm-Drive Gearbox is ideal for turn-tables, time-lapse systems and low-acceleration applications that want high precision and torque.

High reduction gear
Worm and wheel equipment pairings provide large rate reduction ratios with only one gear pairing in a more compact space when compared with other types of gears. We offer up to maximum ratio of 100:1 with our products. Another benefit of the Worm and Wheel gear pairings is the low level noise they produce. Some disadvantages will be the general low efficiency and the actual fact that they generate temperature.
Advantage of EP’s Worm Gears – “Chilly rolled Worm Gears”
1) The hardness of the helicoid surface area has been achieved by work hardening when the cool rolling was performed, providing Worm gears with better mechanical properties than machined worms because of truth that the metallic fibrous structure has not been cut.
2) The top hardness after chilly rolling is increased by 1.2 to at least one 1.3 times when compared with the hardness of the original material, and the hardness of the helicoid surface increases to around HB240 to 260.
3) Cold rolled worms are suitable for miniature equipment applications since this is often rotated smoothly without damaging the worm wheels made out of POM or other soft materials.
4) Because of the implementation of the cold rolling method, the helicoid surface of EP-Worm (M0.5 to 2.0) comes away with a mirror like finish. Thus, EP-Precision Frosty Rolled Worms provide a smooth operation and long-term durability.
Worm gears are made of a worm and a equipment (sometimes referred to as a worm wheel), with non-parallel, non-intersecting shafts oriented 90 degrees to one another. The worm is analogous to a screw with a V-type thread, and the gear is worm wheel gearbox certainly analogous to a spur gear. The worm is typically the generating component, with the worm’s thread advancing the teeth of the gear.
Such as 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 full change (360 degrees) of the worm advances the gear by one tooth. So a gear with 24 teeth will provide a gear reduced amount of 24:1. For a multi-begin worm, the apparatus reduction equals the amount of teeth on the gear, divided by the number of starts on the worm. (That is different from almost every other types of gears, where in fact the gear reduction is certainly a function of the diameters of both components.)
The meshing of the worm and the apparatus is an assortment of sliding and rolling actions, but sliding contact dominates at high reduction ratios. This sliding action causes friction and warmth, which limits the performance of worm gears to 30 to 50 percent. In order to minimize friction (and therefore, temperature), the worm and gear are made of dissimilar metals – for instance, the worm may 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 utilization of dissimilar metals for the worm and equipment also plays a part in quiet procedure.) This makes worm gears ideal for use where noise should be minimized, such as for example in elevators. In addition, the usage of a softer materials for the gear means that it could absorb shock loads, like those skilled in heavy equipment or crushing devices.
The primary benefit of worm gears is their capability to provide high reduction ratios and correspondingly high torque multiplication. They may also be used as speed reducers in low- to medium-swiftness applications. And, because their reduction ratio is based on the number of gear teeth alone, they are smaller sized than other styles of gears. Like fine-pitch business lead screws, worm gears are usually self-locking, which makes them perfect for hoisting and lifting applications.
Worms & Worm Gears
EP Gear’s worms and worm gears provide a highly effective answer for power transmitting applications requiring high-ratio rate reduction in a restricted space using correct angle (90°), nonintersecting shafts. When properly used, worms and worm gears provide the smoothest, quietest kind of gearing.
Because the effectiveness of a worm equipment drive depends upon the lead angle and amount of begins on the worm – and because increased efficiency is always an objective, the ratio ought to be kept as low as possible. To run properly, worms and worm gears utilized together must have the same diametral pitch and threads.

How to Select High Efficient Worm Gearbox?
The worm gear manufacturing process is also relatively simple. However, there exists a low transmission performance problem if you don’t know the how to select the worm gearbox. 3 basic point to choose high worm equipment efficiency that you ought to know:
1) Helix angle. The worm gear drive efficiency mostly depend on the helix angle of the worm. Generally, multiple thread worms and gears can be more efficient than solitary thread worms. Proper thread worms can increase efficiency.
2) Lubrication. To choose a brand lubricating oil is an essential factor to improve worm gearbox performance. As the correct lubrication can reduce worm gear action friction and high temperature.
3) Materials selection and Gear Manufacturing Technology. For worm shaft, the material should be hardened steel. The worm gear materials should be aluminium bronze. By reducing the worm equipment hardness, the friction on the worm tooth is decreased. In worm manufacturing, to use the specific machine for gear trimming and tooth grinding of worms also can increase worm gearbox performance.
From a large transmission gearbox power to an even small worm gearbox load, you can choose one from an array of worm reducer that precisely matches your application requirements.
Worm Gear Container Assembly：
1) You can complete the set up in six various ways.
2) The installation must be solid and reliable.
3) Ensure that you check the connection between your motor and the worm gear reducer.
4) You must use flexible cables and wiring for a manual installation.
By using the most advanced science and drive technology, we have developed several unique “square container” designed from high-quality aluminium die casting with a beautiful appearance. The modular worm gearbox style series: worm drive gearbox, parallel shaft gearbox, bevel helical gearbox, spiral bevel gearbox, coaxial gearbox, correct angle gearbox. An NMRV series gearbox can be a typical 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 acceleration variation UDL series. Their framework and function are similar to an NMRV worm gearbox.
In the EP worm gears, the output shaft is offset by 90° from the drive shaft. A dual shaft for double-sided output or a cover for the brief shaft end are optionally available as add-ons. EP gearboxes have a high-quality, long-term synthetic lubricant on the basis of polyethylene glycol, and so are consequently maintenancefree. They are characterized by high effectiveness 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 similar to a typical spur and the worm, which is a cylindrical equipment that resembles a screw, allows for smaller gearboxes or planetary drives, while retaining torque or power. It is common for worm gears to have reductions of 20:1, and also up to 300:1 or greater.
Common gearing includes the initial capability which additional gearing components do not have – the “worm” can effortlessly spin the part, but the “gears” cannot maneuver and fully rotate the worm-zone.
What’s the reason behind this inability to rotate the gear-worm?
The angle is not deep enough on the worm, so when the apparatus attempts to rotate the worm, high frictional pressure between worm shaft and gear parts keep carefully the zone stuck in position.
