A herringbone gear, a specific type of double helical gear, is a side to side (not face to face) combination of two helical gears of opposite hands. From the top, the helical grooves of this gear look like the letter V., Unlike helical gears. They do not produce an additional axial load.
HZPT offers herringbone gears or helical gears that come with more robust and longer teeth than most of the other types and classes of gears. As they provide a greater area for surface contact on the teeth, the herringbone gears can be used for effectively carrying large and heavy loads. Our expert’s design and manufacture helical gears are relatively quiet during operation and lead to fewer vibrations. The gears are much similar to the spur gears, apart from the fact that the teeth of the helical gears are cut at an angle to the axis. Our herringbone gears are available in both left and right-hand configurations.
The standard versions of our herringbone gears are available with diameters up to 60 inches. The diametrical pitch can vary between 16 DP to 2 DP. The face width of these units extends up to 18 inches. The gears may have hex and flat shaft features. We also offer fully serviced custom-designed herringbone gears that offer more enhanced performance for various operations. Based on the specific measurements you are looking for, our customers can create excellent specimens of herringbone gears that can be good for your business.
We use high-grade handpicked materials to ensure that every herringbone gears we design and manufacture are absolutely state of the art. Some of the fabrics we use include alloy steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass, carbon steel, gray cast iron, bronze, and ductile iron. We also incorporate several non-metals in the production of herringbone gears. These non-metals include plastic, nylon, acetal, phenolic, Delrin, polycarbonate, and polyester. These materials are procured from the finest resources and do not include any impurities. This makes the herringbone gears highly reliable and efficient for many applications. We also expose all herringbone gears to diverse processes such as die forming, heat-treating, finishing, and machining, making them excellent and highly functional.
Here are the typical applications for which our herringbone gears can be used:
- Automotive industry
- Construction purposes
- Commercial uses
- Marine industry
- Agricultural and farming
- Other industries
Once you get in touch with us to provide you with custom herringbone gears, we can also create prototypes for you that you can choose for high or low-volume productions. Our products also meet leading global standards such as ANSI, TS, ASME, and AWS.
