One reduction worm gearing provides high ratio reduction with few shifting parts in a close-coupled small drive. The proper angle arrangement of driving-to-driven machine takes a minimum of space. Input and output shafts can be prolonged 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 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 life. The hardened ground and polished alloy steel worm develops a soft, work hardened surface area on the bronze gear. For this reason worm gears wear in and improve with extented service while additional gears are wearing out. Ever-Power offers a wide collection of model configurations, sizes, ratios, and accessories 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 equipment applications) Ever-Power can provide 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 possible with standard cast iron devices. Extra heavy side plates connect the worm and equipment shaft bearing supports, assuring proper meshing of the gear under all load conditions. In smaller sized sizes, fabricated metal reducers are interchangeable with Ever-Power regular cast iron reducers.
Ever-Power can provide custom rate and reversed engineered reducers for your application, be it a new project or a primary drop-in replacement for a competitor’s speed reducer. Fabricated steel reducers allow Ever-Power to complement a competitor’s footprint, centerline, and shaft elevation allowing a primary drop-in alternative saving the client time and money.
