Choosing the Right Lubricant for your Gears

Spur gears are the simplest form of gear. These gears were the original form created when humans first started using gears. A spur gear has straight edges that are all parallel to the center of the gear. Spur gears are ideal for clocks, basic rotating machines, sprinklers, and household appliances, such as washing machines. As with all kinds of gears, for a spur gear to work properly, it must be lubricated. Lubricating gears is not difficult, but it is important to apply the right amount and type of lubrication to...

Materials for Spur Gears

A spur gear is the original form of gear. The teeth on the gear are shaped like rounded triangles, but the top of each tooth is perfectly flat. These gears can sometimes slip more than more complicated gear styles, which is why they are not used in high-pressure systems, such as in a vehicle. However, the gears are perfectly acceptable for a variety of other uses, including in clocks, toys, home appliances, simple machines, and other non-dangerous systems. Because of the widespread use of spur gears, they are made from... Read More

Spur Gears

A spur gear is a cylindrical or disk-shaped tool used to transfer torque to or from other industrial gears. They are among the simplest gear constructions in terms of design and operating principles. They are constructed of a cylinder or disk with simple machined teeth around its perimeter. Variable qualities of material composition, thickness and other features distinguish spur gears from each other, but their conceptual simplicity distinguishes them from all other gear varieties.

Spur gears operate on parallel axes; spur gears’ axes are parallel when they are placed next to each other. When two gears designed to interlock with each other are positioned together, one gear turns and transfers torque to the next gear as a result. This simple mechanism of motion transfer has been utilized in countless industries for centuries. They have been used in windmills, locomotives, automobiles, aircraft, manufacturing machinery, elevators, escalators, hand power tools and an extensive variety of other equipment that involves the transmission of torque. Spur gears are typically used in low speed applications and situations in which noise control is not an issue; they can generate a lot of noise, especially in industrial applications.

Spur gears are available in a variety of materials, including steel, nylon, phenolic, bronze, and cast iron. A given spur gear’s composition and configuration will vary based on its intended use. Spur gears in a hand-held power tool, for example, will need to combine qualities of durability with low weight in order to make the tool effective as well as easy to handle. In large scale milling operations, spur gears are chosen for their qualities of strength, durability and other features that ensure long-term, efficient operation. Depending on the context, noise control may not be a necessary consideration in choosing a spur gear. In every application, though, diameter, pitch values and other similar considerations are necessary to ensure effective operation. A spur gear’s diameter and the size of its teeth contribute to rotational speed and control. The shape of a spur gear’s teeth also contributes to performance; straight teeth are less durable than other shapes, but straight teeth can be much less expensive than other shapes. Such qualities must be evaluated on an individual basis in order to ensure continued, effective and safe gear operation.
