    The continuing escalation of energy costs has increased the emphasis on the efficiency of drives and drive systems. Recently, manufacturers of helical based gearing mislead engineers to believe that worm gears are incapable of. running efficiencies of 90% and higher. As shown in the chart below
  • 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
  • No more "girlie man " gears
    Advanced polymers let designers replace metals in large, complex gear sets that can carry heavy loads and survive harsh environments. A washing-machine-transmission gear set features a housing and two gears with spindles that extend through the case made from long-glass-fiber-reinforced Celstran
  • Design of Plastic Gear and General Considerations of Plastic Gearing
    by hobbing or shaping, similarly to metal gears or alternatively by molding. Among the characteristics responsible for the large increase in plastic gear usage,. the following are probably the most significant: 1. Cost effectiveness of the injection-molding process. 2. Elimination of machining operations

    of torque. Unlike planetary and worm gears that rely on several groups of engaged cogs, Wave Drive gears use an elliptical core that is enveloped by a pulsator wheel and a flexible gear ring. The flexible ring's external grooves mesh with the grooves in a stationary, rigid ring that has two more teeth
