What are Helical Gears?

Helical GearsHelical gears are any gear with the teeth at any angle other than 90 degrees to the face of the gear. The advantage of helical gears is an increased load capacity due to the extended face width over spur gears.

Helical gears may also be ran at 90 degrees to one another by using gears with the same helix angle.
