We keep your wheels turning.
One of the core services that Bronte provide that feeds into many different sectors is Gear Cutting. Gears are what keeps the world turning and are found in nearly every machine in our everyday lives. It’s this versatility that means that standard sizes for Gears have never been established and most application require bespoke sizes. We have a niche in being able to produce large sized gears the size of pallets!
For low speed application Bronte are able to produce a wide variety of Spur Gears. Spur Gears are the most common and are used in applications where noise is not an issue and often at lower speeds. Bronte are able to produce both Internal and External Spur Gears in all sizes.
For higher speed application Bronte are able to produce Helical Gears. Helical Gears differ from Spur Gears in that where Spur Gears have straight teeth, Helical Gears are cut at an angle so as when they mesh the mating flank of the teeth gradually roll into each other which spreads the load during rotation. Bronte are able to produce Internal, External and Double Helical Gears.
As well as individual Gears, Bronte are able to fully manufacture and assemble Planetary Gear Sets. Often called Epicyclic Gears, these sets are able to transmit a high level of torque within a compact space. A central Sun Gear is surrounded by three of four Planet Gears. These are all held together through an outer ring gear with internal teeth. This design spreads the power equally through the gears and enables a Planetary Gear System to achieve a high torque.
Complimenting our Gear Cutting service we also provide a wide range of splined shafts, Splines are used as a drive mechanism to transmit torque from one part to another and we are able to produce both internal and external splines.
