Bevel gear wheels YK are used in connection with angle gears to transmit a rotational movement offset by 90°.
The bevel gear wheels are mounted to the shaft journal of a linear, drive or transfer unit with a hub keyway and parallel key and then secured with the enclosed grub screw. The spiral toothing ensures very quiet running while also simplifying the mounting and adjustment of the engagement. The bevel gear wheels are available individually as per the table or in corresponding sets with right-hand or left-hand toothing.
Only bevel gear wheels with different toothing directions can be paired. The ratio is always 1:1 because the bevel gear wheels each have identical tooth counts. The use of selectively hardened steel results in high wear resistance.
