The greater the face width of a gear, the greater the permissible torque

Helical Gear
The face width of the helical gears in GAM's SPH Series are up to 70% longer than some competitor's gears, which means more tooth contact and greater overall torque density.
In order to achieve high torques, especially during shock loading or dynamic applications, the gears must be strong.  SPH gears are case hardened which imparts strength deeper into the gear compared to nitriding which hardens just the surface.  Lastly, they are ground for smooth and quiet operation as well as higher precision
