Cylkro Gears: An Alternative in Mechanical Power Transmission
The article "Cylkro Gears: An Alternative in Mechanical Power Transmission" appeared in the May/June 1996 issue of Gear Technology.
Bevel gears have been the standard for several decades in situations where power transmission has to occur between shafts mounted at a given angle. Now a new approach has been developed that challenges the bevel gear's de facto monopoly in such applications. The concept is based on the principle of the crown gear; i.e., a cylindrical pinion mates with a face gear. Crown Gear B.V. in Enschede, Holland, is the developer of these specialty gear teeth, which are marketed under the trade name Cylkro.
