Single reduction worm gearing offers high ratio reduction with couple of moving parts in a close-coupled small drive. The right 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 arrangements adaptable to any installation requirement. Efficient engine speeds are decreased to slow speed requirements of many industrial machines in a single reduction.

The exclusive utilization of the involute Helicoid Thread form (with departing side contact) on the worm and gear offers high efficiencies, and lengthy service existence. The hardened ground and polished alloy steel worm develops a easy, work hardened surface on the bronze gear. For this reason worm gears put on in and improve with extented service while other gears are wearing out. Ever-Power offers a wide selection of model configurations, sizes, ratios, and add-ons from our standard product line.
If your 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 48″ center distances. Fabricated housings provide maximum rigidity and strength which allows the tranny of higher horsepower levels than are possible with standard cast iron products. Extra heavy side plates connect the worm and equipment shaft bearing facilitates, assuring appropriate meshing of the gear under all load circumstances. In smaller sizes, fabricated steel reducers are interchangeable with Ever-Power standard cast iron reducers.
Ever-Power can provide custom velocity and reversed engineered reducers for the application, be it a new project or a primary drop-in alternative to a competitor’s rate reducer. Fabricated steel reducers enable Ever-Power to match a competitor’s footprint, centerline, and shaft height allowing a direct drop-in substitute saving the customer time and money.
