Worm gear with 16 cogs gear

Tuesday 5 August 2014, by zver

There are standard constructions of worm gear boxes with 8 or 24 cogs wheels. But the 8 cogs wheel is too weak. And the gear ratio with the 24 cogs wheel is too big.
There are some cases when the intermediate characteristics are needed. The 16 cogs gear suites good for it. It is strong enough and the worm gear box provide good power/speed balance. The only disadvantage is the non-integral number of units between the worm’s and wheel’s axels.

This construction can be implemented in models successfully.
