EP worm gearboxes have earned a reputation to be an industry benchmark worldwide. Our success came from our relentless drive for quality with state-of-the-art technology, all while offering worm gearboxes are affordable prices. High flexibility accorded through a wide choice of mounting options, shaft configurations and motor interfaces, makes the EP worm gearbox the default choice for the industry. The helical-worm and the double-worm version, with or without the torque limiter, add up to the advantage, creating a highly versatile drive system.
EP Worm gearboxes provide high torque with low speed gear ratio. Being simple and compact in design, these gears can achieve higher gear ratio than the helical gears. These worm reduction gears having screw type qualities are similar to helical gears, but its helix angle is typically comparatively larger) and its body is normally quite long in the axial direction. The gears in these gearboxes can be right or left-handed depending upon the purpose.
Mounting option include universal housing, side flanges, foot (horizontal and vertical), shaft mounted with torque arm. Available in Solid shafts (single or double), with torque arm or torque limiter.
Size: 1 5/8” to 17”
Ratio: 5 to 4,900
Power: 0.10 to 350 kW
Commercial & High Precision
EP manufactures worm gears using the ‘EP’ tooth form which conforms to British standard 721. The leaving side contact pattern provides for a good oil entry which results in the following benefits:
- Increased lubrication
- Increased efficiencies
- Smoother running
EP worm gears are widely respected for performance and reliability in a wide variety of drives ranging from large steel mill screw down mechanisms to high precision dual lead machine tool and rotary positioning systems.
Although EP produces worm gears to EPS 721, for greater control of manufacturing tolerances we use DIN 3962 and DIN 3974 for specifying grades of quality. Manufacturing quality is backed up by the latest inspection techniques and for high precision gears sets we can supply, in graph format, results of pitch, profile and transmission variations over 360 degrees of the worm gear set.
EP Gears is EPS EN ISO 9001:2008 approved. All products are designed and manufactured within this Quality Assurance system.

The EPM Worm Gearbox from EP is constructed from high quality materials to the highest standards. Worm Gearboxes are a cost effective solution for light to medium duty applications.
- Right angle Worm Gearboxes
- Ratios up to 100:1
- Torque up to 4000 Nm
- Input power up to 31.61 kW
- Higher ratios available with pre-stage box
- Various mounting options
- Accepts standard IEC Flange and Shaft
Our EPM Worm Gearboxes are a cost-effective solution for many applications. Whilst becoming less popular due to energy concerns – worm gears are relatively inefficient when compared to other gear designs – they still have their place.
For applications where high radial and axial loads are to be expected, we can fit taper roller bearings to increase the gearbox load capacity.
Our mechanical torque limiters can also be fitted into this gearbox style allowing protection of the gearbox itself, and the driven machine.
