Gears are used in various machines and systems. The gear has a range of evenly distributed teeth and can be manufactured according to design specifications. There are also spur gears as well as helical gears, and there is a distinction between involute and cycloid gears. We also manufacture internal gears according to DIN 5840 protocol. These are manufactured for the production of specialised gear hobbing machines. Additional specifications required include the module, gear count and tooth width, as well as information regarding gear tooth quality and further information on a contingency basis.
Gears can also be manufactured in inch modules for modern machining centres. Addendum flank reductions are also available according to customer requirements and operating conditions. Gears are used in transmission and facilitate power transmission, which is dependent on transmission ratio. We manufacture gears in addition to spur gears up to a diameter of 2400 mm and up to module 20. We also frequently deliver tooth racks compatible with spur gears. Rack and pinion gearing is often used as an alternative. The lantern pinion also commands an involute gearing, has a lantern pinion as a mating gear as opposed to a spur gear, gear, or tooth racks. These are bolts in one thread. This construction enables a large power transmission and is often more cost-effective to manufacture.
As a rule, the gears are manufactured with specialised tools known as gear milling machines. These determine the module and can produce any gear count for the respective gear. Straight-toothed spur gears can also be manufactured along these lines.
