Helical Gears

Helical gears have teeth that are set on an angle to the gear axis. The features and benefits are similar to spur gears but can be a better option when higher velocities are needed. Compared to spur gears, helical gears have greater tooth strength and a higher load carrying capacity. They also have a smoother and quieter operation due to their higher face contact ratio.

Gear Motions is well equipped to meet all of your helical gear manufacturing needs, whether cut or precision ground. Our capabilities include a wide range of sizes of custom-made helical gears with quality levels up to AGMA Q15. Whether you need metric, diametral or other types of gears and splines, the team at Gear Motions has the knowledge and experience to produce the high-quality gearing you need. Our commitment to quality through precision includes a Quality Management System certification to ISO 9001:2015.

Ground Helical Gears

Using our extensive experience and state-of-the-art equipment, we can manufacture the highest quality ground helical gears anywhere. Our modern fleet of gear grinding machines are equipped with robotic automation and work to meet high volume demands. For smaller runs, our manually loaded profile gear grinders are manned by our highly trained staff, providing consistency across the board. We have a dedicated design and development team, and our gears are produced in lean “Just in Time” cells.
