spiral gear

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

If you have a higher speed application that will require a whole lot of torque then spiral bevel gears certainly are a great option. The gears operate at 90° to each other and also have “spiral” shaped teeth which provides maximum tooth surface contact while rotating. With contact spread over the whole tooth the spiral bevel equipment could be run much quicker compared to the straight tooth bevel equipment and handle harder starts 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, however the equipment cannot turn the worm. The angle of the worm is usually shallow and because of this the apparatus is held set up due to 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 got an inherent basic safety mechanism built-in to its design since they cannot function in the invert direction.
