Spiral bevel gears are typically made from hardened steel. The teeth of these gears are often ground for a more precise finish enabling little sound at high speeds. You can specify left hands or right hand depending on the direction you need to run the gears
If you have a higher speed application that requires a lot of torque then spiral bevel gears are a great option. The gears operate at 90° to each other and also have “spiral” shaped the teeth which gives maximum tooth surface contact while rotating. With contact spread over the whole tooth the spiral bevel equipment could be run much quicker than the spiral gear china straight tooth bevel gear and handle harder begins and stops.
We make spiral bevel gears limited to industrial applications.
Worm gears are used in large gear reductions. Gear ratio ranges of 5:1 to 300:1 are standard. The setup was created to ensure that the worm can change the gear, but the gear cannot switch the worm. The position of the worm is usually shallow and because of this the gear is held set up because of the friction between the two. The equipment is situated in applications such as for example conveyor systems where the locking feature can act as a brake or an emergency stop.
The model cross-section shows a typical placement and usage of a worm gear. Worm gears have an inherent basic safety mechanism built-in to its style since they cannot function in the invert direction.
