Herringbone Gear



In this tutorial, we will look at Herringbone gears. They use chevron gears on which the profile of the teeth is inclined in both directions. The teeth are V-shaped. 

They can be considered as two gears with inclined teeth in opposite directions, touching each other. In this way, the load capacity is maintained together with the quieter operation and axial forces are avoided. Refer to the library for more information on Herringbone gears.
