Buy worm gear

A worm gear is a mechanical device used to transmit motion between two axes. The circular gear axis runs from the center to the z axis. The worm consists of two axes that meet at their intersection. When a geared machine is used to move one machine, it is called a worm drive. This type of gear transmission is capable of transferring torque from the rotating shaft to the other piece of machine. It is also a highly controllable type of transmission, meaning the drive efficiency can be monitored and adjusted to ensure the worm moves as desired.

Why to buy worm gears

Worm gears are made of metal and can handle different loads. They also have a unique design that allows them to stop quickly. They are perfect for elevators and other similar applications. They are extremely compact, making them a great choice for elevator operations. While they cannot be used as a complete braking system, they can be an excellent complement to other components. They take up little space and are perfect for applications where space is at a premium.

The efficiency of a worm gear depends on the design and number of teeth. A double throat worm gear is made for maximum performance in heavy duty applications. The double-throat specification ensures the tightest connection between the winding worm and the gear. A wide variety of mounting options are available for this drive type. Keyway mounting is the most common way to mount a swivel gear. It requires several points of contact and helps transfer the torque. A hole is drilled in the hub and then the set screw is inserted.

We are happy to show our added value

With our modern machinery we make the parts as good as new or even better than new.

Versatility of a worm gear

Worm gears are a versatile way to transfer torque. They can increase or decrease the torque, and they can even solve or multiply the torque. This makes them perfect for use in positioning systems. The performance of a worm gear is determined by the number of straight teeth, pitch diameters and face widths. The configuration of a worm gear also determines the amount of power it can transfer and the noise level.
