Advantages and disadvantages of helical gears

helical gears

In mechanical transmission, helical gears are crucial components. It is necessary to recognize their significance and not discount their diminutive form. Which gear type has which benefits and drawbacks? Helical gear is one example.

Advantages of helical gears

1. Well-performing meshing

1.1 Since the entire product is the bite between the gears, which is a transition process, and the force acting on the gear will also gradually increase from small to large and then back to small, the bite performance of the helical gear in actual application is still quite ideal. Helical gear is typically used for some high-speed, heavy-duty operating conditions.

1.2 There is a lot of overlap.

The gear’s bearing capacity and service life will both rise with an increase in contact degree. The helical gear’s frequent meshing time and large contact area reduce stress, improve transmission stability, and boost economy. These factors are the primary determinants of the contact degree.

1.3 The building is quite small.

With its comparatively compact shape, the helical gear can achieve nearly perfect deceleration with a smaller gear mouse.

Disadvantages of helical gear

  • Lower efficiency compared to spur gears.
  • The spiral Angle also increases the axial thrust on the shaft.
