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

The exclusive usage of the involute Helicoid Thread form (with departing side contact) on the worm and gear provides for high efficiencies, and lengthy service life. The hardened surface and polished alloy steel worm develops a simple, work hardened surface area on the bronze gear. For this reason worm gears wear in and improve with extented service while various other gears are deteriorating. Ever-Power offers a broad collection of model configurations, sizes, ratios, and add-ons from our standard product line.
If the application involves serious shock loads or possible housing damage from external sources (as in steel mills or mobile products applications) Ever-Power can provide fabricated steel housings with up to 48″ center distances. Fabricated housings provide optimum rigidity and strength that allows the transmitting of higher horsepower amounts than are possible with standard cast iron devices. Extra heavy side plates connect the worm and equipment shaft bearing supports, assuring appropriate meshing of the apparatus under all load circumstances. In smaller sized sizes, fabricated steel reducers are interchangeable with Ever-Power regular cast iron reducers.
Ever-Power can provide custom rate and reversed engineered reducers for the application, be it a new worm gear reduer project or a primary drop-in replacement for a competitor’s acceleration reducer. Fabricated metal reducers enable Ever-Power to complement a competitor’s footprint, centerline, and shaft height allowing a primary drop-in replacement saving the client time and money.
