One reduction worm gearing provides high ratio reduction with few moving parts in a close-coupled compact drive. The proper angle set up of driving-to-driven machine takes a the least space. Input and result shafts can be extended in either or both directions in horizontal or vertical plans adaptable to any installation requirement. Efficient motor speeds are decreased to slower speed requirements of several industrial machines in a single reduction.

The exclusive use of the involute Helicoid Thread form (with departing side contact) on the worm and gear provides for high efficiencies, and long service lifestyle. The hardened floor and polished alloy metal worm develops a simple, work hardened surface area on the bronze equipment. For this reason worm gears use in and improve with extented service while additional gears are deteriorating. Ever-Power offers a wide selection of model configurations, sizes, ratios, and add-ons from our standard products.
If the application involves serious shock loads or feasible 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 worm gear reduer rigidity and strength that allows the transmission of higher horsepower levels than are possible with regular cast iron models. Extra heavy aspect plates connect the worm and gear shaft bearing facilitates, assuring correct meshing of the apparatus under all load circumstances. In smaller sized sizes, fabricated metal reducers are interchangeable with Ever-Power regular cast iron reducers.
Ever-Power can provide custom quickness and reversed engineered reducers for your application, be it a fresh project or a direct drop-in alternative to a competitor’s quickness reducer. Fabricated metal reducers enable Ever-Power to complement a competitor’s footprint, centerline, and shaft elevation allowing a primary drop-in alternative saving the customer time and money.
