Introduction 11 This standard fs intended as a design procedure for {fine-pitch worms and wormgearing, Fine pitch wormgearing Is segregated from coarse-pitch wormgearing fr the follow. ing reasons: a) Tooth strength, except at the coarser end of tie Sine-pitch range, is less important than durability and aceuracy. b) Because of their small size, profile deviations and tooth, contact pattems cannot be determined to the same degree of accuracy as those of coarsepitch worms and wormgears. «) Wormgear cutting equipment generally available for fine-pitch gears has definite restrictions which limit the diameter and lead range, degree of accuracy and kind of tooth contact obtainable. ) Special consideration must be given to top lands in ine-pitch hardened worms and in gear-cutting tools. ¢) In fine-pitch worms and wormgears, inter-changeability and high production are important factors. Individual matching of the worm to the gear, a3 is frequently practiced with coarse-pitch precision worms, is impractical in the case of worms of fine-pitch. } £) The methods of production and inspection of fine-pitch Wormgears are generally different from those of coarse pitch. 2.Scope and Limitation 21 This standard covers worms and wormgears with axes At right angles, comprising cylindrical worms with helical thieads, the wormgear being developed for conjugate tooth F surfacss, Tt does not include helical gears used at worm pears, [22 This standard is limited to the case where the hob for Producing the gear is a counterpart of the mating worm in ‘egard toils tooth profile, number of threads, and lead. The hhob dimension differs from the worm principally in that the outside diameter is larger to allow for resharpening and to provide bottom clearance in the wormgear, AGMA STANDARD DESIGN FOR FINE-PITCH WORMGEARING 2.3 PitchRange, Standard axial pitches are: Inches Inches Inches Inches 0.030 0.050 0.080 0.130 0.040 0.055 0.100 0.160 24 This pitch range has been established because it has the following advantages: 2) Adequate coverage. 1b) All pitches are divisible by 10 or 5. ©) Rational increase from one pitch to another based on ‘geometric series rounded out for practical reasons. 4) Ease of remembering. 25 Axial pitch has been selected as a basis for this standard for the following reasons: 8) Axial pitch establishes lead whichis a basic dimension in producing and inspecting worms. ') Axial pitch of the worm is equal to the cizcular pitch of the wormgear in the central plane 9) On commonly available wormproducing equipment, ‘only one set of change gears or one master Tead cam is required fora given lead, regardless of lead angle. 4) It conforms with well established practices in determin- ing load ratings. 2.6 Lead Angle of Worm. The lead angle should not exceed 30 deg to facilitate tool and production equipment. Lead angle may essume any value up to 30 deg as required to meet center distance and gear ratio specifications, This standard includes tables using standerdized lead angles for applications where the design requirements are fess restrictive. 2.7 Pressure Angle of Worm. The pressure angle of the cutter or grinding wheel for producing the worm is 20 deg, The normal pressure angle produced in the worm will actually be slightly smaller, and will very with the worm diameter, lead angle, and diameter of cutter or grinding wheel. Exact values for the decrease in pressure angle are given in Table 4, AGMA 374.04 ~ April, 1973, AGMA STANDARD DESIGN FOR FINE-PITCH WORMGEARING 28 The 20 deg normal pressure angle has been selected because, within the range of the standard, it avoids ‘objectionable undercutting regardless of lead angle, (29 Diameter Range of Worm. The minimum recom f mended worn pitch diameter is 0.250 in. and the maxi [mum is 2.000 in, G 210 Values of diameter for all posible combinations of lead and lead angle within this standard ate given in Table 2. This table also gives the number of threads foreach led, +211 Length of Threaded Portion of Worm. One of the factors that determines the length of the worm is the design of the wormgear blank, This has been taken into account in EA} the formula given in Table 1. 3. Tooth Form of Worm [34 The shape of the worm thread in the normal plane Is k lefined as that which is produced by a symmetrical ‘a j double-conical cutter or grinding wheel ground or dressed vith straight elements. _ 32 Worms and wormgears are so closely related to their fj method of manufacture that it is impossible to specify 3g, “early the tooth form of the wormgear without referring to gthe mating worm. For this reason, the specifications of worms should include the method of manufacture and the Aiemeter of the cutter or grinding wheel used. Likewise, for feietermining. the shipe of the generating tool, proper information about the method of producing the worm fj veads must be given to the manufacturer. Unless this is done, the tool cannot be correetly designed. 33 An alternate tooth control method is to specify the ‘mating worm part number on the wormgear drawing and to specify that the wormgear teeth must be conjugate with 2 ‘master mating worm under standard mounting conditions, 3.4 The worm profile will be @ curve which departs from a straight line by varying amounts, This departure varies with Worm diameter, lead angle, diameter of cutter or grinding wheel or rolling die (see Table 4). The tooth form of the Wormgear is understdod to be conjugate to the mating worm thread. 4. Proportions of Worm and Wormgears 41 Hardened worms and cutting tools for wormgears should have adequate top lands. The addendum and whole depth proportions are, therefore, based on the normal circular pitch of the worm and wormgear. This convention automatically results in sufficient top lands for all worms and cutting tools regardless of lead angle or axial pitch, Table 3 gives the tooth proportions based on normal pitch for all combinations of standard axial pitches and lead ‘angles. Proportions and definitions of worms and worm- gears are given in Table 1.

Backlash © 64 In fine-pitch wormgearing, the desired backlash is produced by thinning the worm threads by a suitable amount. The wormgear is cut so that its tooth thickness and space width are equal at the standard pitch diameter, 17. Profile Deviations and Pressure Angle Changes 7.1 In wormgearing, tooth contact is usually used as the means to judge tooth profile accuracy, because profile measurement on either the worm or the wormgear is not practical. Section 10 of AGMA 370.01, “Design Manual for FineFitch Gearing,” states the amount of the required initial area of contact between finepitch worms and wormgears. In the production of worms, the diameter of the cutter or grinding wheel used affects the worm pressure angle and profle. The pressure angle and profile produced by the cutter is different from that of the cutter itself. The differences depend on several factors; namely, diameter and lead angle of the worm, thickness and depth of the worm thread, and diameter of cutter or grinding wheel. 72 Table 4 gives the difference in departure from a | straight side of the worm profile and the changes in [pressure angle produced by cutters or grinding wheels of 2 } in. and 20 in. diameters, 7.2 These ‘cutters and wheel diameters represent the common range in general use. The values given in Table 4 | are useful in specifying tolerances on worm-thread profiles. They ako aid in the selection of the method for producing the worm and in specifying the hobs for wormgears. Since the values for lead angles smaller than 4 deg are too small to ~ be of any practical use, they have been omitted.

This results in a much, simpler blank as shown in Fig, 1, which is quite similar to a spur or helical gear blank, ‘The sight loss in contact can be ignored since it adds little to the load carrying capacity of fine-pitch wormgears. 7.7 Mt Is sometimes desirable to use topping hobs for producing wormgears which are required to have close control of size relation between the outside and pitch diameters. In such cases the blank is made slightly lager as shown in Fig, 2. Topping of wormgears should not be used without due consideration of the increased tooling cost. 78 The difference between the outside diameter Dp and blank diameter D,,, will vary with the pitch, Usually 0.005 0 0.010 topping stock allowance on a side is sufficient, 7.9 When wormgears are topped they will appear to have a ‘small throat which is the result of the bobbing operation. For all intents and purposes this throating is negligible and ‘blank so made is not considered to be, perse, a throated blank.
