low backlash worm drive

We perform all main soft and hard machining measures in-house, including annealing in our own ovens. Thanks to extensive production depth, we are able to execute even highly complex machining tasks exactly according to customer objectives and in the highest quality. Learn more about it here.
All versions include a installation flange and optional foot mounting and torque arm. Due to this, these drive systems can be optimally integrated into existing applications. The mixture of a low backlash worm drive helical input stage and a hypoid result stage results in ratio ranges which can be covered by the single-stage bevel (wheel) and hypoid gear unit or by the single-stage helical-worm gear unit with high tranny quality. The circumferential backlash remains constantly low through the entire gear unit’s service existence.

The catalog of worm gear sets can generally be supplied ex warehouse in a broad selection of axial distances and gear ratios with fine degrees of differentiation. We are able to also calculate and generate customer-specific axial distances and gear ratios at the plant. We prefer to produce worm gear units for right-handed users, but these sets can be designed for left-handed users on demand.

Our catalog of worm equipment sets based on the Framo Morat regular have diameters ranging from 20 to 135 mm and axial distances of 17 to 80 mm. Furthermore, we offer custom worm gear pieces with diameters of up to 300 mm and center distances of up to 210 mm.

Kinematics’ ZE zero-backlash slewing drives are designed with our patented hourglass worm technology, maximizing total gear contact while eliminating the deadband. This innovative design delivers unprecedented levels of positioning accuracy, excellent operational reliability, minimal warmth generation and excellent acceleration control in these extremely demanding engineering applications.
Our worm gear units cover an array of applications. We demonstrate our years of experience and higher level of capacity by producing a lot more than 1 million worm gear models every year in-house, the majority of which are created according to custom specifications.
