Single reduction worm gearing provides high ratio reduction with few moving parts in a close-coupled compact drive. The proper angle arrangement of driving-to-driven machine takes a minimum of space. Input and result shafts can be prolonged in either or both directions in horizontal or vertical plans adaptable to any installation requirement. Efficient motor speeds are decreased to slower speed requirements of several industrial machines in a single reduction.

The exclusive usage of the involute Helicoid Thread form (with departing side contact) on the worm and gear provides for high efficiencies, and lengthy service lifestyle. The hardened ground and polished alloy metal worm develops a soft, work hardened surface on the bronze gear. For this reason worm gears put on in and improve with prolonged service while additional gears are wearing out. Ever-Power offers a broad selection of model configurations, sizes, ratios, and accessories 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 devices. Extra heavy part plates connect the worm and gear shaft bearing facilitates, assuring appropriate meshing of the apparatus under all load circumstances. In smaller sized sizes, fabricated steel reducers are interchangeable with Ever-Power regular cast iron reducers.
Ever-Power can provide custom acceleration and reversed engineered reducers for your application, be it a new project or a direct drop-in alternative to a competitor’s rate reducer. Fabricated metal reducers enable Ever-Power to complement a competitor’s footprint, centerline, and shaft height allowing a primary drop-in alternative saving the customer time and money.
