What are the typical applications of forged bevel gears?

Forging bevel gears are a type of bevel gears that are manufactured through the forging process. Forging involves shaping metal through the application of localized compressive forces, typically using a die or hammer. In the case of bevel gears, the forging process is used to form the gear teeth and create the desired gear geometry.

Working principle of forged bevel gears

Forging bevel gears operate based on the fundamental principles of gear mechanisms. They consist of two intersecting shafts, each with a conically shaped gear (bevel gear) mounted on it. The teeth of the bevel gears are designed to have a specific tooth profile, such as straight, spiral, or hypoid, depending on the application requirements.

When the input shaft rotates, the engagement of the teeth of the bevel gears causes a transfer of rotational motion and torque to the output shaft. The contact between the mating teeth ensures power transmission while maintaining proper alignment and smooth operation.
