KHK USA Inc., distributor of the market leading KHK® brand of metric gears, announces its extensive line of bevel gears, manufactured to the highest quality standards by Kohara Gear Industry Co., of Japan. KHK’s large selection of bevel gears are suitable for a very wide range of applications, and include Straight Bevel Gears and Spiral Bevel Gears, as well as Hypoid Gears that have the characteristics of both spiral bevel gears with high reduction ratios.
Bevel gears are two intersecting cone shaped gears that are used to transmit rotational motion between them. KHK bevel gears are offered in a broad variety of modules, numbers of teeth, materials and styles, with gear ratios of 1.5 through 5. Although the angle of intersection may be any angle, all of KHK’s stock bevel gears intersect at a right angle.
KHK Straight Bevel Gears come in a variety of materials, including Injection Molded Bevel Gears that are suitable for office machines, Plastic Bevel Gears that are lightweight and do not require lubricant, and Stainless Steel Bevel Gears that are ideal for food machinery.
Spiral Bevel Gears have a curved tooth form which provides larger tooth contact surfaces, resulting in smoother, less noisy rotation. They are suitable for high-speed, heavy load operations. KHK’s broad portfolio ranges from commercial quality Spiral Bevels to Ground Alloy Steel Spiral Bevel Gears for applications where exceptionally high speed, low noise, and low vibration is required.
KHK Hypoid Gears, are a special type of spiral bevel gears which offer high speed reduction ratio, high efficiency, high rigidity and compact gear assembly.
