A gear is a rotating machine component that utilizes cut tooth, or cogs, to mesh with another toothed part-usually another gear or a linear toothed part (called a gear rack)-to transmit rotational motion and torque. By using a combination of precision gears with the right ratio, the velocity, torque, and even direction of a power supply can be changed. Several gears working collectively, called a gear teach or a transmitting, will almost always create a transformation in torque. If one gear is bigger than the other, a mechanical advantage is produced; the rotational speed and torque of the respective gears differs in proportion to their diameters.
HZPT is a leading producer of precision gears for all applications. We provide precision gears in regular and custom made inch-measure sizes and a number of configurations, including spur gears, anti-backlash gears, worm gears, helical gears, bevel gears, miter gears, precision worm gear pinion gears, and more.
We also provide a full line of precision gears in metric sizes.
