Bevel gears are mechanical devices used for transmitting mechanical power and motion. These gears are widely used for transmitting power and motion between non parallel axes and are designed to transmit motion between intersecting axes, generally at right angles. The teeth on bevel gear can be straight, spiral or hypoid. The gears are suitable when the direction of a shaft's rotation needs to be changed.
Materials Used:The materials are selected keeping in mind the design life, power transmission requirements, noise generation. Some of the important materials used are:
