Helical Gear Reducer

A helical gear reducer is a mechanical device that uses helical gears to decrease the speed and increase the torque of an input shaft. Helical gears are teeth that are angled at a diagonal, rather than straight across like spur gears. This angle creates a smoother, quieter, and more efficient mesh between the gears, making helical gear reducers ideal for a wide range of applications.

How do helical gear reducers work?

The input shaft of a helical gear reducer drives a pinion gear, which then meshes with a larger gear called the wheel. The angle of the helical teeth causes the gears to engage gradually, creating a smoother and more continuous power transfer than spur gears. This gradual engagement also reduces noise and vibration, making helical gear reducers ideal for applications where quiet operation is important.
