Solitary reduction worm gearing provides high ratio reduction with few shifting parts in a close-coupled small drive. The right angle set up of driving-to-driven machine takes a the least space. Input and result shafts can be extended in either or both directions in horizontal or vertical arrangements adaptable to any installation requirement. Efficient electric motor speeds are reduced to sluggish speed requirements of many 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 long service lifestyle. The hardened floor and polished alloy steel worm develops a soft, work hardened surface area on the bronze gear. For this reason worm gears wear in and improve with prolonged service while additional gears are wearing out. Ever-Power offers a wide selection 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 equipment applications) Ever-Power can provide fabricated steel housings with up to a 48″ center distances. Fabricated housings provide optimum rigidity and strength which allows the transmission of higher horsepower levels than are possible with standard cast iron systems. Extra heavy side plates connect the worm and equipment shaft bearing facilitates, assuring proper meshing of the gear under all load circumstances. In smaller sized sizes, fabricated metal reducers are interchangeable with Ever-Power regular cast iron reducers.
Ever-Power can provide custom velocity and reversed engineered reducers for the application, be it a new project or a primary drop-in alternative to a competitor’s velocity reducer. Fabricated steel reducers enable Ever-Power to complement a competitor’s footprint, centerline, and shaft elevation allowing a primary drop-in substitute saving the client time and money.
