One reduction worm gearing provides high ratio reduction with few moving parts in a close-coupled compact drive. The worm gear reduer proper angle set up of driving-to-driven machine takes a the least space. Input and result shafts can be prolonged in either or both directions in horizontal or vertical arrangements adaptable to any mounting requirement. Efficient electric motor speeds are decreased to slow speed requirements of many industrial machines in a single reduction.

The exclusive utilization of the involute Helicoid Thread form (with departing side contact) on the worm and gear offers high efficiencies, and lengthy service life. The hardened floor and polished alloy metal worm develops a simple, work hardened surface area on the bronze equipment. For this reason worm gears put on in and improve with prolonged 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 serious shock loads or feasible housing damage from external sources (as in steel mills or mobile products applications) Ever-Power can offer fabricated steel housings with up to a 48″ center distances. Fabricated housings provide maximum rigidity and strength that allows the tranny of higher horsepower levels than are possible with standard cast iron models. Extra heavy side plates connect the worm and gear shaft bearing supports, assuring correct meshing of the gear under all load circumstances. In smaller sized sizes, fabricated metal reducers are interchangeable with Ever-Power standard cast iron reducers.
Ever-Power can provide custom velocity and reversed engineered reducers for your application, be it a new project or a direct drop-in replacement for a competitor’s quickness reducer. Fabricated steel reducers enable Ever-Power to complement a competitor’s footprint, centerline, and shaft elevation allowing a direct drop-in replacement saving the customer time and money.
