Mitre & Bevel Gears

Mitre and bevel gears are gear types that operate at a right angle to transfer motion between perpendicular shafts.
How do mitre and bevel gears work?
Bevel gears are designed to transmit rotary motion between intersecting shafts. Their tooth-bearing faces are conical, and although they’re usually mounted on shafts that are 90° apart, they can be designed for almost any angle. Mitre gears are bevel gears with an equal number of teeth, used for transmitting rotational motion with a 1:1 ratio at a 90° angle.
What are mitre and bevel gears used for?
Mitre and Bevel gears have a wide range of applications, including in material handling and pumps, and in the automotive and commercial industries, among others. They are also found in numerous types of mechanical equipment, including: •Food packaging equipment •Welding positioning equipment •Machine tools, including mills and lathes •Compression systems for oil and gas markets •Food-canning equipment •Fluid control valves •Lawn and garden equipment •Track inspection machines •Cooling towers •Printing presses
