worms and worm gears provide an effective answer for power transmitting applications requiring high-ratio velocity reduction in a limited space using right angle (90°), nonintersecting shafts. When properly applied, worms and worm gears provide the smoothest, quietest type of gearing.
Because the performance of a worm gear drive depends on the lead angle and number of begins on the worm – and because increased performance is always an objective, the ratio ought to be kept as low as possible. To run correctly, worms and worm gears utilized together will need to have the same worm & worm wheel diametral pitch and threads.
