Johnson Electric’s new door lock motor product line for the automotive industry delivers high performance with the lowest power budget. A hybrid worm gear technology has been developed to replace the traditional D-cut worm gear in this application. The press fitting of the hybrid worm overcomes the inherent loose fitting disadvantages associated with traditional D-cut designs, claims the company. According to Johnson Electric, the door lock motors deploying this hybrid worm gear provide the highest performance in all critical design parameters—life cycle, pull-off force, TIR, and twisting torque. This new door lock motor product line also offers a viable alternative to brass worm gears in the most demanding applications.
