I see that POM gears are often not preferred in high torque settings - but how about 0.4Nm? Is that amount of torque too much for module 1 POM bevel gears? Say they are 16-tooth.
Is 0.4Nm considered moderately high torque?

module 1 16T bevel POM (also called acetal or Delrin) gears are rated at 0.2Nm at http://www.huco.com/products.asp?p=true&cat=285
The webpage also list larger module gears torque ratings.
0.4 Nm is considered low torque in industrial machinery, but could be considered high torque in other fields.
