Miter gears are one type of bevel gears where the two rotational axes intersect. When speaking of narrow definition of bevel gears with ability to increase or decrease speed, miter gears do not have that ability due to the pair’s same number of teeth. Their purpose is limited to the change in transmission direction. Because they are a type of bevel gears, the basic characteristic of bevel gears exist such as presence of gear forms of straight cut, spiral cut and zerol types.

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