A herringbone equipment, a specific type of double helical gear,[1] is a particular type of equipment that is a laterally (not in person) combination of two helical gears of opposite hands. From the top, each helical groove of the gear appears like the letter V, and several together type a herringbone design (resembling the bones of a fish such as a herring). Unlike helical gears, herringbone gears do not produce yet another axial load.
Like helical gears, they have the advantage of transferring power smoothly because more than two teeth will be in mesh at at any time in time. Their benefit over the helical gears is definitely that the side-thrust of 1 half is balanced by that of the other half. This implies that herringbone gears can be utilized in torque gearboxes without requiring a considerable thrust bearing. Due to this, herringbone gears were an important part of the launch of the steam turbine to marine propulsion.
Precision herringbone gears are more challenging to manufacture than comparative spur or helical gears and consequently are more expensive. They are found in heavy machinery.
With an extensive capacity to manufacture herringbone (or double helical) gears in quantities from huge to small, HZPT Co. is usually well-prepared to meet up your production needs, whatever the application may be. Employed in ratios up to at least one 1.5 diametrical pitch and modules up to 20, we are able to produce herringbone gears Herringbone Gear measuring up to 60″ in diameter and 18″ in face width. We can also produce little parts, and provide as-needed and just-in-time scheduling systems. Our die forming, temperature treating, machining, and finishing services are available to cover all steps of the gear production process, from start to finish.
We feature an intensive material selection, including plastics, nylon, phenolic, alloy steels, aluminum, brass, and bronze. Common industries that people serve include pumps, pulp and paper, machinery, HVAC, and food digesting, as well as many others. From casting to forging and beyond, we utilize the ideal gear forming method for your application and production order.
