One reduction worm gearing provides high ratio reduction with couple of moving parts in a close-coupled small drive. The proper 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 plans adaptable to any mounting requirement. Efficient motor speeds are decreased to gradual 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 provides for high efficiencies, and lengthy service existence. The hardened ground and polished alloy steel worm develops a clean, work hardened surface area on the bronze equipment. Because of this worm gears use in and improve with extented service while other gears are deteriorating. Ever-Power offers a broad collection of model configurations, sizes, ratios, and accessories from our standard product line.
If your application involves serious 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 48″ center distances. Fabricated housings provide maximum 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 gear shaft bearing supports, assuring proper meshing of the gear under all load circumstances. In smaller sizes, fabricated metal reducers are interchangeable with Ever-Power standard cast iron reducers.
Ever-Power can provide custom speed and reversed engineered reducers for the application, be it a new project or a direct drop-in replacement for a competitor’s velocity reducer. Fabricated steel reducers enable Ever-Power to match a competitor’s footprint, centerline, and shaft elevation worm gear reduer allowing a direct drop-in alternative saving the client time and money.
