worms and worm gears provide an effective solution for power transmission applications worm & worm wheel requiring high-ratio velocity reduction in a limited space using right angle (90°), nonintersecting shafts. When properly used, worms and worm gears supply the smoothest, quietest type of gearing.
Because the performance of a worm equipment drive depends upon the lead angle and quantity of starts on the worm – and because increased efficiency is always a goal, the ratio should be kept as low as possible. To run correctly, worms and worm gears utilized together will need to have the same diametral pitch and threads.
