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 requires a the least space. Input and output shafts can be prolonged in either or both directions in horizontal or vertical plans adaptable to any installation requirement. Efficient engine speeds are decreased to slower speed requirements of many industrial machines in a single reduction.

The exclusive utilization of the involute Helicoid Thread form (with leaving side contact) on the worm and gear provides for high efficiencies, and lengthy service lifestyle. The hardened ground and polished alloy metal worm develops a smooth, work hardened surface on the bronze gear. For this reason worm gears use in and improve with extented service while additional gears are wearing out. Ever-Power offers a broad collection of model configurations, sizes, ratios, and accessories from our standard products.
If your application involves severe shock loads or possible housing damage from external sources (as in steel mills or mobile gear applications) Ever-Power can offer fabricated steel housings with up to 48″ center distances. Fabricated housings provide optimum rigidity and strength which allows the transmitting of higher horsepower amounts than are possible with regular cast iron units. Extra heavy side plates connect the worm and gear shaft bearing supports, assuring appropriate meshing of the apparatus under all load conditions. In smaller sizes, fabricated steel reducers are interchangeable with Ever-Power standard cast iron reducers.
Ever-Power can provide custom acceleration and reversed engineered reducers for your application, be it a new project or a direct drop-in replacement for a competitor’s rate reducer. Fabricated metal reducers allow Ever-Power to match a competitor’s footprint, centerline, and shaft height allowing a direct drop-in alternative saving the client time and money.
