 TM 124 Worm and Wheel Apparatus
 Technical Description

TM 124 permits investigations of the torques and the efficiency of the gear unit. The transmission ratio of the gear can be determined. Students learn the basic terminology of gearing in a simple manner: numbers of teeth; modulus; reference circle and axle base.
The worm gear wheel and worm are ball bearing-mounted. The forces are generated by the sets of weights and can be quickly and easily varied.
The model is intended for wall mounting. The well-structured instructional material sets out the fundamentals and provides a step-by-step guide through the experiments.

Learning Objectives / Experiments

Learning the key variables and correlations of a worm gear
- Investigating: transmission ratio, torque, friction and self-locking
- Determining efficiency
