Solitary reduction worm gearing provides high ratio reduction with few moving 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 prolonged in either or both directions in horizontal or vertical arrangements adaptable to any installation requirement. Efficient motor speeds are decreased to slower 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 offers high efficiencies, and long service existence. The hardened ground and polished alloy steel worm develops a soft, work hardened surface area 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 add-ons from our standard product line.
If the application involves serious shock loads or feasible housing damage from external sources (as in steel mills or mobile tools 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 feasible with standard cast iron products. Extra heavy part plates connect the worm and equipment shaft bearing facilitates, assuring correct meshing of the apparatus under all load circumstances. In smaller sizes, fabricated steel reducers are interchangeable with Ever-Power regular cast iron reducers.
Ever-Power can offer custom rate and reversed engineered reducers for the application, be it a new project or a primary drop-in alternative to a competitor’s swiftness reducer. Fabricated metal reducers enable Ever-Power to match a competitor’s footprint, centerline, and shaft height allowing a primary drop-in substitute saving the client time and money.
