Plastic Worm Gear – 6mm D shape bore
The worm gear is a special type of arrangement which has gear in the form of a screw, making it worm gear. It meshes with a spur gear, transmits the power from the DC motor. The worm gear and spur gear attachment acts as a gear reducer which reduces the motor speed inversely increasing the torque of the setup. The worm gear has a wide range of applications, used mainly in the robotic gripper or the end effector to convert rotational motion to linear motion of the fingers. Other applications are used as a gear reducer in the toys to overcome the ground stall torque.
