Custom Worm Gears - Metric and Imperial - Large Diameter
Worms are an integral component in the worm gear. The worm is a gear in the form of a screw, which meets with a worm gear to form a worm drive. The worm can allow increased torque within an electric motor assembly by reducing the rotational speed and transmitting power.
A worm is 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. 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.
The Oliver Gear subsidiary, located in Buffalo, NY, manufactures a wide range of worms. Oliver Gear measures in both imperial and metric dimension for your global applications.
