Bevel Gears

Bevel Gears

A bevel gear is a toothed rotating machine element used to transfer mechanical energy or shaft power between shafts that are intersecting, either perpendicular or at an angle. This results in a change in the axis of rotation of the shaft power...

Helical Gears

Helical Gears

A gear is a particular kind of simple machine that controls the strength or direction of a force. A gear train is made up of multiple gears that are combined and connected by their teeth. These gear trains allow energy to move from...

Planetary Gears

Planetary Gear System

A planetary gear is an epicyclic gear that consists of a central gear, referred to as the sun gear and serves as the input gear, which has three or more gears that rotate around it that are referred to as planets. The planet gears engage with a ring gear that encircles the sun...

Plastic Gears

Plastic Gears

A plastic gear is a toothed wheel made up of engineering plastic materials that work with others to alter the relation between the speed of an engine and the speed of the driven parts. The engineering plastic materials used in manufacturing plastic gears can be...

Spur Gears

Spur Gears

A spur gear is a cylindrical toothed gear with teeth that are parallel to the shaft and is used to transfer mechanical motion and control speed, power, and torque between shafts. They are the most popular types of cylindrical gears and...

Worm Gears

Worm Gears

A worm gear is a staggered shaft gear that creates motion between shafts using threads that are cut into a cylindrical bar to provide speed reduction. The combination of a worm wheel and worm are the components of a worm gear...

Types of Gears

Types of Gears

A rotary circular machine with a tooth in its structure and is used to transfer torque and speed from one shaft to another is called a gear. Gears are also known as cogs and have cut teeth in the cogwheel or gear wheel...

Ball Screws

Ball Screw Animation

Ball screws are mechanical linear actuators that consist of a screw shaft and a nut that contain a ball that rolls between their matching helical grooves. The primary function of ball screws is to convert rotational motion to linear motion...

Lead Screw
