Worm Gears & Shafts

Worm Gear Gears For Africa

A worm wheel is typically a cylindrical shaped gear and are paired with a worm shaft which is a screw shaped gear shaft. The paired gears are called Worm Gears and they are used to transmit motion and power between non-parallel, non-intersecting shafts.
They maintaining a quiet and smooth operation whilst offering large gear ratios and capabilities for significant speed reduction.

Worm gears are used in equipment where self-locking mechanisms are required because of their distinct characteristics. This characteristic is that the worm can turn the worm wheel, but the worm wheel may not be able to turn the worm due to the angle of the worm.

Some of the cons of worm gears are their low transmission efficiency, as well as the necessity to continuously lubricate the gears due to the amount of friction generated between the worm wheel and worm gear.
