What is a Bevel Gear?
Bevel gears are part of the category of gears which connect two rotating shafts with intersecting axes.
What does a Bevel Gear look like?
Bevel Gears come in pairs, with both gears having differing numbers of teeth. They can have straight or spiral (curved oblique) teeth, but always feature a conical shaped, pitched surface. Bevel Gears can have outward (external) or inward (internal) facing teeth. As Bevel Gear pairs are never identical they are supplied in matched left and right-handed pairs.
How does a Bevel Gear work?
Bevel Gears are paired together and used to change the direction of power transmission as well as the speed. The reduction ratio varies between gear pairs but is greater for Spiral Bevel Gears.
What does a Bevel Gear do?
Bevel Gears are used to change the direction and speed of shaft rotation.
Where is a Bevel Gear used?
Bevel Gears are used in a wide range of applications such as differential gear units, marine, auto, power plants, printing presses and machine tools.
Good to know about Bevel Gears?
Spiral Bevel Gears can achieve higher reduction ratios than straight Bevel Gears. They are also more durable as they enable a smooth and more gradual teeth meshing, which also makes them a good choice for quieter operation. They are ideal for heavier loads and higher speeds.
