Precision cutting of a wide variety of gears
Our precision gear cutting service is aimed at businesses large and small and our skilled engineers are experienced in working on a wide variety of gear types. No matter how simple or how complex the job, you can be assured of first class work and rapid service from the team at Westin Engineering.
Creating bespoke components – or reverse engineering new parts from old ones or drawings – is part of our daily work. Our customers come from across the spectrum of industries, among them textiles, mining and quarries, chemical, oil and gas, water, power generation and food and drink.
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 the teeth are cut at an angle to the axis. They typically engage more slowly and smoothly than 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.
We 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
Our experienced engineers 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.
