What are Anti-Backlash Gears?
Anti-backlash gears are an assembly consisting of 2 gears mounted face-to-face on a common hub. The fixed gear is permanently attached to the hub of the assembly. The floating gear is free to rotate on the hub but is attached to the fixed gear by springs. When meshing an anti-backlash gear with a standard gear, the floating gear must be “pre-loaded” so it’s under spring tension. The tension will absorb backlash in the gear until the torque transmitted by the gear mesh overcomes the spring tension imparted to the floating gear.
