Solitary reduction worm gearing provides high ratio reduction with few shifting parts in a close-coupled compact drive. The right 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 arrangements adaptable to any installation requirement. Efficient motor speeds are decreased to sluggish speed requirements of many industrial machines in one reduction.

The exclusive use of the involute Helicoid Thread form (with departing side contact) on the worm and gear offers high efficiencies, and long service life. The hardened floor and polished alloy steel worm develops a easy, work hardened surface area on the bronze equipment. For this reason worm gears put on 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 your application involves serious shock loads or feasible housing damage from external sources (as in steel mills or mobile products applications) Ever-Power can provide 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 possible with standard cast iron models. Extra heavy side plates connect the worm and gear shaft bearing facilitates, assuring appropriate meshing of the gear under all load conditions. In smaller sized sizes, fabricated metal reducers are interchangeable with Ever-Power standard cast iron reducers.
Ever-Power can provide custom speed and reversed engineered reducers for your application, be it a new project or a direct drop-in alternative to a competitor’s rate reducer. Fabricated steel reducers allow Ever-Power to complement a competitor’s footprint, centerline, and shaft elevation allowing a direct drop-in alternative saving the client time and money.
