Worm gear motors

Worm gear motors are an economical solution for drives in high-torque applications. Their compact size means mounting is easy, even in tight spaces.

Worm gear motors: powerful transmission in a compact form

A worm gear motor is the obvious choice if a machine builder has an application where the driveline requires a gear unit capable of achieving reduction ratios of up to 100:1 in a compact configuration. BEGE has the right worm gear motor for every application. All our products are durable, cost-effective and easy to mount.

Wormwiel motorreductoren bij BEGE

High gear ratios & high torque

Gear reduction ratios from 7:1 to 100:1 and a maximum torque of 10,500 Nm. Shock-resistant and available for immediate delivery.

Compact and easy to mount

Mounting is fast and easy thanks to our worm gear motors’ compact size, universal design and multiple mounting points.

Self-locking capability

In many cases, BEGE worm gear motors are self-locking. So, a belt or winch, e.g., will not run in reverse, eliminating the need to add a (large) motor brake.



When winding up a winch, power is more important than speed. This is a great application for a worm gear motor. Not least because of this type of gearbox’s self-locking ability and high gear ratio. This prevents the winch from unspooling unintentionally.


Trawling nets requires a lot of power. Worm gear motors can provide that power. Furthermore, the power is always transmitted dependably thanks to the relatively large amount of contact between worm and worm gear.

Food & Beverage Industry

BEGE also stocks a line of stainless steel products. These are specially designed for food production and processing applications. They have a smooth surface without cavities for dirt to accumulate, and are easily cleaned using a pressure washer.
