Solitary reduction worm gearing offers high ratio reduction with few moving parts in a close-coupled compact drive. The right angle set up of driving-to-driven machine requires a minimum of space. Input and result worm gear reduer shafts can be prolonged in either or both directions in horizontal or vertical plans adaptable to any mounting requirement. Efficient engine speeds are reduced to slower speed requirements of several industrial machines in one reduction.

The exclusive utilization 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 easy, 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 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 a 48″ center distances. Fabricated housings provide maximum rigidity and strength that allows the transmission of higher horsepower levels than are possible with standard cast iron models. Extra heavy side plates connect the worm and equipment shaft bearing supports, assuring correct meshing of the apparatus under all load conditions. In smaller sizes, fabricated metal reducers are interchangeable with Ever-Power standard cast iron reducers.
Ever-Power can provide custom velocity and reversed engineered reducers for your application, be it a new project or a primary drop-in replacement for a competitor’s swiftness reducer. Fabricated metal reducers allow Ever-Power to match a competitor’s footprint, centerline, and shaft elevation allowing a direct drop-in replacement saving the customer time and money.
