Bases for Calculation ZAR3 calculates all dimensions of worm gears with ZI, ZA, ZK, ZN or ZH worms, as well as efficiency, tooth forces and the safety margins against root fatigue fracture and pitting.

Pre-dimensioning 1/10

Or by varying the axial distance ratio and addendum modification you can determine the optimum worm gear for your application. drive rotational speed and material. drive power.htm 2/10 .hexagon. as well as the efficiency of the gear. Strength Calculation The strength calculation computes the factors SF (fatigue fracture) and SH (pitting) along with tooth forces on the worm and worm gear. The recommendations can be used in the following geometry and strength calculations. http://www.2/7/2012 ZAR3 Worm Gear Calculation In pre-dimensioning recommendations are made for axial distance. Geometry Calculation In dimensioning you can adjust the recommended values to match available sizes or company standards. modulus and number of teeth based on gear
