One reduction worm gearing provides high ratio reduction with couple of moving parts in a close-coupled small drive. The right angle arrangement 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 arrangements adaptable to any mounting requirement. Efficient motor speeds are reduced to slow speed requirements of several industrial machines in one reduction.

The exclusive usage of the involute Helicoid Thread form (with leaving side contact) on the worm and gear provides for high efficiencies, and long service life. The hardened floor and polished alloy metal worm develops a simple, work hardened surface on the bronze gear. For this reason worm gears put on in and improve with prolonged service while 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 severe shock loads or possible housing damage from external sources (as in steel mills or mobile gear applications) Ever-Power can offer fabricated steel housings with up to a 48″ center distances. Fabricated housings provide maximum rigidity and strength which allows the transmitting of higher horsepower levels than are possible with standard cast iron systems. Extra heavy part plates connect the worm and equipment shaft bearing facilitates, assuring proper meshing of the apparatus under all load conditions. In smaller sizes, fabricated steel reducers are interchangeable with Ever-Power regular cast iron reducers.
Ever-Power can provide custom speed and reversed engineered reducers for the application, be it a new project or a primary drop-in alternative to a competitor’s velocity reducer. Fabricated metal reducers allow Ever-Power to match a competitor’s footprint, centerline, and shaft height allowing a primary drop-in replacement saving the customer time and money.
