The pinion is axial free. The Cylkro-Gearset consists of a standard involute pinion and a Cylkro face gear. While mounting the gear set, only the Cylkro face gear needs to be adjusted in the axial direction. The axial position of the pinion can be chosen freely within its tooth width. Advantages:
In applications which require smaller gear diameters or better noise behaviour, Cylkro face gear sets can also be designed and manufactured with helical teeth. As in worm/worm wheels, Cylkro-transmissions can also be constructed with an off-set position of axis
Beside the more common 90° axis angle, Cylkro face gear sets are also available in any axis angle between 0° and 135° The pitch circle between pinion and Cylkro gear is identical in any axis angle between 0° and 135° and is often the ideal solution in complex transmission concepts.
