A gear is a rotating machine component that utilizes cut tooth, or cogs, to mesh with another toothed part-usually another precision worm gear equipment or a linear toothed part (called a equipment rack)-to transmit rotational movement and torque. By using a combination of precision gears with the correct ratio, the quickness, torque, and even direction of a power supply can be changed. Several gears working together, called a gear teach or a transmitting, will almost always create a transformation in torque. If one gear is larger than the other, a mechanical benefit is produced; the rotational acceleration and torque of the particular gears differs in proportion to their diameters.
HZPT is a leading producer of precision gears for all applications. We provide precision gears in standard and custom inch-measure sizes and a number of configurations, including spur gears, anti-backlash gears, worm gears, helical gears, bevel gears, miter gears, pinion gears, and more.
We also provide a full line of precision gears in metric sizes.
