Zerols are spiral bevel gears with a 0° central spiral angle, a combination of spiral- and straight-tooth bevel gears. 4. General. Advantages of Spiral, Hypoid and. Bevel gears transmit power between two intersecting shafts at any angle or They are classified as straight and spiral tooth bevel and hypoid gears in Fig Tooth shape for bevel gears is determined by scaling spur gear tooth shapes along the face width. The further from the intersection of the gear and pinion.
Straight Bevel Gears Bevel gears are cone shaped gears which transmit motion between two intersecting shafts. Straight bevel gears are the simplest of these bevel gears with their teeth being straight and pointing toward the apex of the cone.
They are easier than spiral bevel gears to make and do not produce inward thrust in the minus direction , simplifying bearing construction. On the other hand, they have the disadvantage of not being able to grind teeth after heat treatment. Straight bevel gears are divided into two groups: profile shifted Gleason type and non-profile shifted ones called standard type or Klingelnberg type.
Over all, the Gleason system is presently the most widely used. They are often not used when it is necessary to transmit large forces.
Generally they are utilized in machine tool equipment, printing machines and differentials. Spiral Bevel Gears Bevel gears are cone shaped gears which transmit motion between two intersecting shafts.
Spiral bevel gears are one type in which the teeth are curved spirally. Unlike straight bevel gears, these teeth contact each other gradually and smoothly from one end to the other. The meshing of teeth are, as in straight bevel gears, rolling contacts on the pitch cone surface.
With regard to design and gear cutting, just as in straight bevel gears, the Gleason type is most widely used in spiral bevel gears. However, in Germany, the Klingelnberg type with equal toe and heel tooth depth is still deeply rooted in use.
Spiral bevel gears have the advantage of being able to grind teeth after heat treatment, making it possible to produce high precision gears. Also, because the teeth contact ratio is higher than with straight bevel gears, noise and vibration are reduced and they are better suited for high speed applications.
The shafts are positioned at right angles from each other, and the gears have matching pitch surfaces and angles, with a conically shaped pitch surface. Furthermore, those "involute bevel gear sets" causes more noise. List of drawing symbols[ edit ] Teeth[ edit ] There are two issues regarding tooth shape.
One is the cross-sectional profile of the individual tooth. The other is the line or curve on which the tooth is set on the face of the gear: in other words the line or curve along which the cross-sectional profile is projected to form the actual three-dimensional shape of the tooth.
The primary effect of both the cross-sectional profile and the tooth line or curve is on the smoothness of operation of the gears. Some result in a smoother gear action than others.
The teeth on bevel gears can be straight, spiral or "zerol". Straight tooth lines[ edit ] In straight bevel gears the teeth are straight and parallel to the generators of the cone. This is the simplest form of bevel gear. Some result in a smoother gear action than others.
In straight bevel gears the teeth are straight and parallel to the generators of the cone. This is the simplest form of bevel gear. It resembles a spur gear, only conical rather than cylindrical. The gears in the floodgate picture are straight bevel gears. In straight bevel gear sets, when each tooth engages it impacts the corresponding tooth and simply curving the gear teeth can solve the problem.
Spiral bevel gears have their teeth formed along spiral lines. They are somewhat analogous to cylindrical type helical gears in that the teeth are angled; however, with spiral gears the teeth are also curved.
The advantage of the spiral tooth over the straight tooth is that they engage more gradually. The contact between the teeth starts at one end of the gear and then spreads across the whole tooth. This results in a less abrupt transfer of force when a new pair of teeth come into play.
With straight bevel gears, the abrupt tooth engagement causes noise, especially at high speeds, and impact stress on the teeth which makes them unable to take heavy loads at high speeds without breaking. Zerol bevel gears are an intermediate type between straight and spiral bevel gears. Their teeth are curved, but not angled.
Zerol bevel gears are designed with the intent of duplicating the characteristics of a straight bevel gear but they are produced using a spiral bevel cutting process.
The various materials used for gears include a wide variety of cast irons, non ferrous material and non — metallic materials. The selection of the gear material depends upon:. Two bevel gears in mesh is known as bevel gearing.
In bevel gearing, the pitch cone angles of the pinion and gear are to be determined from the shaft angle, i. Figure shows views of a bevel gearing. The bevel gear has many diverse applications such as locomotives, marine applications, automobiles, printing presses, cooling towers, power plants, steel plants, railway track inspection machines, etc.
