Herringbone Gear

A herringbone gear, a specific kind of double helical equipment,[1] is a special type of equipment that is a laterally (not face to face) mixture of two helical gears of opposite hands. From the top, each helical groove of this gear appears like the letter V, and many together type a herringbone design (resembling the bones of a fish like a herring). Unlike helical gears, herringbone gears usually do not produce an additional axial load.
Like helical gears, they have the benefit of transferring power smoothly because more than two teeth will maintain mesh at at any time in time. Their advantage over the helical gears is certainly that the side-thrust of one half is balanced by that of the other half. This means that herringbone gears can be utilized in torque gearboxes without requiring a considerable thrust bearing. Due to this, herringbone gears were an important part of the launch of the steam turbine to marine propulsion.
Precision herringbone gears are more difficult to manufacture than comparative spur or helical gears and consequently are more costly. They are used in heavy machinery.
With an comprehensive capacity to produce herringbone (or double helical) gears in quantities from huge to small, HZPT Co. is well-prepared to meet up your production requirements, whatever the Herringbone Gear application form may be. Employed in ratios up to 1 1.5 diametrical pitch and modules up to 20, we can produce herringbone gears measuring up to 60″ in diameter and 18″ in face width. We can also produce small parts, and offer as-needed and just-in-period scheduling systems. Our die forming, heat treating, machining, and finishing services can be found to cover all steps of the gear production process, from start to finish.
We feature an considerable material selection, including plastics, nylon, phenolic, alloy steels, aluminum, brass, and bronze. Regular industries that we serve consist of pumps, pulp and paper, machinery, HVAC, and food digesting, as well as many others. From casting to forging and beyond, we use the ideal equipment forming method for your application and production order.
