Wealth of product categories to satisfy machine design requirements

Excluding custom gears, when purchasing gears, the important considerations are the brand and the breadth of standard product categories. If the selection is limited, users are forced to supplement their purchases with separate suppliers, creating inconvenience. At KHK, we are striving to improve the convenience of the users by commercializing many generally used product categories. At the same time, we are standardizing many traditionally considered to be difficult to make gears and stocking them.

There are many considerations in how to choose the right gear for use from the list of offered product categories :
– Different force transmission directions, e.g. parallel shafts, linear motion, intersecting shafts, etc.
– Quietness, capacity for strength
– Cost
– Other characteristics such as rust resistance and need for lubrication
These are some of the factors used in selection.

The type of gears not included in KHK’s product categories such as helical internal gears, double-helical gears, face gears, hourglass worm gears, etc. are handled as custom gears.

Within KHK’s standard products, pitch is organized by module or CP (circular pitch). Therefore, if a DP (diametral pitch) gear is required, it will also be treated as a custom gear. In this case, it is necessary to check the availability of a DP hobbing tool for production.
