Worm Gear Set
Our worm gear sets cover a wide range of applications. We demonstrate our years of experience and high level of capacity by producing more than 1 million worm gear sets every year in-house, most of which are created according to custom specifications.
Our catalog of worm gear sets in line with the Framo Morat standard have diameters ranging from 20 to 135 mm and axial distances of 17 to 80 mm. In addition, we offer custom worm gear sets with diameters of up to 300 mm and center distances of up to 210 mm.
The catalog of worm gear sets can generally be supplied (from our) warehouse in a wide selection of axial distances and gear ratios with fine degrees of differentiation. We can also calculate and produce customer-specific axial distances and gear ratios at the plant. We prefer to produce worm gear sets for right-handed users, but these sets can be designed for left-handed users on request.
Bevel gears are used in situations where the axis of rotation of a shaft must change direction. An example of this is a car differential where the rotating prop shaft is turned through 90° to drive the wheels.
Ideally this situation would transmit the required torque with maximum efficiency whilst producing minimum noise and vibration with a system that occupies minimum space at the required ratio reduction. The various bevel gear systems have their advantages and disadvantages and compromises are needed. An alternative to a bevel gear system, if the requirements allow, could be a worm drive (or worm gear set).
It is not a rule but bevel gear axes are commonly mounted at 90° to each other.
