Single reduction worm gearing offers high ratio reduction with few shifting parts in a close-coupled small 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 plans adaptable to any mounting requirement. Efficient motor speeds are reduced to slower 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-Encounter Adapters or Scoops)
Cast Iron or Metal Housings
The exclusive utilization of the involute Helicoid Thread form (with leaving side contact) on the worm and gear provides for high efficiencies, and long service existence. The hardened ground and polished alloy metal worm develops a soft, work hardened surface area on the bronze equipment. Because of this worm gears put on in and improve with prolonged service while various other gears are deteriorating. Ever-Power offers a broad collection of model configurations, sizes, ratios, and components from our standard products.
If the application involves serious shock loads or feasible housing damage from external sources (as in steel mills or mobile apparatus applications) Ever-Power can offer fabricated steel housings with up to a 48″ center distances. Fabricated housings provide optimum rigidity and strength that allows the tranny of higher horsepower amounts than are feasible with regular cast iron systems. Extra heavy side plates connect the worm and equipment shaft bearing facilitates, assuring appropriate meshing of the gear under all load circumstances. In smaller sizes, fabricated steel reducers are interchangeable with Ever-Power regular cast iron reducers.
Ever-Power can offer custom acceleration and reversed engineered reducers for the application, be it a new project or a primary drop-in alternative to a competitor’s rate reducer. Fabricated steel reducers enable Ever-Power to match a competitor’s footprint, centerline, and shaft height allowing a primary drop-in replacement saving the client time and money.
