bevel gear

a gear having teeth cut into a conical surface known as the pitch zone. Two such gears mesh together to transmit power between two shafts at an angle to each other

bevel gear

[′bev·əl ‚gir]
(mechanical engineering)
One of a pair of gears used to connect two shafts whose axes intersect.

bevel gear

bevel gear
A pair of toothed wheels with teeth cut on a surface at an angle other than 90° to the axis of the shaft on which the wheels are mounted. Bevel gear permits one shaft to drive another shaft that is not parallel to it.

From the finite element results it was found that asymmetric bevel gears has lower values of contact stress with higher pressure angle on drive side than that of the coast side.
Production doesn't involve the same degree of intricate, multiaxis machine movements required to make geometrically complex bevel gears.
Subject to the procedure is the supply of spiral bevel gears for CTM and GTL in 6 (six) lots as follows:
The production stresses of producing these gears, balancing small to medium batch runs with the need to occasionally cut masters and prototypes, have been greatly relieved at Mercury Marine, Fond du Lac, WI, using a CNC gear cutter in combination with a closed-loop inspection system, to produce bevel gears and pinions, as well as master gears.
The Gleason Works is also an acknowledged leader in the theory of bevel gear design, and in the application, testing, and analysis of prototype and production bevel gears.
Gleason added, "Shipments of bevel gear equipment have also experienced significant growth in the past year primarily due to higher production volumes in the light and heavy truck industries, which are the principal users of bevel gears.
