spiral gear

Spiral bevel gears are typically created from hardened steel. One’s teeth of these gears are often ground for a far more precise finish allowing for little sound at high speeds. You can specify left hand or right hand based on the direction you need to run the gears

If you have a higher speed application that requires a whole lot of torque then spiral bevel gears certainly are a great choice. The gears operate at 90° to one spiral gear china another and have “spiral” shaped tooth which provides maximum tooth surface get in touch with while rotating. With contact spread over the complete tooth the spiral bevel equipment can be run much faster than the straight tooth bevel equipment and handle harder begins and stops.

We make spiral bevel gears only for industrial applications.

Worm gears are found in large gear reductions. Gear ratio ranges of 5:1 to 300:1 are regular. The setup was created so that the worm can turn the gear, but the equipment cannot switch the worm. The position of the worm can be shallow and because of this the gear is held in place due to the friction between the two. The equipment is found in applications such as for example conveyor systems where the locking feature can become a brake or a crisis stop.

The model cross-section shows an average placement and usage of a worm gear. Worm gears possess an inherent security mechanism built-in to its design since they cannot function in the invert direction.
