Single reduction worm gearing offers 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 the least space. Input and output shafts can be prolonged in either or both directions in horizontal or vertical arrangements adaptable to any mounting requirement. Efficient motor speeds are decreased to gradual speed requirements of many industrial machines in one reduction.

Hollow & Solid Output Shafts
Vertical & Horizontal Mounting
Fan Cooled (Standard)
Motor Mounts (C-Encounter Adapters or Scoops)
Cast Iron or Steel Housings
The exclusive utilization of the involute Helicoid Thread form (with departing side contact) on the worm and gear offers high efficiencies, and lengthy service life. The hardened ground and polished alloy metal worm develops a soft, work hardened surface area on the bronze gear. Because of this worm gears put on in and improve with extented service while other gears are wearing out. Ever-Power offers a broad collection of model configurations, sizes, ratios, and components 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 devices applications) Ever-Power can provide fabricated steel housings with up to 48″ center distances. Fabricated housings provide maximum rigidity and strength which allows the transmitting of higher horsepower amounts than are feasible with standard cast iron models. Extra heavy side plates connect the worm and gear shaft bearing supports, assuring proper meshing of the apparatus under all load conditions. In smaller sized sizes, fabricated steel reducers are interchangeable with Ever-Power regular cast iron reducers.
Ever-Power can offer custom rate and reversed engineered reducers for your application, be it a new project or a direct drop-in replacement for a competitor’s speed reducer. Fabricated metal reducers allow Ever-Power to complement a competitor’s footprint, centerline, and shaft height allowing a primary drop-in replacement saving the customer time and money.
