Gear spurs, often referred to simply as "spurs," are a type of cylindrical gear with teeth that are cut straight and extend radially from the center of the gear. Unlike other types of gears, such as helical gears or bevel gears, spurs do not have angled teeth or spiral patterns. Instead, they have teeth that are parallel to the gear's axis.
These straight teeth engage with the teeth of other gears in a meshing operation, transmitting rotational motion and torque between them. Spurs are commonly used in applications where simplicity, cost-effectiveness, and direct power transfer are important factors. They are widely employed in various mechanical systems, including automotive transmissions, industrial machinery, and household appliances.
