We offer gear cutting ‘near me’ that specialises in worms and wheels, helical, double helicals, spur gears and sprockets.
A worm drive is a gear arrangement where a worm, which is the shape of a gear in the form of a screw, meshes with a worm gear. It can reduce the rotational speed and allow higher torque to be transmitted.
Helical Gear cutting and double helicals are also known as dry fixed gears, they are curved and the angle makes the tooth shape the shape of a segment of a helix. D P Gears offer this type of gear cutting ‘near me’ to a number of clients who appreciated the refinement over spur gears.
Often considered as one of the simplest methods by which a gear can be cut, a spur gear is cut to be shaped exactly like the tooth space of the gear.
Sprocket gear cutting ‘near me’ goes through a process known as hobbing which is a special type of milling machine. The splines or teeth are progressively cut into the workpiece by a series of cuts made by the hob cutting tool.
