Right angle gear boxes are just one subcategory of a vital piece of machinery. The gearbox, also known as a speed reducer or simple transmission, is what processes the energy from the engine to actually set in motion the parts of the machine, such as the blade or drill of a tool or the wheels of a vehicle. Two or more gears must be present and active to make this process work, and the two most important gears are the input and output gears.

The input gear is attached to the engine itself, therefore dealing with the raw energy it puts out. The output gear is sometimes attached directly to the input gear and sometimes has other gears in between, depending on the gear reducer system. Either way, it is always attached to the part of the machine that will be moving. Right angle gear boxes are special because of the way they are set up, with the input gear attached to the output gear perpendicularly. Often made from steel, these gears also have a protective covering.

Right angle gear boxes have such high efficiency levels that they are therefore utilized by a wide variety of industries. Some of these industries include materials handling, automotive, aerospace, recreational, construction, food and beverage processing, oil and gas and textiles. Right angle gear boxes are used in a variety of applications, including use in automation equipment, conveyors, compressors, printing presses, pumps, compressors, generators and robotics. Remanufactured right angle gear boxes are commonly sold by manufacturers.

These gear boxes often come at greatly reduced costs but may lack a warranty. When selecting a gear box, consider the gear ratio, efficiency requirements, mechanical rating, and thermal rating. The gear ratio is defined by the number of teeth in both of the gears involved in the process, and how much work the input gear must do before affecting the output gear. This ratio is how the gear box system is able to slow down the energy output of an engine while retaining or multiplying the amount of force put forth.
