*Design Specifications
**Worm-gear Tangential Load (Wt) 1355 lb
Friction Force (Wf) 31 lb
Rated Output Power (Fo) 2.221 hp
Power Lost in Mesh (Fl) 0.868 hp
Rated Input Power (F) 3.089 hp
Efficiency of Gearset (e) 71.9 %
Rated Output Torque (Tg) 6083 lb-in
*Compare power ratings and torque output with your requirements.
If redesign is needed, adjust design parameters (typically C).

Compare with Buckingham's Wear Equation


(Buckingham's Equation is from Shigley and Mischke pp. 985-86)
Worm-gear Load Factor (Kw) 125 (from chart)
Worm-gear Pitch Diameter (dG) 8.98 inches
Max Req Face Width (Fmax) 1.35 inches
**Worm-gear Tangential Load (Wt) 1519 lb-in

**Buckingham's Wt lacks refinement of AGMA's Wt

Materials Factor (Cs)


C <= 3 in Cs= 1995

sand-cast
dG <= 2.5 in Cs= 1000
dG > 2.5 in Cs= 735
chilled-cast
dG <= 2.5 in Cs= 1000
dG > 2.5 in Cs= 977

centrifugally cast
dG <= 2.5 in Cs= 1000
dG > 2.5 in Cs= 1079

Ratio Correction Factor (Cm)

3< mG <=20 Cm= Err:502 if mG is >20 then this cell


20< mG <=76 Cm= 0.653
mG > 76 Cm= 0.655

Velocity Factor (Cv)


Vs < 700 ft/min Cv= 0.241
700<=Vs<3000 ft/min Cv= 0.271
Vs > 3000 ft/min Cv= 0.335

Coefficient of Friction (f)


Vs = 0 f= 0.15
0 < Vs <= 10 ft/min f= 0.000304
Vs > 10 ft/min f= 0.021678
if mG is >20 then this cell will say #NUM!
