Custom Gearing & Cluster Assemblies
Spur gears are increasingly in demand, not only in the industrial sector but also in the food, and healthcare space, among many other major industrial sectors. In fact, this type of gearing is actually the most used form in power delivery and motion transfer. Now that we understand the basics, how do you get your hands on quality custom gearing? Or better yet, how can you spot the ideal manufacturer for your needs? Well, let’s find out.
What Are They?
This section comes as a no-brainer to most people. But before we get down to the nitty-gritty details, it is best to get this out of the way. So, without any further ado, in simple terms, this type of gear that features parallel teeth positioned all around the cylinder body. These parts are widely accepted as the most efficient type of gearing solution, when the application of transmitting power and uniform rotary motion from one parallel shaft to another is required. Determined by the center distance, this type of force creates a steady functioning speed drive. Their design allows the transfer of mechanical motion, for instance, control of power, speed, and torque. And yes, these gears are in machines such as washing machines.
As a custom spur gear supplier, we have over two decades of experience with gear-train or assembly applications – where multiple pieces are required to have the same pressure angle and diameter pitch. They are available in plastic, non-metallic, brass, steel and cast iron.
Internal Spur Gear Suppliers
These internal gears have a cylindrical pitch surface and teeth which are parallel to the axis. However, the internal teeth are formed on the inner surface of a cylinder. Also, the precision engineered mating component will be an external mesh.
Cluster Gearing Assemblies
Cluster gear types are produced through a precision array or assembly of components, with contrasting bores, on a shaft or blank. Normally, these particular gear assemblies are used in OEM Automotive, Off-highway and Marine industry applications.
Uses and Applications
As you can imagine, the application of these parts are endless. Because of their design, these components are used in a wide range of speed ration variety of mechanical applications, for instance, electric screwdrivers, clocks, watering systems, and other machines. Their simplicity makes them the perfect items to install even when the space is limited or restricted.
More importantly, unlike other motion and power-transmitting components, this gear is unlikely to slip during operation. And when necessary for the equipment, more than one piece can be used in a train, essentially providing a higher gear reduction.
Above all, the simplicity of their design makes them less expensive to customize and manufacture, even when the dimensions are precise. These components work best in applications that require torque increment and speed reduction, such as crushing equipment. Unfortunately, they carry one significant downside.
This gearing tends to be quite loud especially compared to other gears. Each time the a tooth comes into contact with another in an assembly, the teeth collide. This impact is what makes the loud noise during motion. And with that in mind, these parts are helpful in sectors where noise is not a significant factor.
