Worm Gears

Custom Worm Gears

Avon Gear and Engineering specializes in precision cut worm gears for applications requiring high-ratio speed reduction in a limited space. Our gears and worms are engineered and manufactured to exacting standards and specifications. From conventional to unconventional, simple to complex, Avon is capable of producing the best engineered solution for any application.

We manufacture gears for many industries, from small to large, in a variety of materials and size ranges. Avon Gear and Engineering uses state-of-the-art technology, not only in the manufacturing process but in monitoring quality as well. Our engineers know that the end result is only as good as the blank they start with, so we machine our own blanks to maintain the highest quality standards.

Worm gears are typically used when large gear reductions are needed; it is common for worm gears to have reductions of 25:1 and higher. When engineered correctly, worm gears provide continuous, dependable, smooth and quiet running gearing.
