PrinciplesA worm gear is a type of interlocking gear composed of a worm shaft and worm wheel. The worm is shaped like a screw and the worm wheel is a type of gear machined to have a tooth profile with the same configuration. The operation of a worm gear is similar with that of a bolt and nut. The principle is the same as a nut that has been fixed so that it cannot rotate and therefore progresses in the axial direction when the bolt is turned. The design of a worm gear is thought of through the relationship between the rack and spur gear on the middle plane of the worm wheel.
Compared to hypoid and helical gears, worm reduction gears offer quiet and smooth operation through slip transmission.
Orthogonal shafts make space saving design possible.
