Bevel Gears

Drawing And Sample Custom Special Straight Bevel Gears

Bevel Gears are gears which instead of being a cylinder with straight teeth (like a spur gear), it is formed into a cone (essentially a tapered spur gear). The teeth at the bottom of the bevel (the large end) taper down to smaller gear teeth at the top of the bevel gear (small end). Bevel gears usually run on shafts that are 90 degrees to one another whose axis intersect at some point above the gear teeth.
Bevel gears are typically constructed from metal or plastic. Bevel gears can be made of various types of materials with differing properties, such as aluminum, bronze, cast iron, brass, steel, hardened steel, and stainless steel. Plastic materials used to make bevel gears include Delrin, nylon, and polycarbonate.The bevel gear has many different applications such as marine applications, locomotives, printing presses, automobiles, cooling towers, steel plants, power plants, railway track inspection machines, etc.

This is the simplest form of bevel gear. The teeth are in a straight line that intersects at the axis of the gear when extended. The teeth are tapered in thickness making the outer or heel part of the tooth larger than the inner part or toe. Straight bevel gears have instantaneous lines of contact, permitting more tolerance in mounting. A downside to using this type is the vibration and noise. This limits straight bevel gears to low-speed and static loading applications. A common application of straight bevel gears is differential systems in automotive vehicles.

Straight bevel gears are the most common and also the simplest type of bevel gear. True to their name, they have straight teeth and resemble a spur gear, except that they are conical rather than cylindrical. They also share many properties of spur gears due to the similar tooth shape and the way their teeth engage.


Straight bevel gears have many different uses across industries such as industrial and commercial, material handling, automotive, pumps, and many other industries.  With over a century of gear manufacturing experience, We have worked with customers to produce bevel gears for a wide range of applications. Some of these include:

  • Food canning equipment
  • Food packaging equipment
  • Welding positioning equipment
  • Lawn and garden equipment
  • Machine tools, including lathes and mills
  • Compression systems for the oil and gas markets
  • Fluid control valves
