A equipment is a rotating machine component that utilizes cut teeth, or cogs, to mesh with another precision worm gear toothed part-usually another equipment or a linear toothed part (called a equipment rack)-to transmit rotational movement and torque. By utilizing a mixture of precision gears with the correct ratio, the acceleration, torque, and even path of a power source can be changed. Two or more gears working jointly, called a gear teach or a transmission, will almost always create a change in torque. If one equipment is bigger than the various other, a mechanical benefit is created; the rotational acceleration and torque of the particular gears differs compared to their diameters.
HZPT is a leading producer of precision gears for all applications. We offer precision gears in regular and custom made inch-measure sizes and a number of configurations, including spur gears, anti-backlash gears, worm gears, helical gears, bevel gears, miter gears, pinion gears, and more.
We also provide a full line of precision gears in metric sizes.
