  • Worm-gear reducers reach new heights
    forming and percolating to the outside. Worm-gear speed reducers have offered a rugged, adaptable, and cost-effective method of power transmission for nearly a century. But their acceptance in recent years has been somewhat diminished by inherent inefficiency and a reputation for eventually developing oil
    technical improvements. These gains in efficiency combined with the advantages of lower initial cost, higher overload capacity and durability are powerful arguments for continued wide-spread use of worm gear reducers. These arguments are strengthened by comparative evaluation of realistic efficiencies
  • When Worm Gearboxes Need to be Backdriven, Disengaged or Torque Limited
    Worm gearboxes and speed reducers can be very cost effective torque multipliers, especially as ratios climb above 10:1 or 12:1. They can typically achieve ratios up to 100:1 in a single gear stage which drastically reduces the component count of other gear types with these ratios. That, along
  • No more "girlie man " gears
    for its dimensional stability over a broad temperature range, as well as its good chemical resistance and ease of processing. But cost alone is often a stronger motivator for designers to investigate plastic gear materials. Plastics frequently get chosen over metal because of multiple cost
  • PM Brings Satellite TV to RVs
    on these was more cost effective than wrought metal gears, " he adds. PM-part maker Symmco Inc., Sykesville, Pa., collaborated with Winegard to design components and tooling for both the skew and elevation mechanisms while keeping manufacturing efficiency in mind. For instance, the motor drive's PM pinion
