Single reduction worm gearing provides high ratio reduction with few shifting parts in a close-coupled compact drive. The proper angle arrangement of driving-to-driven machine requires a minimum of space. Input and output shafts can be extended in either or both directions in horizontal or vertical plans adaptable to any mounting requirement. Efficient engine speeds are decreased to slower speed requirements of several industrial machines in one reduction.

The exclusive utilization of the involute Helicoid Thread form (with departing side contact) on the worm and gear provides for high efficiencies, and long service existence. The hardened surface and polished alloy steel worm develops a clean, work hardened surface area on the bronze equipment. Because of this worm gears put on in and improve with prolonged service while other gears are wearing out. Ever-Power offers a wide selection 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 devices applications) Ever-Power can provide fabricated steel housings with up to a 48″ center distances. Fabricated housings provide maximum rigidity and strength which allows the tranny of higher horsepower levels than are possible with standard cast iron products. Extra heavy side plates connect the worm and gear shaft bearing supports, assuring proper meshing of the gear under all load conditions. In smaller sized sizes, fabricated steel 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 direct drop-in replacement for a competitor’s velocity reducer. Fabricated steel reducers allow Ever-Power to complement a competitor’s footprint, centerline, and shaft height allowing a primary drop-in substitute saving the customer time and money.
