Single reduction worm gearing offers high ratio reduction with couple of moving parts in a close-coupled compact drive. The proper angle arrangement of driving-to-driven machine takes a the least space. Input and result shafts can be prolonged in either or both directions in horizontal or vertical arrangements adaptable to any mounting requirement. Efficient engine speeds are decreased to gradual speed requirements of many industrial machines in a single reduction.

The exclusive utilization of the involute Helicoid Thread form (with leaving side contact) on the worm and gear offers high efficiencies, and lengthy service lifestyle. The hardened floor and polished alloy steel worm develops a easy, work hardened surface on the bronze gear. For this reason worm gears use in and improve with prolonged service while various other gears are wearing out. Ever-Power offers a broad selection of model configurations, sizes, ratios, and accessories 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 equipment applications) Ever-Power can offer fabricated steel housings with up to a 48″ center distances. Fabricated housings provide optimum rigidity and strength which allows the transmitting of higher horsepower levels than are possible with standard cast iron units. Extra heavy part plates connect the worm and gear shaft bearing facilitates, assuring appropriate meshing of the gear under all load conditions. In smaller sized sizes, fabricated steel reducers are interchangeable with Ever-Power standard cast iron reducers.
Ever-Power can provide custom rate and reversed engineered reducers for your application, be it a fresh project or a direct drop-in alternative to a competitor’s acceleration worm gear reduer reducer. Fabricated steel reducers allow Ever-Power to complement a competitor’s footprint, centerline, and shaft height allowing a direct drop-in alternative saving the client time and money.
