Miter gears are a specific type of a bevel gear that create a 1:1 ratio at 90° due to their 45° pitch cone angle. Though we also offer the larger 2315 Series Miter Gears, 2317 Series Miter Gears are sized for more intricate applications that benefit from compactness and lesser rotating mass!
This 8mm REX™ Bore Miter Gear is able to mesh with any other 2317 Series Miter Gear, regardless of bore size. Simply space the back of each miter gear 20mm from the center of the shaft driving the other miter gear, and make sure their shafts are at 90° to each other.
This miter gear’s 8mm REX bore (as seen in our 5203 Series Yellow Jacket Planetary Gear Motors) is the go-to for beefy, positive drive. Meanwhile, its two M5 set-screws—located on flats 120° apart—ensure that the gear will not move axially along a shaft, even in the most strenuous applications.
