|When used with
Boston Gear worms, Boston Gear's worm gears provide effective
power transmission in applications requiring high-ratio speed
reduction in a limited space using right angle (90°),
non-intersecting shafts. They are also the smoothest, quietest
form of gearing when properly applied.
Boston Gear offers worm gears manufactured from a variety
of materials, such as acetal, minlon, bronze, and cast
iron to suit your application's requirements.
Note: Because the efficiency of a worm gear drive depends
on the lead angle and number of starts on the worm, the
ratio should be kept low. To run properly, worms and worm
gears operating together must have the same diametral pitch
