We can manufacture worm gears using the necessary metal or plastic to meet customer’s requirements. Metro recommends hardened steel and bronze for worm gears.

However, depending on the application unhardened steel worms operate adequately and more economically with cast iron worm gears at 50% horsepower ratings.

In addition to steel and hardened steel, worms are available in stainless, aluminum, bronze and nylon; worm gears are available in steel, hardened steel, stainless, aluminum, nylon and non-metallic (phenolic).
