plastic worm gear

Gears are the most commonly found transmission pieces. In a typical gear assembly, one toothed wheel interlocks with another. Gearboxes can be used to deliver power or switch direction.

Plastic gears, as the identity suggests are made from plastic rather than metal. These include worm gears, spur gears, helical gears, pinion gears, tooth gears, bevel gears, and planetary gears. The materials can be a blend of Nylon (Nylon PA6 or Nylon PA66) and POM (Polyoxymethylene).

Advantages of Plastic Gear:

They can easily can be found in various shapes.
Plastic gears are relatively inexpensive.
They produce lower noise compared to metal gears.
They are resistant to wear and tear because they have low friction coefficient.
Lightweight
Resistant to corrosion
Self-lubricated

These gears are used extensively in various power transmission and motion control systems. Though we have listed simply five types of plastic gears, we also give customized gears according to client’s specifications.
