Spiral Bevel Gear Drives: Free Buyers' Advice

Press Release
Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Mitrapak has published a free downloadable white paper: '5 Things to Consider Before Buying Spiral Bevel Gear Drives'.

Spiral bevel gear drives — a refined type of right-angle drive — function as important motion control components of equipment for packaging, food processing, textile, military, agricultural, and a wide variety of material handling and marine applications. These power transmission products play a critical role where motive force within a machine must be transferred "around a corner."

Often mischaracterized as simple commodities, such drives are actually complex mechanisms whose specification can demand close collaboration between engineers and distributors or suppliers, notes George Abbott , MITRPAK product manager and author of the new white paper. "It's critical that engineers understand the vendor and its product's specific capabilities prior to undertaking the ordering process — as both can greatly affect performance."

The new white paper guides engineers through the specification process, discussing variables such as lead times, costs, reliability, ordering ease, applications expertise, and customized solutions. The paper details five key issues for engineers to explore in determining whether a prospective vendor's spiral bevel gear drive is the optimum choice to meet the unique needs of their application:
    1.    Suitability for use in challenging environments
    2.    Appropriateness for field maintenance, repair, and rebuild
    3.    Minimization of noise and backlash
    4.    Availability in sizes and ratings for specific applications
    5.    Customization options for specific applications

"Only with careful upfront examination of product specifications and vendor options, engineers can avoid potential design, functionality, and costs issues and obtain the right spiral bevel gear drive to deliver optimum performance over a long service lifetime," Abbott notes.
