Single reduction worm gearing offers high ratio reduction with few shifting parts in a close-coupled small drive. The proper angle arrangement of driving-to-driven machine requires a minimum of space. Input and result shafts can be prolonged in either or both directions in horizontal or vertical arrangements adaptable to any mounting requirement. Efficient electric motor speeds are reduced to slower speed requirements of many industrial machines in one reduction.

The exclusive use of the involute Helicoid Thread form (with leaving side contact) on the worm and gear provides for high efficiencies, and lengthy service lifestyle. The hardened surface and polished alloy steel worm develops a soft, work hardened surface area on the bronze equipment. For this reason worm gears wear in and improve with extented service while additional gears are deteriorating. worm gear reduer Ever-Power offers a broad selection of model configurations, sizes, ratios, and components 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 provide fabricated steel housings with up to 48″ center distances. Fabricated housings provide maximum rigidity and strength that allows the tranny of higher horsepower levels than are feasible with regular cast iron models. Extra heavy aspect plates connect the worm and equipment shaft bearing supports, assuring appropriate meshing of the apparatus under all load conditions. In smaller sized sizes, fabricated metal 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 fresh project or a primary drop-in replacement for a competitor’s rate reducer. Fabricated metal 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.
