The primary advantage of worm gears is their capacity to offer substantial reduction ratios and correspondingly high torque multipliers. They can also be utilized as reducers for lower to medium velocity purposes. Also, due to the fact their reduction ratio is dependent on the quantity of tooth on the equipment, they are a lot more compact than other sorts of gears. Like wonderful pitch leadscrews, worm gears are usually self-locking, creating them perfect for hoisting and hoisting applications.
The recommended resources for the worm are hardened metal and bronze for the worm equipment. Even so, dependent on the application, unhardened metal worms can run adequately and more economically on solid iron worm gears rated at 50%. In addition to metal and hardened steel, worms are offered in stainless steel, aluminum, bronze, and nylon worm gears are available in steel, hardened steel, stainless metal, aluminum, nylon, and non-metallic (phenolic).
