Technical Info for General Purpose Aluminum Worm Gearboxes
Aluminum worm gearboxes (speed reducers) are mechanical power transmission components that drive a load at a reduced fixed ratio of motor speed. Output torque is increased; horsepower is unchanged (less efficiency losses). These models have lightweight aluminum alloy housings, intended for less frequent run rates or lesser service life than cast iron models.
