Bevel gear

Bevel gears are gears where the axes of the two shafts intersect and the tooth-bearing faces of the gears themselves are conically shaped. Bevel gears are most often mounted on shafts that are 90 degrees apart, but can be designed to work at other angles as well. The pitch surface of bevel gears is a cone.

Two important concepts in gearing are pitch surface and pitch angle. The pitch surface of a gear is the imaginary toothless surface that you would have by averaging out the peaks and valleys of the individual teeth. The pitch surface of an ordinary gear is the shape of a cylinder. The pitch angle of a gear is the angle between the face of the pitch surface and the axis.

The most familiar kinds of bevel gears have pitch angles of less than 90 degrees and therefore are cone-shaped. This type of bevel gear is called external because the gear teeth point outward. The pitch surfaces of meshed external bevel gears are coaxial with the gear shafts; the apexes of the two surfaces are at the point of intersection of the shaft axes.

Bevel gears that have pitch angles of greater than ninety degrees have teeth that point inward and are called internal bevel gears.

Bevel gears that have pitch angles of exactly 90 degrees have teeth that point outward parallel with the axis and resemble the points on a crown. That's why this type of bevel gear is called a crown gear.

Miter gears are mating bevel gears with equal numbers of teeth and with axes at right angles.

Skew bevel gears are those for which the corresponding crown gear has teeth that are straight and oblique.

Bevel gears are classified in different types according to geometry:

  • Straight bevel gears have conical pitch surface and teeth are straight and tapering towards apex.
  • Spiral bevel gears have curved teeth at an angle allowing tooth contact to be gradual and smooth.
  • Zerol bevel gears are very similar to a bevel gear only exception is the teeth are curved: the ends of each tooth are coplanar with the axis, but the middle of each tooth is swept circumferentially around the gear. Zerol bevel gears can be thought of as spiral bevel gears, which also have curved teeth, but with a spiral angle of zero, so the ends of the teeth align with the axis.
  • Hypoid bevel gears are similar to spiral bevel but the pitch surfaces arehyperbolic and not conical. Pinion can be offset above, or below,the gear centre, thus allowing larger pinion diameter, and longer life and smoother mesh, with additional ratios e.g., 6:1, 8:1, 10:1. In a limiting case of making the "bevel" surface parallel with the axis of rotation, this configuration resembles a worm drive. Hypoid gears were widely used in automobile rear axles.

A bearing is a machine element, which supports another machine element. It permits a relative motion between the contact surfaces, while carrying the load. In this automobile gearbox roller bearings are adopted. The ball or roller bearing consists of an inner race, which is mounted on the shaft or journal, and the outer race, which is carried by the housing or casing. In between the inner and outer race there are balls or rollers. A No. of balls or rollers is used and these are helped at proper distance by retainers so that they do not touch each other. The retainers are this strip and usually in two parts, which are assembled after the ball bearings are used for light loads and roller bearings, are used for heavier loads.

Bearings are classified as

  1. Depending upon the direction of load to be supported
  2. Radial bearing: The loads act perpendicular to the direction of the motion of the moving elements.

    Thrust bearing: The load acts along the axis of rotation

  3. Depending upon the nature of contact.
  4. Sliding contact bearing: The sliding takes place along the surface of contact between the moving elements and fixed elements. The sliding contact bearings are also known as plain bearings.

    Rolling contact bearings: The steel balls or rollers are interposed between the moving and fixed elements the balls offer rolling friction at two points for each ball or roller.


A shaft is a rotating element, which is used to transmit power from one place to another. The power is delivered to the shaft by some tangential force and the resultant torque or tensional moment set up within the shaft permits the power to be transferred to various machines linked up to the shaft, in order to transfer the power from one shaft to another the various members such as pulleys, gears etc, are installed on it. This member causes the shaft to bending. In other words we may say that a shaft is used for the transmission of torque and bending. The various members are mounted on the shaft by means of keys or splines.

  1. Materials Used
  2. The material used for ordinary shafts is mild steel where high strength is required. An alloy steel such as nickel, nickel chromium or chrome vanadium steel is used.

  3. Manufacturing Technique
  4. Shafts are generally formed by hot rolling and finished to size by cold awing or turning.

There are two types of shafts:

  1. Transmission shaft
  2. Machine shaft
  • Standard Size Of Shaft
  • 25 mm to 60 mm with 5 mm step

    60 mm to 110 mm with 10 mm step

    110 mm to 140 mm with 15 mm step

    140 mm to 500 mm with 20 mm step

  • Standard Length Of The Shaft
  • 5 meters

    6 meters

    7 meters

  • Stress In Shaft
  • Shear stress due to transmission of torque. Combined torsion and bending. Bending stress due to the force acting up on the machine element like gears, pulleys etc. As well as due to the weight of the shaft itself.


In the conceptual model of “Multi-Functional operating machine” we are giving supply to the main shaft ,as we move along the axis of shaft we have mounted a pair of bevel gears, through the pinion shaft we are giving drive to drill shaft through belt-pulley arrangement, we have installed the stepped pulley in the arrangement therefore we can made the speed variation. Now again as we move along the axis of main-shaft further we have again used the bevel gear arrangement to give the drive to grinding center. As we can see that the scotch yoke mechanism is directly fabricated to the main shaft and have same angular velocity as that of main-shaft.
