Hypoid gearheads

Hypoid gearheads feature a hollow shaft to reach maximum speeds.

Features & benefits

  • HG2 offers low-backlash in a right-angle design as well as high torque and speed, gear ratios in single stage, low noise, and high efficiency

  • TK2 flange output design achieves higher torque transmission than traditional designs, high single-stage reduction ratios; and is smooth-running and fatigue resistant

  • SK2 right-angle design eliminates high-speed co-axial drives and slow-speed right-angle drives; comes with pre-assembled pinion
