Status: active
Page Count: 98
ICS Code (Gears): 21.200
scope:

This document specifies formulae for calculating the load capacity of cylindrical worm gears and covers load ratings associated with wear, pitting, worm deflection, tooth breakage and temperature. Scuffing and other failure modes are not covered by this document.

The load rating and design procedures are only valid for tooth surface sliding velocities, vg , less than or equal to 25 m/s and contact ratios greater than 2,1. For wear, load rating and design procedures are only valid for tooth surface sliding velocities which are above 0,1 m/s. The rules and recommendations for the dimensioning, lubricants or materials selected by this document only apply to centre distances of 50 mm and larger. For centre distances below 50 mm, method A applies.

The choice of appropriate methods of calculation requires knowledge and experience. This document is intended for use by experienced gear designers who can make informed judgements concerning factors. It is not intended for use by engineers who lack the necessary experience. See 4.7.

WARNING - The geometry of worm gears is complex, therefore the user of this document is encouraged to make sure that a valid working geometry has been established.
