The functional principle of worm gear sets has been unchanged for over 100 years: A spiral-shaped worm engages into a gear, forming what is called a worm gear. The axles here are shifted by 90°. Worm gears are generally used where high gear ratios (up to 150:1) have to be achieved in one step. In doing so, the high speed of an electric motor can be converted into a high torque at a slow speed.
For manufacturers of transmissions, motors and drives, Framo Morat worm gear sets are the embodiment of maximum precision and reliable, durable function. Whether in drives of automatic doors and gates, in actuators for aligning dish antennas, in linear drives of handling systems, in dosing pumps for the chemical industry or in motorized gardening tools – our worm gear sets are used successfully in numerous applications and industries.
