Worm & Wheel Gears

Gibbs Gears manufacture custom worms and wheels to client specification.

Info a worm drive is a gear arrangement in which a worm (which is a gear in the form of a screw) meshes with a worm gear (which is similar in appearance to a spur gear, and is also called a worm wheel). Like other gear arrangements, a worm drive can reduce rotational speed or allow higher torque to be transmitted.
