Bevel GearsBevel gears are cut on conical blanks to be used to transmit motionbetween intersecting shafts. The simplest bevel gear type is the straighttooth bevel gear or straight bevel gear as can be seen from Figure 1. Asthe name implies, the teeth are cut straight, parallel to the cone axis, likespur gears.Fig.(1) Bevel gearsStraight Bevel GearsStraight bevel gears are the most economical of the various bevel geartypes. These gears are used primarily for relatively low-speedapplications with pitch-line velocities up to 1000 fpm, where smoothnessand quietness are not significant considerations. However, with the use ofa finishing operation (e.g., grinding), higher speeds have beensuccessfully handled by straight bevel gears.451

GeometryThe geometry of bevel gears is shown in Figure (2).The size and shape ofthe teeth is defined at the large end on the back cones. They are similar tothose of spur gear teeth. Standard straight bevel gears are cut by using a20 pressure angle and full-depth teeth, which increase the contact ratioand the strength of the pinion.The diametral pitch refers to the back- cone of the gear. Therefore, therelationships between the geometric quantities and the speed for bevelgears are given as follows:Fig.(2) Bevel gear .455
