spiral gear

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

If you have a high speed application that will require a lot of torque then spiral bevel gears certainly are a great choice. The gears operate at 90° to each other and have “spiral” shaped teeth which provides maximum tooth surface spiral gear china contact while rotating. With contact spread over the complete tooth the spiral bevel gear could be run much faster compared to the straight tooth bevel gear and handle harder starts and stops.

We make spiral bevel gears only for industrial applications.

Worm gears are used in large gear reductions. Gear ratio ranges of 5:1 to 300:1 are usual. The setup is designed to ensure that the worm can turn the gear, however the gear cannot turn the worm. The angle of the worm is shallow and consequently the gear is held set up due to the friction between the two. The gear is situated in applications such as conveyor systems in which the locking feature can act as a brake or a crisis stop.

The model cross-section shows a typical placement and utilization of a worm gear. Worm gears have an inherent basic safety mechanism built-in to its design since they cannot function in the reverse direction.
