Helical gears have become some of the commonest types of gears
used today. The design of helical gears' teeth is angular so that they look like a helix. This means that when the gears are running, the teeth mesh gradually starting from one point and advancing as they move on. At any point, multiple teeth will be engaged when the gear is running to increase the surface area under consideration. This design comes with several benefits.
• The load on each tooth at any moment is less for helix gears compared to spur gears
• The transmission of force sing the gear is smooth.
• The gear helps to reduce vibrations and wear.
• The helical gears are less noisy.
Helical gears can be designed using a wide range of materials including alloy steel, carbon steel, nodular graphite, stainless steel, cast iron and engineering plastic. Besides, the gear sizes can also vary. To see the full range of helical gears and select your preferred option, make sure to visit our page.
