Abstract

The less efficiency of gear box of a machine tool is a serious problem as it increases maintenance cost and
also affects the reputation of a firm. Hence its life has to be increased and should be made more reliable. The work to be
done here is to find and rectify the causes of failure thereby improving the life of it. Also bearing failure should be
reduced which is a cause of system failure. The alternative for the above problem is to design and optimization of a worm
and worm gear box which reduced maintenance and improved reliability, lack of lubrication requirements, precise peak
torque transmission, inherent overload protection, physically isolated input and output shafts, misalignment tolerance,
and low acoustic noise and vibration etc. The parameters considered in the research are Lead Angle, Backlash and
Bearing failure.
