Electric Columns For Ergonomic Industrial Workstations

With telescopic columns and electric linear actuator solutions for industrial workstations, enjoy smooth, quiet, and easy-to-control height adjustment. Our telescopic columns and electric linear actuators will bring ergonomics and safety to any technical workstation.


Height adjustable industrial workstations for more ergonomics and safety

Regardless of the industry, the demand for ergonomic workstations has increased significantly in recent years. While they are becoming more common in offices, they are also very popular in industrial environments. Ergonomic workstations help meet productivity requirements but also compensate for tasks that are often difficult and uncomfortable.


Industrial electric workstations allow employees to adapt the workstation to meet their needs and adopt an ergonomic posture. We know today that posture at work directly affects the health of employees and the productivity of companies. By preventing back pain and other musculoskeletal disorders, ergonomic industrial workstations limit absenteeism, demotivation, and lack of efficiency caused by pain.


Creating comfortable and safe work environments with adjustable technical workstations can help prevent these discomforts. To learn more about the impact of an ergonomic posture at work, read our dedicated article.


The structure of the worm gear DC gear motor is mainly composed of the transmission parts worm gear, shaft, bearing, box and its accessories. The gear of the transmission module is made of different materials (metal, plastic) according to the application scenario. It can be roughly divided into three basic structural parts: box, worm gear, bearing and shaft combination, modular design. At present, miniature worm gear DC gear motors are basically designed with a closed structure and have functions. At the same time, worm gear DC gear motors Has the following characteristics:


1. The mechanical structure is compact, the volume is light and small;

2. Good heat exchange performance and fast heat dissipation;

3. Easy to install, flexible and light, superior performance, easy to maintain and repair;

4. Smooth operation, low noise, and durability;

5. Strong usability, high safety and reliability.


Derry Products’ Worm Gear Motors are designed to generate high torque in a small package size. Worm Gear Motors are great for applications that require a self- locking or breaking feature since the output shaft can’t rotate when there’s no power applied. Additionally, Worm Gearheads can transfer motion in 90 degrees. With various reduction ratios,

precision cut gears, voltages and sizes,Longway’s Products has a DC Worm Gear Motor solution for your application.


In this situation,we used Longway’s DC worm gear motor,it has the characteristics of smooth operation,ultra-quiet,large torque and long life.

What Is a Worm Gear?

A worm gear is a gear consisting of a shaft with a spiral thread that engages with and drives a toothed wheel. Worm gears are an old style of gear, and a version of one of the six simple machines. Basically, a worm gear is a screw butted up against what looks like a standard spur gear with slightly angled and curved teeth.

It changes the rotational movement by 90 degrees, and the plane of movement also changes due to the position of the worm on the worm wheel (or simply "the wheel"). They are typically comprised of a steel worm and a brass wheel.

How Worm Gears Work

An electric motor or engine applies rotational power via to the worm. The worm rotates against the wheel, and the screw face pushes on the teeth of the wheel. The wheel is pushed against the load.

Worm Gear Uses

There are a few reasons why one would choose a worm gear over a standard gear.

The first one is the high reduction ratio. A worm gear can have a massive reduction ratio with little effort - all one must do is add circumference to the wheel. Thus you can use it to either greatly increase torque or greatly reduce speed. It will typically take multiple reductions of a conventional gearset to achieve the same reduction level of a single worm gear - meaning users of worm gears have fewer moving parts and fewer places for failure.

A second reason to use a worm gear is the inability to reverse the direction of power. Because of the friction between the worm and the wheel, it is virtually impossible for a wheel with force applied to it to start the worm moving.

On a standard gear, the input and output can be turned independently once enough force is applied. This necessitates adding a backstop to a standard gearbox, further increasing the complication of the gear set.


Electric linear actuation solutions for ergonomic industrial workstations

With over 15 years of expertise in electric linear actuation, Derry provides lifting columns and electric linear actuators specifically designed for industrial and technical workstations.
