Solitary reduction worm gearing provides high ratio reduction with couple of shifting parts in a close-coupled small drive. The right angle set up of driving-to-driven machine requires a minimum of space. Input and result shafts can be prolonged in either or both directions in horizontal or vertical arrangements adaptable to any installation requirement. Efficient electric motor speeds are reduced to gradual speed requirements of several industrial machines in a worm gear reduer single reduction.

The exclusive usage of the involute Helicoid Thread form (with leaving 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 soft, work hardened surface on the bronze equipment. Because of this worm gears use in and improve with prolonged service while various other gears are wearing out. Ever-Power offers a broad selection of model configurations, sizes, ratios, and accessories from our standard product line.
If the application involves severe 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 a 48″ center distances. Fabricated housings provide optimum rigidity and strength which allows the transmitting of higher horsepower levels than are possible with standard cast iron models. Extra heavy aspect plates connect the worm and equipment shaft bearing supports, assuring proper meshing of the gear under all load circumstances. In smaller sized sizes, fabricated steel reducers are interchangeable with Ever-Power standard cast iron reducers.
Ever-Power can provide custom speed and reversed engineered reducers for your application, be it a fresh project or a primary drop-in replacement for a competitor’s velocity reducer. Fabricated steel reducers enable Ever-Power to complement a competitor’s footprint, centerline, and shaft height allowing a direct drop-in substitute saving the customer time and money.
