Miter gears are a single kind of bevel gears where the two miter gear china rotational axes intersect. When talking about narrow description of bevel gears with ability to increase or decrease speed, miter gears don’t have that ability because of the pair’s same amount of teeth. Their purpose is bound to the switch in 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 kinds of straight cut, spiral cut and types.

Also, because the shafts could be set to any angle, right now there are miter gears with non-90 degree (non-perpendicular) angle called angular miter gears. Ever-power is usually capable of generating angular miter gears with shaft angles in the number of 45 to 120 degrees.

Because a couple of right tooth miter gears gets the same quantity of teeth, apart from minor differences such as collection screw holes and key ways, the same two gears can mate with each other. However, regarding spiral miter gears, even when the amount of teeth will be the same, the twisting directions will vary. Therefore, the same equipment can’t be meshed together, and it is necessary to pair the right and still left handed pairs.

Bevel gears are classified in different types according to geometry:

Direct bevel gears have conical pitch surface area and teeth are straight and tapering towards apex.
