Worm gears transmit power through right angles on non-intersecting shafts. Worm gears produce thrust load and are good for high shock load applications. They are often used in lower horsepower applications.
Worm gears are used in presses, rolling mills, conveyor equipment, mining industry machines, and rudders. Worm gears are used on many lift/elevator and escalator-drive applications due to their compact size and the non-reversibility of the gear.
