Why choose helical or inline helical gearboxes?
You will find that in applications requiring higher torque, a helical gearbox provides a better solution. Helical gears operate more smoothly and quietly due to the way the teeth interact. The teeth on a helical gear cut at an angle to the face of the gear. When two of the teeth start to engage, the contact is gradual – starting at one end of the tooth and maintaining contact as the gear rotates into full connection. Helical gears are more commonly used in transmission, this is because they can generate large amounts of thrust and use bearings to help support the thrust load.
