Miter gears are a single type of bevel gears where in fact the two rotational axes intersect. When talking about narrow description of bevel gears with ability to increase or decrease speed, miter gears do not have that ability due to the pair’s same quantity of tooth. Their purpose is bound to the switch in transmission direction. Because they are a type of bevel gears, the essential characteristic of bevel gears exist such as presence of gear types of straight cut, spiral lower and types.

Also, because the shafts could be set to any angle, there are miter gears with non-90 degree (non-perpendicular) angle called angular miter gears. Ever-power is certainly capable of producing angular miter gears with shaft angles in the range of 45 to 120 degrees.

Because a couple of straight tooth miter gears gets the same amount of teeth, apart from small differences such as place screw holes and key methods, the same two gears may mate with each other. However, in the case of spiral miter gears, even though the number of teeth are the same, the twisting directions will vary. Therefore, the same gear can’t be meshed together, and it is required to pair the proper and remaining miter gear china handed pairs.

Bevel gears are classified in various types according to geometry:

Straight bevel gears have conical pitch surface and teeth are direct and tapering towards apex.
