Bevel Gears are used exclusively to transmit rotary motion between intersecting shafts. Through commonly seen in right angle drives, bevel gears can be cut to drive any angle. A cross section of the gear tooth reveals a profile similar to a spur gear. However, as the tooth is generated. the cross section section decreases the closer it gets to the center of the gear. Bevel gear sets will produce axial thrust loads which must be compensated for when selection bearings and designing mounting fixtures.
