, have parallel and coplanar shafts
. Each of its teeth is straight and usually parallel to the shafts. They provide better transmission efficiency because they are not prone to slippage.
Spur gears are constructed from either steel or brass, but they can also be made from plastics like nylon. Plastic spur gears are known for their reduced noise reduction.
