Helical gears are considered a specialty family of engineered component. This type of product includes precision teeth that are produced with a very tight angle tolerance. What’s special about these teeth? The unique teeth slowly engage the operation; resulting in an extremely smooth and silent operational noise. The teeth are longer and stronger than other types of parts; resulting in a greater carry weight load. This value explains why this type of specialty OEM part is being selected for many electrical and hybrid energy applications, rather than other traditional styles of gearing families. Helicals are normally utilized for mating two parallel shafts or in crossed mesh applications to connect a pair of perpendicular shafts.
