In the world of mechanical drives, transmitting motion, torque, and power effectively is crucial. This is achieved by transmitting power from a driver shaft to a driven shaft. The driver shaft often operates as part of a prime mover like an electric engine, hydraulic turbine or steam turbine. The driven shaft, on the other hand, forms part of the machine device.
Types of Mechanical Drives
There are four basic types of mechanical drives: gear drive, belt drive, chain drive, and rope drive. Among these, the gear drive is an engagement type rigid drive where motion and power are transmitted through the successive engagement and disengagement of teeth of two mating gears. This type of drive is not only used for light-duty applications like toys and watches but also for heavy-duty applications such as machinery gearboxes and marine drives.
Вінтавая шасцярня: агляд
Вінтавыя шасцярні are a particular type of gear used in gear drives. Unlike spur gears that have straight teeth parallel to the gear axis, helical gears have teeth in helical form that are cut on the pitch cylinder. These gears are largely used for parallel shafts, but they can also be used for perpendicular yet non-intersecting shafts.

Helical gears can be divided into two types: parallel and crossed. Parallel helical gears are commonly used for power transmission between parallel shafts. Two mating parallel helical gears must have the same module, same pressure angle but opposite hands of helix. They provide vibration-free and quiet operation and can transmit heavy load. On the other hand, crossed helical gears or screw gears are used for non-intersecting but perpendicular shafts. These gears are better suited for steep speed reduction, whereas crossed helical gears cannot offer speed reduction beyond 1:2.
