Spiroid & Helicon
Gearing Solutions, Spiroid
The Spiroid brand includes two similar gearing solutions, Spiroid® and Helicon®. These gear sets are comprised of a pinion and a face-gear operating in non-intersecting and non-parallel axes. By definition, the pinion has fewer teeth and is typically the driving member. This category of gearing is often referred to as “skew axis”.
Spiroid and Helicon are advantageous in that they broaden gearing design opportunities restricted by the physical limitations of conventional gearing. In essence, they represent another powerful design option for engineers looking to transmit higher torques, within smaller spaces, at right angles. Spiroid and Helicon: maximum power density in a 90 degree gearbox solution.
