Single reduction worm gearing provides high ratio reduction with few shifting parts in a close-coupled small drive. The proper angle set up of driving-to-driven machine takes a minimum of space. Input and result shafts can be prolonged in either or both directions in horizontal or vertical plans adaptable to any installation requirement. Efficient electric motor speeds are reduced to slower speed requirements of many industrial machines in one reduction.

The exclusive utilization of the involute Helicoid Thread form (with leaving side contact) on the worm and gear provides for high efficiencies, and long service life. The hardened floor and polished alloy steel worm develops a even, work hardened surface on the bronze equipment. Because of this worm gears use in and improve with prolonged service while other gears are wearing out. Ever-Power offers a wide collection of model configurations, sizes, ratios, and components from our standard products.
If the application involves severe shock loads or feasible housing damage from external sources (as in steel mills or mobile apparatus applications) Ever-Power can offer fabricated steel housings with up to a 48″ center distances. Fabricated housings provide maximum rigidity and strength which allows the transmission of higher horsepower amounts than are feasible with regular cast iron devices. Extra heavy side plates connect the worm and gear shaft bearing facilitates, assuring proper meshing of the gear under all load circumstances. In smaller sized sizes, fabricated steel reducers are interchangeable with Ever-Power standard cast iron reducers.
Ever-Power can offer custom swiftness and reversed engineered reducers for the application, be it a new project or a direct drop-in alternative to a competitor’s speed reducer. Fabricated steel reducers enable Ever-Power to complement a competitor’s footprint, centerline, and shaft height allowing a direct drop-in replacement saving the client time and money.
