Worm Gears - Precision Large Volume Manufacturer
Worm gears are used when large gear reductions are necessary. Common reductions for worm gears can be 20:1 and even greater than 300:1.
Worm gears are used to reduce speed in a single direction. As the speed is reduced, power increases to the drive mechanism. Worm gears are an excellent choice for small electric motors where decreased speed and increased power are important to the application.
The worm can easily turn the gear mechanism. However, the gear cannot turn the worm. The friction between the gear and worm holds the worm in place. This unique property makes worm gears a preferred solution for many types of conveyor systems.
Nixon Gear, a Gear Motions subsidiary, which offers precision worm gearings, is able to respond to larger volume Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) demands. When you want large worm gears manufactured with precision, turn to Nixon Gear.
