Drive type

Worm gear drives

Peiseler uses three-piece worm gears, a well-known design developed by Ott. These gears consist of a worm wheel and a two-piece worm, the shank worm and hollow worm. During assembly, we adjust the gear so it is backlash-free. Readjusting the worm during its service life is simple with a commercially available mounting tool. The design advantages are a compact gear ratio, high mechanical precision and the control's excellent regulatory quality. Heat limits the duty cycle.

The benefits for you

  • Simple commissioning/easy installation

  • Easily adjustable worm gear

  • Maximum drive moment and low backlash

  • Self-braking (safety feature)

  • Cost-effective solution for positioning applications
