One reduction worm gearing offers high ratio reduction with few moving parts in a close-coupled small drive. The proper 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 plans adaptable to any installation requirement. Efficient motor speeds are reduced to slow speed requirements of several 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 long service lifestyle. The hardened floor and polished alloy steel worm develops a clean, work hardened surface area on the bronze equipment. For this reason worm gears use in and improve with prolonged service while other gears are deteriorating. Ever-Power offers a broad selection of model configurations, sizes, ratios, and components from our standard products.
If your 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 feasible with regular cast iron devices. Extra heavy aspect plates connect the worm and worm gear reduer equipment shaft bearing facilitates, assuring appropriate meshing of the gear under all load conditions. In smaller sized sizes, fabricated steel reducers are interchangeable with Ever-Power standard cast iron reducers.
Ever-Power can offer custom acceleration and reversed engineered reducers for your application, be it a fresh project or a primary drop-in alternative to a competitor’s acceleration reducer. Fabricated steel reducers allow Ever-Power to complement a competitor’s footprint, centerline, and shaft height allowing a direct drop-in alternative saving the customer time and money.
