What is a Right Angle Gearbox?
Manufacturers often need right-angle gears for their machinery. A right-angle gearbox is a type of gearbox in which the shaft changes direction at right angles. It can be a 1 to 1 ratio or greater than one such as 2:1 or 15:1. If the ratio is 1:1 it is a right-angle drive. If the ratio is greater than 1:1 it is a right-angle speed reducer.
Right-angle gearboxes can be configured to almost any specifications. Using our standard design components, you can build a right-angle gearbox quickly. For customized designs that meet your needs, custom designs are available by using our Product Configurator. If you are configuring a right-angle gearbox for the first time, consider contacting us.
