How Spur Gear Motors Work
Spur gears are the most common type of gears in use today due to their simplicity, performance capabilities, and economical cost. These gears are mounted on parallel shafts and distribute power through interlocking straight cut teeth that project radially and are parallel to the gear’s axis. Spur gears are extremely efficient and can provide very high reduction ratios by adding multiple gear stages to the gear train. The combination of gear stage and gear material options, along with AC or DC motor integration results in a wide range of possible performance capabilities typically best applied in continuous and mid to low duty cycle applications.
