Spiral bevel gears are usually made from hardened steel. The teeth of these gears are usually ground for a far more precise finish enabling little sound at high speeds. You can specify left hands or right hand based on the direction you need to run the gears

If you have a higher speed application that requires a whole lot of torque after that spiral bevel gears are a great option. The gears run at 90° to one another and also have “spiral” shaped the teeth which gives maximum tooth surface get in touch with while rotating. With contact spread over the complete tooth the spiral bevel gear could be run much faster than the straight tooth bevel equipment and handle harder starts and stops.

We make spiral bevel gears only for industrial applications.

Worm gears are found in large gear reductions. Gear ratio ranges of 5:1 to 300:1 are regular. The setup is designed to ensure that the worm can turn the gear, but the equipment cannot turn the worm. The position of the worm is usually shallow and as a result the apparatus is held set up due to the friction between your two. The gear is found 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 use of a worm gear. Worm gears possess an inherent basic safety mechanism built-in to its design given that they cannot function in the reverse direction.
