Anti-Backlash Gears are a type of Precision Gear which are designed to minimise the amount of backlash, also known as clearance or play between gears. These gears have a tighter mesh to minimise backlash and eliminate the effect of variations in centre distance, tooth dimensions and bearing eccentricities.
These anti backlash spur gears have a mechanism with built-in springs between two gears that pull each other in order to pinch the mating gear like a scissor. The direction of the gear is reversible as the springs continue to maintain torque by pinching the mating gear. The spring mechanism also helps to absorb interference in the configuration.
