One reduction worm gearing offers 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 result shafts can be extended in either or both worm gear reduer directions in horizontal or vertical arrangements adaptable to any mounting requirement. Efficient engine speeds are decreased to sluggish speed requirements of several industrial machines in one reduction.

The exclusive utilization of the involute Helicoid Thread form (with leaving side contact) on the worm and gear offers high efficiencies, and long service existence. The hardened surface and polished alloy metal worm develops a easy, work hardened surface area on the bronze gear. For this reason worm gears put on in and improve with extented service while various other gears are deteriorating. Ever-Power offers a broad selection 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 optimum rigidity and strength that allows the transmitting of higher horsepower levels than are feasible with standard cast iron systems. Extra heavy side plates connect the worm and equipment shaft bearing supports, assuring correct meshing of the gear under all load circumstances. In smaller sized sizes, fabricated metal reducers are interchangeable with Ever-Power regular cast iron reducers.
Ever-Power can offer custom velocity and reversed engineered reducers for the application, be it a new project or a primary drop-in replacement for a competitor’s swiftness reducer. Fabricated steel reducers enable Ever-Power to complement a competitor’s footprint, centerline, and shaft elevation allowing a primary drop-in substitute saving the customer time and money.
