Worm gear system with 2 input motors?

  1. Jun 10, 2014 #1
    Hi guys,

    I have 2 mini motors and a set of worm gear.
    I would like to know how to build a system that can make use of the torque from both motors at the same time so that I can double the torque without losing speed.

    thank you

    Hi nomisme,

    The two motors should connect to the same gear and rotate in the same direction (parallel assembly). The gear should rotate the worm gear.

    IMO I see no easier assembly with more torque.
