New Adjustment System for Dual Lead Worm Gear Sets

Dual lead adjustment mechanism


Renold Gears has launched a new, high precision adjustment mechanism, Ren-Adjust, for its DL Series dual lead worm gears used on positional machinery requiring a high degree of accuracy, such as rotary tables and machine tools. The new system, for precisely adjusting backlash, is quick and simple to operate, by comparison to alternative systems, reducing downtime whenever an adjustment needs to be made.

The new Ren-Adjust mechanism has been designed as a simple replacement on existing machinery and can also be specified by machine tool and rotary table manufacturers as a like-for-like component, in many cases with no need to modify existing designs. Renold's system can therefore replace that of most other manufacturers without any redesign or modifications. This makes it easy for OEMs to switch to the Renold product and equally simple for machine operators to replace their existing equipment.

Ren-Adjust permits precise adjustment without the need to remove the wormshaft or drain oil. It is quick and easy to use and cuts adjustment downtime to a minimum. The size range of the DL series adjustment mechanism covers centre distances from 67 to 500mm.
