Miter gears are 1 kind of bevel gears where the two rotational axes intersect. When talking about narrow description of bevel gears with capability to increase or lower speed, miter gears don’t have that ability because of the pair’s same quantity of tooth. Their purpose is limited to the transformation in miter gear china transmission direction. Because they are a kind of bevel gears, the essential characteristic of bevel gears can be found such as for example presence of gear forms of straight cut, spiral trim and types.

Also, because the shafts could be set to any kind of angle, generally there are miter gears with non-90 degree (non-perpendicular) angle called angular miter gears. Ever-power is definitely capable of making angular miter gears with shaft angles in the range of 45 to 120 degrees.

Because a pair of straight tooth miter gears has the same quantity of teeth, with the exception of small differences such as set screw holes and key ways, the same two gears may mate with each other. However, in the case of spiral miter gears, even though the number of teeth are the same, the twisting directions will vary. Therefore, the same equipment cannot be meshed together, in fact it is necessary to pair the right and remaining handed pairs.

Bevel gears are classified in different types according to geometry:

Straight bevel gears have conical pitch surface area and teeth are direct and tapering towards apex.
