recision Gears are designed to be suitable for a wide variety of high-precision industrial applications. The Precision Gears range includes a selection of products, from simple singular Spur Gears to Spiral Bevel Gears. In addition, Accu stocks a number of specialist actuation components, such as Precision Racks and Worm Gears.
Precision Gears can be precisely spaced and calibrated using supporting components such as Spacers or Shim Washers.
Spur Gears are intended for the simple transmission of rotary motion between two parallel shafts, and can be used in different gear ratios to alter the speed and torque of a mechanism. They can also be used in a rack and pinion system to turn rotary motion into linear motion.
These gears are a ring shape with teeth on the internal surface to allow spur gears to rotate inside them, forming a planetary gear system.
Anti-Backlash Spur Gears
They are designed to minimise the amount of backlash, also known as clearance or play between gears. The teeth mesh tightly together to eliminate the effect of variations in centre distance, tooth dimensions and bearing eccentricities. The spring mechanism allows the gear to maintain torque by tightly pinching the teeth of the mating gear. The spring mechanism also helps to absorb interference in the configuration.
Backlash Control Spur Gears
These gears are designed to help control the amount of backlash. They are made from steel and they are suitable for high RPM applications.
