Single reduction worm gearing provides high ratio reduction with few moving parts in a close-coupled compact drive. The right angle set up of driving-to-driven machine takes a minimum of space. Input and output shafts can be extended in either or both directions in horizontal or vertical plans adaptable to any mounting requirement. Efficient motor speeds are reduced to gradual speed requirements of many industrial machines in one reduction.

The exclusive use of the involute Helicoid Thread form (with departing side contact) on the worm and gear offers high efficiencies, and lengthy service life. The hardened surface and polished alloy metal worm develops a simple, work hardened surface on the bronze equipment. Because of this worm gears use in and improve with extented service while various other gears are deteriorating. Ever-Power offers a wide collection of model configurations, sizes, ratios, and add-ons 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 tools applications) Ever-Power can offer fabricated steel housings with up to 48″ center distances. Fabricated housings provide optimum rigidity and strength that allows the transmission of higher horsepower amounts than are possible with standard cast iron units. Extra heavy aspect plates worm gear reduer connect the worm and gear shaft bearing supports, 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 speed and reversed engineered reducers for your application, be it a fresh project or a direct drop-in replacement for 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 alternative saving the customer time and money.
