Worm Gear Reducers
Rebuild & Replace
Worm Gear motors consist of two parts, an input worm or screw and an output gear. Worm Gear motors allow for excellent torque. Their simple construction also makes them a favorite for many situations.
What Are Worm Gear Motors
Worm gear motors or worm drive speed reducers consist of a gear (often referred to as the worm wheel), and a worm (usually a V-threaded screw). The motor is attached to the gear, which then rotates the worm to create the motor output. There are also right-angle worm gearboxes and gear reducers, which allow for compact designs.
The main benefit of using worm gear motors is their ability to provide significant gear reduction ratios and therefore extremely high torque multiplication. Worm Gear Motors are quiet and self-locking, making them great for lifting applications like elevators.
