Gear cutting service for spur gears, helical gears, internal gears, bevel gears, worms, worm wheels, rack & pinion
Our reputation in the industry for gear cutting has been established over 40 years on the cornerstones of precision, reliability, service and value.
We offer a one-stop precision gear cutting service for businesses large and small and the skilled engineers in our Huddersfield workshops have wide experience of working on most types of gear.
Our services include bespoke gear cutting, design, assembly and maintenance. From the conventional to the unconventional, the simple to the complex, our experienced engineers can custom-cut quality, high precision gears to your specification.
VARIETIES OF GEAR CUTTING
These are a common gear type and among the most cost effective methods of gearing. Generally they have straight teeth and transmit motion and power between parallel shafts.
The teeth of these gears are set at an angle. Helical are similar to spur gears except that helical gear teeth are cut at an angle to the axis. They typically engage more slowly and smoothly than spur and other types of gears used for similar applications, because the load is transferred uniformly and gradually.
Also known as ring gears, these are similar to external spur gears except the teeth are cut into the inside diameter while the outside remains smooth. Internal gears can bring speed reductions and reduced sliding wear and can be used in a wide range of applications
Kenward engineers custom manufacture high quality bevel gears for many industries, from small to large, in a variety of materials and size ranges.
WORMS and WORM WHEELS
We create custom engineered and standard worms for particular gearing applications. We can make single or multiple start worms with right or left hand threads and/or multiple leads.
RACK and PINION
Kenward Precision Engineering can produce rack and pinion mechanisms for most applications. Rack and pinion gearing converts rotational motion into linear motion. Rack and pinion mechanisms are commonly found in steering systems, actuators and printing equipment.
