TEAM's Gear Products

TEAM specializes in two basic categories of gears, which differ by the orientation of their axes.

  • Parallel Axes Gears
  • Intersecting Axes Gears

Parallel Axes Gears

There are two main types of Parallel Axis Gears:

Spur Gears
The most common type of Parallel Axis Gears are Spur Gears. They have straight, flat-topped teeth set parallel to the shaft and are the most common type of gears used in industry.

Helical Gears
Helical Gears are a type of Parallel Axis Gear with slanted teeth, making them quieter than Spur Gears,

TEAM’s size range for Spur and Helical Gears:

Maximum Diameter – 8.25 inches
Diametral Pitch – 6PD

Intersecting Axis or “Bevel Gears”

Bevel Gears
Bevel Gears are a type of gear with cone-shaped teeth cut at an angle. They are useful when the direction of a shaft's rotation needs to be changed and are usually mounted on shafts that are 90 degrees apart. However, they can also be designed to work at other angles. The teeth on bevel gears can be straight, spiral or hypoid.

Spiral Bevel Gears
Spiral Bevel Gears are a type of bevel gear with conical and curved teeth with a spiral angle, designed for smooth operation.

Hypoid Gears
Hypoid Gears are similar to bevel gears, but operate on non-intersecting axes. Hypoid Gears have spiral teeth that are curved and oblique, with angled axes.

Zerol® Bevel Gears
Zerol® Bevel Gears are a type of bevel gear with curved teeth and a 0° spiral angle. 

TEAM’s size range for Spiral Bevel, Hypoid & Zerol Gears:

Maximum Pitch Diameter – 16 inches

Straight Bevel Gears
As the name suggests, Straight Bevel Gears are a basic bevel gear with a straight tooth geometry. They have tapered teeth that are widest at the outer part. Straight bevel gears are cost-effective when transmitting power between shafts at right angles.

Maximum Pitch Diameter – 24 inches
