One reduction worm gearing provides high ratio reduction with couple of shifting 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 shafts can be extended in either or both directions in horizontal or vertical plans adaptable to any mounting requirement. Efficient engine speeds are worm gear reduer decreased to slower speed requirements of several industrial machines in one reduction.

The exclusive use of the involute Helicoid Thread form (with departing side contact) on the worm and gear provides for high efficiencies, and long service life. The hardened floor and polished alloy metal worm develops a simple, work hardened surface on the bronze gear. For this reason worm gears use in and improve with prolonged service while other gears are wearing out. Ever-Power offers a broad selection of model configurations, sizes, ratios, and add-ons from our standard products.
If the application involves severe shock loads or possible housing damage from external sources (as in steel mills or mobile products applications) Ever-Power can offer fabricated steel housings with up to a 48″ center distances. Fabricated housings provide maximum rigidity and strength which allows the transmitting of higher horsepower levels than are possible with regular cast iron models. Extra heavy aspect plates connect the worm and equipment shaft bearing facilitates, assuring correct meshing of the apparatus under all load circumstances. In smaller sized sizes, fabricated metal reducers are interchangeable with Ever-Power standard cast iron reducers.
Ever-Power can provide custom acceleration and reversed engineered reducers for your application, be it a fresh project or a primary drop-in alternative to a competitor’s quickness reducer. Fabricated metal reducers enable Ever-Power to complement a competitor’s footprint, centerline, and shaft elevation allowing a direct drop-in substitute saving the customer time and money.
