Spur gears are some of the common types of gears
in industrial facilities because of their simplicity. They are designed with straight teeth and are mounted on parallel shafts
. In some cases, the spur gears are used for large gear reductions. The teeth of spur gears have an involute teeth model and mesh each tooth at a time. But this model results in high stress on teeth and noise production. This is the reason why they are rarely used in vehicles. To reduce the noise, most of the gears used in vehicles are helical.Some of the common devices that use spur gears include washing machines, dancing monsters and electric screwdrivers
. The spur gears are made from different types of metals depending on the targeted application. The main materials used to design the spur gears are brass and steel. But you can also find some spur gears made from polycarbonate materials.To see the full list of spur gears and pick the ideal option for your facility, make sure to visit our page.
