Single reduction worm gearing provides high ratio reduction with couple of shifting parts in a close-coupled small drive. The proper angle set up of driving-to-driven machine requires a the least space. Input and output shafts can be extended in either or both directions in horizontal or vertical plans adaptable to any installation requirement. Efficient motor speeds are decreased to slower speed requirements of several industrial machines in one reduction.

The exclusive utilization of the involute Helicoid Thread form (with departing side contact) on the worm and gear provides for high efficiencies, and long service existence. The hardened ground and polished alloy steel worm develops a even, work hardened surface on the bronze equipment. For this reason worm gears use in and improve with extented service while additional gears are deteriorating. Ever-Power offers a broad selection of model configurations, sizes, ratios, and accessories from our standard product line.
If the application involves severe shock loads or feasible housing damage from external sources (as in steel mills or mobile equipment applications) Ever-Power can offer fabricated steel housings with up to 48″ center distances. Fabricated housings worm gear reduer provide optimum rigidity and strength that allows the transmitting of higher horsepower levels than are possible with standard cast iron models. Extra heavy side plates connect the worm and equipment shaft bearing facilitates, assuring correct meshing of the gear under all load conditions. In smaller sizes, fabricated metal reducers are interchangeable with Ever-Power regular cast iron reducers.
Ever-Power can provide custom velocity and reversed engineered reducers for your application, be it a new project or a primary drop-in alternative to a competitor’s quickness reducer. Fabricated steel reducers allow Ever-Power to match a competitor’s footprint, centerline, and shaft elevation allowing a primary drop-in replacement saving the customer time and money.
