Essentially, the gear shaft is the axle of the gear, providing the rotation that allows one gear to engage with and turn another. The process is often known as gear reduction and is essential to transferring horsepower from engine to drive mechanism.
Gear shafts may, as well, contain gear teeth integrated into the shaft, thus becoming a shaft gear. Such shafts with gearing at each end are called intersecting shaft gears. Bevel gears and spiral gears are intersecting shaft gears. A good example of this type of gearing is a helicopter rotor. A vertical intersecting shaft gear from the engine engages one or more horizontal shaft gears to turn the rotors.
Some different types of gear shafts are eccentric shafts, coupling-gear shafts, splined shafts, and keyed shafts. Gears used in a heavy duty application will most likely be manufactured of a sturdy metal.
