?Worm and worm wheel
Spur Gear
• Used in transmitting torque between parallel shafts
• Simplest type of gear
• Teeth are cut parallel to shaft axis
• Easy to manufacture
• If one of the gear has infinite diameter, then
it is called rack, ( Rack and pinion)

Helical Gear
• Used in transmitting torque between parallel shafts
• Teeth are cut at an angle with the shaft axis
• Helical gears can be meshed in parallel or crossed orientations.
• The angled teeth engage more gradually than spur gear teeth,
causing them to run more smoothly and quietly
• Double Helical gear

Bevel Gears
• Used to transmit rotary motion between intersecting shafts
• Tooth-bearing faces of the gears are conically shaped
• Bevel gears are most often mounted on shafts that are
90 degrees apart, but can be designed to work at other
angles as well.
• The pitch surface of bevel gears is a cone
