Gear Technology - Double Helical Gears


Double helical gears, or herringbone gears, overcome the problem of axial thrust presented by "single" helical gears by having two sets of teeth that are set in a V shape. Each gear in a double helical gear can be thought of as two standard mirror image helical gears stacked. This cancels out the thrust since each half of the gear thrusts in the opposite direction. They can be directly interchanged with spur gears without any need for different bearings. Double helical gears are more difficult to manufacture due to their more complicated shape.
