Solitary reduction worm gearing offers high ratio reduction with few moving parts in a close-coupled small drive. The right angle arrangement of driving-to-driven machine requires a the least space. Input and output shafts can be prolonged in either or both directions in horizontal or vertical plans adaptable to any mounting requirement. Efficient electric motor speeds are reduced to gradual speed requirements of many industrial worm gear reduer 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 lengthy service existence. The hardened surface and polished alloy metal worm develops a soft, work hardened surface area on the bronze gear. For this reason worm gears use in and improve with extented service while various other gears are wearing out. Ever-Power offers a wide collection of model configurations, sizes, ratios, and components from our standard product line.
If the application involves serious shock loads or possible housing damage from external sources (as in steel mills or mobile products applications) Ever-Power can offer fabricated steel housings with up to 48″ center distances. Fabricated housings provide optimum rigidity and strength which allows the transmission of higher horsepower amounts than are feasible with standard cast iron products. Extra heavy aspect plates connect the worm and gear shaft bearing facilitates, assuring appropriate meshing of the apparatus under all load circumstances. In smaller sized sizes, fabricated metal reducers are interchangeable with Ever-Power standard cast iron reducers.
Ever-Power can offer custom rate and reversed engineered reducers for the application, be it a fresh project or a direct drop-in alternative to a competitor’s rate reducer. Fabricated metal reducers enable Ever-Power to complement a competitor’s footprint, centerline, and shaft elevation allowing a direct drop-in replacement saving the customer time and money.
