The Spiroid Brand is flexible and includes two similar gearing solutions, Spiroid® Gears and Helicon® Gears.
These gear sets are comprised of a pinion and a face-gear operating in non-intersecting and non-parallel axes. By definition, the pinion has fewer teeth and is typically the driving member. This category of gearing is often referred to as “skew axis”.
Spiroid and Helicon gear systems are advantageous in that they broaden gearing design opportunities restricted by the physical limitations of conventional gearing. In essence, they represent another powerful design option for engineers looking to transmit higher torques, within smaller spaces, at 90-degree gearbox angles. Spiroid and Helicon: maximum power density in a right angle gearbox solution.
