Chain & Drives provides a comprehensive range of standardised gearing components, designed for use for all types of industrial machinery.
Straight Bevel Gear
Straight bevel gears have tapered conical teeth which intersect the same tooth geometry. Bevel gears are used to transmit motion between shafts with intersecting center lines, the intersecting angle is normally 90 degrees -180 degrees. When the mating gears are equal in size and the shafts are positioned at 90d to each other, they are referred to as mitre gears. The teeth of bevel gears can also be cut in a curved manner to produce spiral bevel gears, which produce smoother and quieter operation than straight cut bevels.
Spiral Bevel Gear
Spiral bevel gears have a helical angle spiral teeth.
Screw Gear (Crossed Helical Gear)
Screw gears are helical gears of opposite helix angle will mesh when their axes are crossed.
