Bevel Gear



Professional IT Services & Technology Consulting

A bevel gear is a rotating machine element used to transfer mechanical power between two shafts that intersect at an angle. They are typically used in applications where high torque and speed are required, such as in automotive transmissions, machine tools, and construction equipment.

Bevel gears are cone-shaped gears with teeth that are arranged in a spiral pattern. The angle of the teeth is determined by the angle of the intersecting shafts. The most common type of bevel gear is the miter gear, which has a 90-degree angle between the shafts.

Bevel gears can be made from a variety of materials, including steel, stainless steel, and plastic. The material used will depend on the specific application and the required strength and durability.


How an Bevel Gear works?

A bevel gear is a gear in which the axis of the two shafts intersect and the tooth-bearing faces of the gears themselves are conically shaped. Bevel gears are most often mounted on shafts that are 90 degrees apart, but can be designed to work at other angles as well. The pitch surface of bevel gears is a cone, known as a pitch cone.

Bevel gears work by the same principle as other gears: the teeth of the two gears mesh together, and as one gear rotates, it drives the other gear. However, because the axes of the two shafts are not parallel, the teeth of the bevel gears are also angled. This allows the gears to transmit power between shafts that are at an angle.

The most common use for bevel gears is in differentials. A differential is a device in a car that allows the wheels on each side of the car to rotate at different speeds, which is necessary when the car is turning. The differential uses a pair of bevel gears to transmit power from the driveshaft to the axles.


How To Maintain The Bevel Gear?

Bevel gears are a critical component in many machines, and proper maintenance is essential to ensure their long life and performance. Here are some tips on how to maintain bevel gears:

Check the lubrication regularly. Bevel gears should be lubricated with a high-quality lubricant that is compatible with the materials of the gears. The lubricant helps to reduce friction and wear, and it also helps to keep the gears clean.

Inspect the gears for wear and damage. Bevel gears can wear over time, and they can also be damaged by dirt, debris, or misalignment. Inspect the gears regularly for signs of wear or damage, such as missing teeth, chipped teeth, or excessive wear on the gear faces.

Adjust the gears if necessary. If the gears are not properly aligned, they can wear prematurely. If you notice that the gears are not meshing properly, or if they are making noise, you may need to adjust them.

Replace the gears as needed. If the gears are worn beyond repair, they will need to be replaced. Replacing the gears can be a costly repair, but it is often necessary to prevent further damage to the machine.


Application of Bevel Gear

evel gears are used in the differential of automobiles to transfer power between the engine and the wheels. They are also used in the steering system to transfer power between the steering column and the wheels.


Bevel gears are used in the propulsion system of boats and ships to transfer power between the engine and the propeller. They are also used in steering systems to transfer power between the steering wheel and the rudder.


Bevel gears are used in aircraft engines to transfer power between the turbine and the propeller. They are also used in the landing gear system to transfer power between the hydraulic motor and the landing gear.


Bevel gears are used in a wide variety of industrial machinery, including milling machines, lathes, and power tools. They are used to transfer power between different components of the machine and to change the direction of rotation.

Bevel Gear Advantages

Compact size

Bevel gears are more compact than other gears that transmit power at an angle, such as worm gears. This makes them ideal for applications where space is limited.



Bevel gears are more efficient than other gears, meaning that they lose less power to friction. This is because the teeth of bevel gears are more closely spaced than the teeth of other types of gears.


Bevel gears are durable and can withstand a lot of wear and tear. This makes them ideal for applications where long-term performance is important.
