Power-Core composite worm gears from Intech Corp. are said to replace industry-standard bronze gears in demanding operations to increase transmission efficiency with quieter, longer-wearing performance. A 1000 h test comparison that measured gear performance between the Intech Power-Core gear and a case-hardened ground steel worm gear recorded average noise reduction of 6 dB, with up to an 8% increase in gear transmission efficiency and no wear detected on the 6.5 PD Power Core worm gear.
