miter gear

Miter gears are one kind of bevel gears where the two rotational axes intersect. When speaking of narrow definition of bevel gears with ability to miter gear china increase or decrease speed, miter gears do not have that ability due to the pair’s same quantity of teeth. Their purpose is limited to the transformation in transmission path. Because they are a type of bevel gears, the essential characteristic of bevel gears can be found such as presence of gear kinds of straight cut, spiral cut and types.

Also, since the shafts can be set to any angle, right now there are miter gears with non-90 degree (non-perpendicular) angle called angular miter gears. Ever-power is capable of creating angular miter gears with shaft angles in the range of 45 to 120 degrees.

Because a pair of right tooth miter gears has the same number of teeth, apart from minor differences such as place screw holes and key ways, the same two gears may mate with each other. However, regarding spiral miter gears, even though the amount of teeth are the same, the twisting directions will vary. Therefore, the same gear can’t be meshed together, and it is necessary to pair the right and remaining handed pairs.

Bevel gears are classified in various types according to geometry:

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