What are the advantages of hypoid gearing?

What are the advantages of hypoid gearing? Conventional spiral bevel gearing, meshing in the position shown at the bottom of the drawing, has a purely rolling meshing action that is mechanically very efficient.  Its drawback is that it offers the smallest total tooth contact area, so its torque throughput capacity is lower.  Single-stage spiral bevel … Continue reading What are the advantages of hypoid gearing?
