Details

Boston Gear worms and worm gears provide an effective answer for such power transmission applications as high-ratio speed reduction, limited space, right-angle shafts and non-intersecting shafts. When properly applied, they are the smoothest and quietest form of gearing. Steel worms and cast iron or bronze worm gears having throated teeth are available in single or multiple threads, 48 to 3 diametral pitch or up to 85" pitch diameter. Acetal worms and worm gears are available in 48, 32 and 24 diametral pitches.

The efficiency of a worm gear drive depends on the lead angle and number of starts on the worm. The angle generally decreases with increasing ratio and worm pitch diameter. For increased efficiency the ratio should be kept low.
