Gearboxes, also known as enclosed gear drives or worm gear speed reducers, are mechanical power transmission drive components that can drive a load at a reduced fixed ratio of the motor speed. The output torque is also increased by the same ratio, while the horsepower remains the same (less efficiency losses.) A 10:1 ratio worm gearbox outputs approximately the same motor output horsepower, motor speed divided by 10, and motor torque multiplied by 10.
Aluminum gearboxes feature hollow-shaft outputs (all the way through from one side to the other). For the aluminum gearboxes we also offer optional single and double output shafts, output flanges, torque arms, and output covers.
Worm gearboxes contain a worm-type gear on the input shaft, and a worm-type mating gear on the output shaft. Worm gearboxes also change the drive direction.
AutomationDirect's worm gearboxes are manufactured in an ISO9001 certified plant by one of the leading worm drive gearbox manufacturers in the world today. Only the highest quality materials are tested, certified, and used in the manufacturing process. Strict adherence to and compliance with the toughest international and U.S. testing standards and manufacturing procedures assure you the highest quality products.
