Single reduction worm gearing provides high ratio reduction with couple of moving parts in a close-coupled small drive. The right angle set up of driving-to-driven machine takes a minimum of space. Input and result shafts can be extended in either or both directions in horizontal or vertical arrangements adaptable to any mounting requirement. Efficient engine speeds are decreased to slow speed requirements of several industrial machines in a single reduction.
Ratios 5:1 to 70:1
Hollow & Solid Output Shafts
Vertical & Horizontal Mounting
Fan Cooled (Standard)
Motor Mounts (C-Face Adapters or Scoops)
Cast Iron or Metal Housings
The exclusive use of the involute Helicoid Thread form (with leaving side contact) on the worm and gear offers high efficiencies, and long service lifestyle. The hardened ground and polished alloy steel worm develops a soft, work hardened surface area on the bronze gear. Because of this worm gears use in and improve with extented service while various other gears are wearing out. Ever-Power offers a wide selection of model configurations, sizes, ratios, and add-ons from our standard products.
If the application involves serious shock loads or possible housing damage from external sources (as in steel mills or mobile tools applications) Ever-Power can offer fabricated steel housings with up to 48″ center distances. Fabricated housings provide optimum rigidity and strength which allows the tranny of higher horsepower levels than are possible with regular cast iron units. Extra heavy side plates connect the worm and gear shaft bearing facilitates, assuring proper meshing of the gear under all load conditions. In smaller 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 new project or a direct drop-in alternative to a competitor’s speed reducer. Fabricated steel reducers allow Ever-Power to match a competitor’s footprint, centerline, and shaft elevation allowing a direct drop-in substitute saving the customer time and money.
