Turning the Corner in Asia

Looks like China and South Korea have turned the corner on NEW cases of the virus. That's what Social Distancing will do for us, too. Let's all get with the program.

Latest Worldwide Stats

This chart is the top 10, of 204, countries listed in the world by ranking of total infections. You can click this slide photo to be taken to the full list on the web. While it's not appealing to be #1 on this list, other columns show that our stats are certainly not as bad as some, when you consider our population compared to others.

Did You Hear? We're Open For Business!

Social Distancing

This is not some "pie in the sky" theory! This really works! Look at the results in China and South Korea. But EVERYONE has to participate. Beach goers bring the virus BACK to the folks that are fighting in the trenches and ruin everything we're trying to do. Get with the program, folks!

There's Hope!

We're in this together isn't just a slogan... it's a fact! We'll get through it but we've all got to do our part. Have Faith, and remember that "We're in this Together".

Bevel Gear Speed Reducers

Bevel Gear Reducer

Right Angle Gearboxes refer to such types as Worm, Bevel, Helical Bevel, Helical Worm, Planetary, Spiral-Bevel Gearboxes. The difference being how the gear sets are cut as well as combining different styles in different stages of a single gearbox.

Bevel gears are designed to change a shaft's rotation. Bevel gears translate one direction of force into another with the power of two axles meeting at an angle of 90 degrees. With the potential to change the direction of force and the operating angle of machinery, a bevel gear has many different applications.

Spiral Bevel gearboxes have a Bevel gear with Helical teeth. The main application of this is where the direction of drive from the drive shaft must be turned 90 degrees to drive the wheels. The helical design produces less vibration and noise than conventional straight-cut or spur-cut gear with straight teeth. These types of gearboxes are a popular choice when noise and backlash are a concern.

Bevel reducers are very efficient but have an effective speed reduction upper limit of 6:1. The type of application dictates which speed reducer design will best satisfy the requirements. These gear reducers are not the most common for "right-angle" applications, but give us a call to discuss the possibilities that they'll work on your project.
