(mechanical engineering)
Gear wheels running on parallel axes, with teeth twisted oblique to the gear axis.

Helical Gear


a cylindrical gear wheel with diagonal teeth that transmits rotation between crossed shafts in a screw gear transmission. Helical gears are made from materials that have a high resistance to coupling. Such materials as steel-hardened steel, cast iron-bronze, cast iron-plastic, steel-bronze, and steel-plastic are used for helical gears operating in pairs.
