Bevel gears are more efficient than worms and wheels for right angle drives, but they are typically used for lower ratio applications; if high ratios are required a spur gear reduction stage can be incorporated. Typically shaft angles of 90 degrees are used but other angles are possible – please contact us to discuss your application.
As with the worms and wheels, bevel gears are available in stainless steel and brass; the stainless steel option being higher precision than the brass option. It is important to note that with the bevel gears, where two gears are shown on the page the part number refers to the gear pair. Where only one gear is shown on the page the part number applies to individual gears only – for a pair, two gears must be ordered.
