miter gear

Miter gears are one kind of bevel gears where in fact the two rotational axes intersect. When talking about narrow description of bevel gears with capability to increase or lower speed, miter gears don’t have that ability because of the pair’s same number of tooth. Their purpose is bound to the change in transmission path. Because they are a kind of bevel gears, the essential characteristic of bevel gears exist such as for example presence of gear types of straight cut, spiral slice and types.

Also, since the shafts could be set to any kind of angle, there are miter gears with non-90 degree (miter gear china non-perpendicular) angle called angular miter gears. Ever-power is definitely capable of generating angular miter gears with shaft angles in the number of 45 to 120 degrees.

Because a pair of right tooth miter gears has the same amount of teeth, with the exception of small differences such as place screw holes and key ways, the same two gears can mate with one another. However, in the case of spiral miter gears, even when the amount of teeth will be the same, the twisting directions are different. Therefore, the same equipment cannot be meshed together, and it is required to pair the proper and still left handed pairs.

Bevel gears are classified in different types according to geometry:

Direct bevel gears have conical pitch surface and teeth are direct and tapering towards apex.
