One reduction worm worm gear reduer 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 the least space. Input and output shafts can be prolonged in either or both directions in horizontal or vertical plans adaptable to any installation requirement. Efficient electric motor speeds are decreased to slow speed requirements of several industrial machines in a single reduction.

The exclusive usage of the involute Helicoid Thread form (with leaving side contact) on the worm and gear offers high efficiencies, and long service existence. The hardened surface and polished alloy metal worm develops a soft, work hardened surface on the bronze gear. For this reason worm gears wear in and improve with prolonged service while other gears are deteriorating. Ever-Power offers a wide collection of model configurations, sizes, ratios, and components from our standard products.
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 provide fabricated steel housings with up to a 48″ center distances. Fabricated housings provide maximum rigidity and strength that allows the transmission of higher horsepower amounts than are feasible with regular cast iron models. Extra heavy side plates connect the worm and gear shaft bearing supports, assuring appropriate meshing of the apparatus under all load circumstances. In smaller sized sizes, fabricated steel reducers are interchangeable with Ever-Power standard cast iron reducers.
Ever-Power can offer custom quickness and reversed engineered reducers for your application, be it a new project or a direct drop-in replacement for a competitor’s acceleration reducer. Fabricated metal reducers enable Ever-Power to complement a competitor’s footprint, centerline, and shaft height allowing a direct drop-in alternative saving the customer time and money.
