One reduction worm gearing offers high ratio reduction with couple of shifting 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 mounting requirement. Efficient electric motor speeds are reduced to slow speed requirements of many 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 lengthy service life. The hardened ground and polished alloy steel worm develops a clean, work hardened surface area on the bronze gear. For this reason worm gears put on in and improve with extented service while other gears are wearing out. Ever-Power offers a broad collection of model configurations, sizes, ratios, and components from our standard product line.
If your application involves serious shock loads or possible housing damage from external sources (as in steel mills or mobile equipment applications) Ever-Power can offer fabricated steel housings with up to 48″ center distances. Fabricated housings provide maximum rigidity and strength which allows the transmitting of higher horsepower amounts than are feasible with standard cast iron units. Extra heavy side plates connect the worm and gear shaft bearing supports, assuring correct 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 velocity and reversed engineered reducers for your application, be it a new project or a direct drop-in replacement for a competitor’s quickness 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.
