Worm gear is one of gear type which mating with a worm to greatly reduce rotational speed, or allowing higher torque to be transmitted.
this type of gear can gain higher gear ratio than spur gears of the same size. worm gear can be made from different material according
to end application, some often use material is brass, stainless steel, cast iron, aluminum, Delrin and POM etc.
Worm gear material
Worm gear made from different material according to the end application, very common material such as Brass, Stainless steel
Cast iron ,Aluminum, delrin and POM
Worm gear set can operate under difficult environment and have the ability to achieve large speed reductions. the gears also can
transmit high loads at high speed ratios.
Types of Worm Gears have Non-throated, Single-throated, Double-throated.
These gears find application in Electric motors, Automotive components, machine
