MOTION CONTROL: A new Series of metric worm gears and worm wheels from Quality Transmission Components (QTC) provides over 403 ways to transmit motion at a 90 degree angle to the shaft as an ideal solution to many power transmission design applications.
These hobbed worm gears, identified as the KWG (worm shafts) and AGSeries (worm wheels) are stocked in 4140 alloy steel for the worms and CAC702 aluminum bronze for the worm wheels. Bore diameters for worm gears range from 4mm to 250mm and worm shaft lengths range from 13mm to 32.5mm. These gears are produced by KHK Co. Ltd. under an exclusive distribution arrangement with QTC in the US.
Other power transmission solutions provided by QTC include over 7,000 off-the-shelf gears including spur, helical, miter, bevel, internal, rack, gear couplings, spline shafts, gearboxes, and other components for prototypes and production applications.
