A Brief Guide To Bevel Gears

Gears and splined shafts are essential for the functioning of machines as they facilitate torque movement. There will be no force to make the machine do its job effectively without adequate torque movement. 

Since gears are essential for the functioning of complex industrial machinery, it is essential for gear manufacturers to use state-of-the-art techniques to guarantee perfection. True Gear & Spline Ltd. is one of the leading gear manufacturers in Canada. We manufacture helical, spur, ground, and bevel gears among others. 


In this blog, we expand on the bevel type of gear. 



The bevel type of gear is one of the most commonly used across industries owing to its many benefits. Here are some of the most significant benefits of bevel gear.

  • Facilitates impressive torque transfer
  • Occupies very little space 
  • Very low to no risk of slippage
  • Maintenance is relatively simple
  • Do not get easily damaged

There are many types of bevel gears widely used for diverse applications. Here are some of its most common types. 

Straight bevel: As the name suggests, these gears have straight teeth that are tapered toward the apex. The pitch surface of this gear is shaped like a cone.

Spiral bevel: Spiral gears have curved teeth allowing a smoother torque transferring process. 

Mitre gears: This is one of the unique gears because the number of teeth in both gears is exactly the same. The pitch angles of both the gears are also similar, offering maximum results.
Internal bevel: This gear gets its name because of the fact that the teeth are cut on the inside of the pitch cone. 

Hypoid bevel: The hyperbolic pitch surface gives this gear its name.
