The primary feature of this high-efficiency gear box is a worm gear, which locks the output shaft whenever the motor is not turning. The high gear ratios of 216:1 or 336:1 make this gearbox appropriate for small walking robots, lifting mechanisms, and other applications where high torque is desired.

The primary feature of the Tamiya Worm Gearbox from Tamiya’s high-efficiency series is a worm gear, which locks the output shaft whenever the motor isn’t turning. The high gear ratios of 216:1 or 336:1 make this gearbox appropriate for small walking robots, lifting mechanisms, and other applications where high torque is desired.

The low-voltage motors in the worm gearbox run on 3-6 volts and draw up to a few amps, making them perfect candidates for the Pololu low-voltage dual serial motor controller and the DRV8833 motor driver carrier. Motor overheating can be caused by excessive stalling, even at very low voltages. We recommend that you use stall-detection sensors, or just watch your robot, to make sure that it doesn’t stall for more than a few seconds at a time.

This gearbox has a 4 mm, round output shaft, which works with the wheels that are compatible with Tamiya 4 mm, round shafts. Our 3 mm universal mounting hub also fits on the threaded end of the shaft, although it is not specifically intended to work with this type of shaft (the hub’s set screw could damage the thread on the shaft).
