BE Type Miniature Bevel Gearboxes

What are BE Type Miniature Bevel Gearboxes?

Miniature bevel gearboxes are essential components in precision engineering, designed to transmit power at a 90-degree angle between intersecting shafts.

These micro gearboxes are engineered precisely to manage torque and speed adjustments through their bevel gear system. Encased in an aluminium body with a removable plastic cover, the interior gears, crafted from stainless steel and supported with bushings, facilitate the transfer of motion and force with high efficiency and minimal footprint. This allows for their integration into complex mechanical systems, enhancing performance and reliability with compatible components like shaft couplings.

How Miniature Bevel Gearboxes Work.

Miniature bevel gearboxes operate by converting input power into a usable output, adjusting torque and rotational speed through their gear ratios, offered in 1:1 and 1:2 configurations. This capability is critical in applications requiring precise 90-degree directional changes of drive motion, such as in robotics where exact movement control is crucial, or in aerospace and automotive applications where space is at a premium and reliability is essential.

Material Composition of Miniature Bevel Gearboxes.

The materials used to construct our miniature bevel gearboxes include an aluminium body, stainless steel gears and a plastic clip-on cover to shield from debris.

Aluminium is selected for its lightweight properties and strength, offering a durable easy-access housing that supports the gearbox's functionality in various environmental conditions without significant weight addition.

Stainless steel gears are chosen for their resistance to wear and corrosion, ensuring longevity and consistent performance in demanding applications. 

This material combination provides an optimal balance of durability, performance, and weight, catering to the rigorous requirements of your next project.

Sizes and Types of Miniature Bevel Gearboxes Available.

Our miniature bevel gearboxes come in sizes with shaft diameters ranging from 4mm to 12mm, accommodating a wide array of project requirements. The gear ratios available, 1:1 and 1:2, allow for precise adjustments in torque and speed according to the specific needs of an application. The right-angle shape of these gearboxes is engineered for space efficiency, ensuring they can be integrated into systems where space is a constraint. 

For optimal performance, we recommended pairing our miniature bevel gearboxes with our flexible shaft couplings. This combination ensures a high degree of precision and reliability in power transmission within your engineering projects.


Q: How are miniature bevel gearboxes installed?.

A: Being one of our most simple-to-install, these miniature bevel gearboxes have three counter-bored holes right through the body meaning they are ideal to be fastened with cap head screws. They can also be placed onto studs or tapped with a thread to reduce the need for additional nuts.

Q: What does BE type stand for?.

A: BE type refers to the type of bearing used to secure the axles of the gears in place. In this case, BE stands for a plain bearing, also known as a bushing. We also sell BS-type bevel gearboxes which use ball bearings for smoother operation, higher speeds and longer operating lifespan.

Q: In which applications do miniature bevel gearboxes excel?.

A: These gearboxes are particularly suited for applications requiring precise control of motion and power in a compact space, such as in robotics, aerospace and other precision engineering fields where efficiency and reliability are paramount.

Q: How can I select the appropriate miniature bevel gearbox for my project?.

A: The selection should be based on the required shaft diameter, the necessary gear ratio for your application and the operational environment. Consider the specific requirements of your project, including space constraints and performance demands, to choose the most suitable gearbox. For further assistance, our engineering support team is available to provide expert advice tailored to your project needs.
