How HGT gears are made, HGT Gear quality, diamond ground gears, DIN5 gears, Din 6 Gears, straight cut gears

Our Swiss-made straight cut gears are not hobbed like many other brands; they are Diamond Ground to achieve a smooth DIN 5/6 finish.

We have benchmarked competitors and found some with DIN ratings as high as 12 (higher numbers equal less uniform gear profiles). International DIN ratings relate to the uniformity of the surface and overall concentricity with our quality rating of DIN5/DIN6 being considered outstanding.

In addition, our superior DIN rating enables tighter gear backlash by design, eliminating the need for us to build in excessive backlash as compensation.

Our engineers design the pitch, angle and profile of HGT Precision gears for ultimate efficiency and strength resulting in a sequential gearbox that runs cooler with much lower noise levels than most other brands. We use constant mesh dog engagement for gear changes as fast as 40 milliseconds.

All gears are heat treated in-house to provide strength and longevity.
