- WP worm gear reducer,also known as WP reducer, is divided into standard WPS series, standard WPD series, standard WPA, WPO.WPDA.WPDO, WPDS, WPDS and so on. The WP worm gear reducer is developed on the basis of the WD reducer. The WP worm gear reducer is made of 45# high-quality steel by heat treatment. The worm wheel is cast with tin bronze, which has good wear resistance, especially in the bearing capacity.
- It consists of a pair or pairs of meshing gears, worm gears, worms, etc., housed in a rigid, sealed enclosure, as a separate component in the machine. It is commonly used as a transmission for deceleration between the prime mover and the work machine. On the contrary, in a few occasions, such as a centrifugal compressor, it is necessary to apply a speed-increasing transmission, which is called a speed increaser.
- The WP worm gear reduceris widely used in chemical plants, mechanical machines and engineering institutions due to its compact structure, high efficiency (gear reducer), accurate and reliable transmission movement, and maintenance and use. There are many types of reducers, which can be generally classified into gears (cylindrical gears, bevel gears) and worm gear reducers.
