Screw Gears Used for Non-Intersecting Shafts
Also, if the same material is used in screw gears, it could lead to friction and galling. Therefore, KHK recommends the use of different materials in a pair. Besides, unlike bevel gears, there are no restrictions on the numbers of teeth combinations and the speed transmission ratio becomes the number of teeth of the driving gear divided by the number of teeth of the driven gear. Please consult the “Gear Applications” pages for the actual working of screw gears.
